He further appealed to the people of the State to vote for Otegbeye who has the capacity to restore the Ogun at the forthcoming polls on Saturday.

His words: “If the current government cared about continuity, by now, Ogun State would have grown in leaps and bounds. But what do we see today? Retrogression. And that is why I am out; that is why we must return to that path of development, that path of glory, that path of ‘we are Ogun State.

“Somebody came and reduced the six-lane road to two-lane. Is there any sense in this? We should not draw back development.

“That’s why I rise up to call on you. Let’s come out in large numbers on March 11 to cast our votes for ADC and Biyi Otegbeye. On that day, let’s exercise patience and wait until the votes are counted. Don’t give room to thuggery and rigging.”

Otegbeye at the campaign event also appealed for the support of the people, pledging to create opportunities for all and preserve the legacies of past leaders in the State.

The ADC flag bearer noted that ”I want to assure you that the legacies of our leaders in Ogun State that we point to, and are proud of, will be preserved and enhanced.

“We don’t want the standard to continue falling. Right now, there is no standard anymore.”
