LAGOS – With the primary elections for the Ondo governorship election drawing closer, one of the contenders in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Olayide Adelami, has become the beautiful bride for the race to Alagbaka Govern­ment House.

Two groups, the APC Dem­ocratic Movement and the Akoko Progressives Forum, have endorsed Adelami, for­mer Deputy Clerk of the Na­tional Assembly, as their pre­ferred governorship aspirant ahead the APC primaries.

In a statement, State Coor­dinator, Adewumi Ifeoluwa, and General Secretary, Akin­wunmi Victor, the APC Dem­ocratic Movement said that Adelami was chosen based on his achievements, especially in the area of human capital development.

The group said, “Having looked into the antecedents of all governorship aspirants, including the incumbent gov­ernor, the movement decided to support an aspirant with no biased antecedent and who is interested in human develop­ment.

“The movement decided to pull its strength for the emer­gence of a candidate who has the experience in dealing with the public, not as a politician, but as a public servant who knows the needs of the masses.”

It said that it picked Adela­mi, the Owo-born public ser­vant and a fellow of several professional bodies, because of his antecedent in the public service.

According to it, Adelami “knows the masses more, he has related with the people and this gave us the assurance that the retired Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly can influence physical devel­opment and impact the lives of Ondo State people as he has always done within Owo, Ondo North and Ondo State at large during his service as a public servant.”


In a statement signed by Ibitoye Olajide and Abiola Florence, its Coordinator and General Secretary, the Forum said, “Having looked into the antecedents of all aspirants, including the incumbent gov­ernor, the movement decided to support, canvas and vote for an aspirant with no bashed antecedent and who has inter­ested in human development in the past years.”

According to it, Adelami had had experience in dealing with the public and knew the needs of the masses, adding, the Owo-born public servant, was endorsed by the move­ment because of his past re­cord in the public service.
