‘Zimbabwe Formula’ Used In Ekiti Won’t Work In Osun – Adeleke

Published

on

Isiaka-AdelekeThe first civilian governor of Osun State and All Progressives Congress chieftain, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, has warned that the “Zimbabwe formula” used in June 21 governorship election in Ekiti State will fail in the August 9 Osun poll.

The warning was contained in a statement thanking the people of Ede Federal Constituency for their show of solidarity during the APC mega rally in the town.

Adeleke urged the party faithful “to be 24 hours on our guards” before, during and after the election.

The statement reads: “Your support for me, the leaders of our party in Ede Federal Constituency is overwhelming. You have demonstrated by your patriotic action that I can always count on you, any day and anytime to make our party – APC grow from strength to strength”.

The former governor reminded the people that “it is not over” yet, appealing to them to treasure their voter cards jealously and use them “to bring Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola back for a second term as governor”.

He also urged them to continue to educate voters on the need to come out and vote.

“Osun belongs to the down-trodden masses of our people, who determine where victory goes. We therefore repose confidence in you all to make August 9, 2014, a landslide victory for APC in the governorship election.

“I enjoin parents to please take good care of their children, so as not to fall victim of the antics of the opposition, who have perfected plans to kidnap innocent children and put the blames on the doorsteps of APC leaders.

“Don’t allow your voter cards to be bought for a paltry N2, 000 as being planned by the opposition in Ede. Your voter cards are your weapons to see Ogbeni Aregbesola back in Osun”, he said.
