A group operating under the aegis of Non-Yoruba Indigenes of All Progressive Congress Forum (NYIAF), a political arm of non indigenes in Ogun State Zone has said there is need to check the excesses of some political gladiators that may come up with the intentions of bringing up candidates from strange camps to succeed the current governor.
Speaking to journalists at the one year anniversary of NYIAF, held in Ota, Ogun State at the weekend, Chairman of NYIAF, Chief (Dr.) Chris Orie commended Governor Ibikunle Amosun for the efforts the governor has put to see that the state moves to the next level.
He added that imposition of candidate would not give room for all-inclusive development, saying the current development going on in Ogun state by the Senator Amosun led government should be upheld by both indigenes and non-indigenes.
Orie, while describing Gov Amosun as God sent said since the beginning of political dispensation in Ogun State, no government has ever approved mass release of Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) to both indigenes and non-indigenes as much as the present Ogun State government has done.
Expressing satisfaction for the Land Grabbers’ Law initiated by the governor, Orie pointed out that such move is another landmark achievement in favour of both the Non Yoruba Indigenes and Indigenes in the state.
He urged Ogun State people to watch very carefully and also resist any form of imposition of candidate to run their affairs in the upcoming general election in the state, adding “I see Amosun as a Devil we know which is better than that angel we don’t know.”.
