The Director-General of the IleriOluwa Flag Bearers in the State of Osun, Comrade Abayomi Okedokun, has said Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has given them reasons to be proud of bearing his flag through his outstanding performance in the first two years of his administration.
Okedokun said the commitment of the IleriOluwa Flag Bearers to the support of Governor Oyetola’s administration has been compensated by the progressive works of Oyetola since his emergence as Governor of the State, adding that their services have not been a waste of time.
Okedokun, while speaking during the commemoration of the first year anniversary of the organisation, empowerment of members and inauguration/swearing-in of the Coordinators of IleriOluwa Flag Bearers across all Local Governments, commended members of the organisation for keeping faith with Oyetola.
Okedokun said: ” Governor Oyetola has made us proud on many fronts. People who thought we were wasting our time bearing the IleriOluwa flag in support of Oyetola now understand our motivation.
“Governor Oyetola is 100 per cent a gentleman, a man of his words and a principled man. He is a man who is willing and ready to do what is in the best interest of the people. We are all aware that he is paying full salaries, he is constructing and reconstructing roads, making very crucial interventions in health, and other sectors.
“He can count on our continued support, and I am particularly proud to bear his flag. I am happy to throw my full weight behind such an outstanding man, I am happy to support him even with all my degrees”, Okedokun stated.
Also speaking at the event, the Commissioner for Works and Transport, Remi Omowaiye, lauded the IleriOluwa Flag Bearers for supporting Governor Oyetola, adding that their support had been instrumental to helping the government navigate through various challenges.
“Despite the COVID-19 and other disruptions that have surfaced this year and even since then beginning of the Oyetola-led administration, our leader has been delivering on many fronts. We have been working unhindered because our leader is only concerned about results.
“On behalf of Governor Oyetola, we thank you for your support. Your support has motivated this government to navigate through the challenges it has faced so far.
“We assure you that the government does not trivialize your role in its progressice agenda. It is a collective responsibility and you are doing your part through your support. Please relax, and do not be ashamed of your affiliation with Oyetola, because he is a man of substance, one who has plans for a better and greater future for the State of Osun”, Omowaiye stated.
Earlier in his remark, the Coordinator of the IleriOluwa Campaign Marshall, Comrade Taiwo Bakare, also commended the IleriOluwa Flag Bearers for their support, adding that they should be more active in the political process.
“I charge you all to be active. Register with the party if you have not done so and be fully involved. Let us all protect the interest of our party because this party has progressive agenda for the State of Osun. Each of you, after bearing your flag in support of our Governor, return to your wards and local governments to defend the interest of the party there”, Bakare said.
