NNPP backs Ajadi, says Ogun needs credible candidate – VELOXNEWS


By Bolaji Okunola

Ogun State chapter of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has thrown its weight behind Olufemi Ajadi, as the party’s candidate for 2023 gubernatorial election.

This was made during the party’s Congress held in Abeokuta, the state capital. While addressing newsmen, the candidate vowed to provide infrastructural development in the state if elected, adding that more plans would be reveal before the forthcoming election.

“Very soon, we are going to release our manifesto where you will be able to know more about the things we want to do for the state. The situation of the roads in our state is in bad shape. Aside from that, the situation of state capital is worrisome in terms of road and infrastructure. All these are what we’re planning to reshape.”

The state chairman, Oginni Olaposi said the party would embark on infrastructural and economic development if elected in 2023.

“We are not pleased with the state of things at the moment. We are coming out with a very vibrant, young and energetic governor that will take over.  When we emerge, our party will embarked on ‘Operation No Pothole.’

“How do you want to maximise the economy prowess of the state with these bad roads? And the government in power is doing nothing about it. There is no way you can make an economy of the state to work without having good roads. What is happening in Ado-Odo Ota is not what anybody prays for. It is telling us that there is no government.”
