The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday called on residents of the State to reject governorship candidates with questionable source of wealth in the Saturday, March 18 election, in Ogun State.
The party also asked electorates to come out en masse and vote for Governor Dapo Abiodun, saying the Governor has done so well and deserved to be re-elected.
The Publicity Secretary, Tunde Oladunjoye who said this in Abeokuta on Sunday, raised the alarm that such candidates are planning to buy votes with their ill-gotten wealth.
According to him, the people of Ogun State should make the next gubernatorial and State House of Assembly elections “the icing on the cake, having chosen Asiwaju Bola Ahmed as President-elect, the only way to reap the fruits of our labour and benefits from the Bola Tinubu presidency, is to elect Prince Dapo Abiodun and all our candidates in the Saturday elections”.

He, however, warned voters to “beware of people with ill-gotten wealth taunting and touting to buy people with money.
“The party must state clearly, for the benefit of doubt, that our dear Ogun state is not for sale. No matter how they got their filthy wealth or how how much they are offering, Ogun State is not for sale.
“Ogun state has made tremendous progress in all areas of economy and attained unprecedented landmarks in the last three year and nine months that we cannot afford to gamble with the future of our dear state”, the statement added.
“The APC government led by Prince Dapo Abiodun has housing estates for the masses more than all previous governments put together; we have paid and continue to pay the minimum wage for workers and other welfare programme, the Ogun International Agro-Cargo Airport is not only a source of envy to state governments, it is also an affirmation that no height is too great for a creative, prudent and focused government to attain.”
Oladunjoye added that “Look at the opposition and put them together; what programme have they announced? They peddle lies, make empty boasts and insult our people, including traditional rulers. They have been largely ignored because we are confident that the people of Ogun state will tell them at the polls that the state is not for sale and cannot be handed over to gamblers.”
