BankoleTHE governorship candidate of the African Democratic Party (ADP), Hon Dimeji Bankole, has assured party members and the people of Ogun State of his readiness to serve them diligently as the governor of the state if elected into office in the general elections.
Bankole who was the Speaker of the House of Representatives from 2007 to 2011 said this on Monday when he was officially unveiled by the party as its flagbearer, at the party’s secretariat in Abeokuta, by the State chairman, Chief Wale Egunleti.
The former speaker is from Ogun Central Senatorial District which produced the incumbent,  Senator Ibikunle Amosun who has been administering the state from 2011 to date.
He explained that the party belongs to the masses and promised not to waste their mandate.
“I am exceedingly happy to be nominated as our party’s gubernatorial candidate. I am grateful to this massive structure you have built in the last six years, especially in the last two years.
“I promise that I will not, in any capacity, play with the ticket that you have given. I believe I can speak on behalf of all other candidates that come February and March 2019, we will deliver.

“I am speaking with all confidence with the work that you have done in the last two years, and still doing, most of it covertly. We are in for a shot at the seat in this state.  We are dependent on God and the work that we have done and still doing especially at the grassroots level.

“I assure you that the economic complexities of the Ogun State are not difficult. And the motor of our party ‘Mass Employment’ is something that we will follow,” he said.

Egunleti described Bankole as a tested and trusted leader who has the capacity to deliver good dividends of democracy to the people of the state.

“When we began our long walk to freedom, we knew that the road ahead would be tough. We were, however, strengthened by our resolve to abide by democratic principles and distinguish ourselves from those who engage in acts which are detrimental to our democracy.

“I commend you all for your commitment and the role you played in making this happen,” the chairman said.
