A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole has been presented as the governorship candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), for Ogun State in the 2019 elections.
Bankole, who was presented to the party by the state chairman, Chief Wale Egunlet vowed to pursue vigorously, mass employment, which is the motor of the party, if elected as the governor in 2019.
The former Speaker said that the economic complexities of Ogun is not difficult, adding that the opposition party places priority on competence and credibility.
“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.
“Also speaking on behalf of all other candidates, I want to tell that come February and March 2019, we will deliver.
“I am speaking with all confidence in 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 grassroots level.
“We’re willing to work. I therefore call on all of us to join hands with our party in Ogun State to tell the whole world that there is different way of doing politics, to tell the whole world that we are united and that competence and credibility is the choice of ADP. We are sure that the people of Ogun State will follow us.”
