No threat to your lands, Jegede assures Idanre indigenes

Akure: The Popular Democratic Party, PPD, candidate for governor for the October 10 elections in Ondo state, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN), has dismissed speculation that Idanre’s lands will be threatened under his rule as governor.

Jegede provided the guarantee on Wednesday in the palaces of the Alade-Idanre monarch, the Alade Okin, Oba Olusegun Akinbola, and the Idanre, the Owa, Oba Federick Aroloye, when he visited the communities as part of his campaign tour.

According to him, “I am a great defender. I’m not looking for your lands. Please ignore all these made up stories from our opponents, who feel threatened by their decision to vote for the PPD in Saturday’s election.

“Yes, I am from Akure but I have lived my whole life enjoying the good relationship between Idanre and Akure and we must not allow these detractors to create disaffection between us in the name of politics.

“I am not a land grabber and I am not a pedestrian in thought, by the grace of God.”

He also assured thousands of his followers who flocked to meet him despite the downpour, that he would do everything possible to alleviate the sufferings of the masses.

Jegede promised to put in place the basic amenities currently lacking in and around Idanre.

These amenities, he said, include roads, electricity, water, affordable healthcare and a quality, affordable educational regimen.

Oba Federick Aroloye urged the candidate to help the communities of the Kingdom of Idanre by fixing their deplorable roads, especially the road that connects Idanre with Ofosu.
