‘It’s Unjust Ogun West Hasn’t Produced Governor’ — Says Former Lagos Senator, Yayi | MarvelTvUpdates

Senator representing Ogun West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Adeola Solomon Yayi, says it is unjust that the district has not produced a governor since the creation of the state in 1976.

Adeola, Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, made the statement on Saturday in Lagos.

He spoke at the Yewaland Development Forum(YDF) 8th Distinguished Lecture Series, ‘Yewas Talk’ and his Investiture as the Grand Patron of the Forum.

It was gathered that the lecture titled ‘Yewaland: Harnessing Our Potential and Opportunities Towards 2027 and Beyond,’ was held at the Lagos Airport Hotel, Ikeja.

“It is no longer news that our area has suffered in the scheme of things since the creation of Ogun State on Feb.3, 1976.

“In the over 48 years history of Ogun State, no one from our senatorial district has been opportune to lead the state as the number one citizen.

“This unjust and inequitable anomaly is not as a result of not presenting ourselves for service or indeed a result of lack of eminently qualified persons,” Adeola said.

He said that all hands must be on deck to liberate the people of Yewaland politically and empower them economically.

“Towards 2027, a leading and knowledge-based organisation as YDF must dispassionately look at all the factors that should engender success for Ogun West senatorial district in the governorship race.

“I have no doubt that the wherewithal to achieve the just aspiration of our people is available but we must consciously and painstakingly put our best foot forward this time around.

“Going forward, I don’t expect anyone from Yewaland to be a bystander in the ongoing struggle for political power in Ogun State,” he said.
