A pro-Okeogun group- Tiwantiwa, has urged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State to look at the direction of an erstwhile chairman of ATISBO local government, Dr. Jacob Ogunmola as the running mate of its governorship candidate, Oloye Bayo Adelabu.

The party is billed to choose a Christian from one of the 10 local government areas of Okeogun as Adelabu’s running mate.

OYO INSIGHT recalled that Ogunmola had been shortlisted alongside others to run with the ex.deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.



The group in a statement signed by Chief Ajekigbe Isiaka and made available to journalists after its meeting in Iseyin, said Ogunmola is one of the indigenes of the zone who have the their love at heart.

As council helmsman, Ogunmola, who has a PhD in accounting, tarred over 80 kilometres of Road across the towns and villages in the council area.

“He added that “He built 3 blocks of class room in 37 schools across the Council area. He also constructed 2 health centers.

“Apart from these, he has, in the last 12 years, empowered over 6,500 widows with cash gift to start thier various businesses throughout Okeogun.

“Not long ago, he gave scholarship to over 400 students of Okeogun region in various tertiary institutions while he has drilled 6 borehole in various places of worship  i.e mosque and churches

“Equipment were bought for artisans to build their capacity i.e tailor, vulcanizer, knitting, welders etc. His foundation has renovated all the major town all within ATISBO,” he noted.

The group, however, added that “despite leaving office as chairman since 2015, he has remained  in APC till date and more importantly within the camp of Governor Abiola Ajimobi.

“What is required of a deputy governor is loyalty and Ogunmola has displayed it, even in troubled time. He doesn’t have record of betrayal and this is one of the reasons why we believe he is the best man for the job. We can vouch for him. This statement should be kept for record purpose.
