The Eleruwa of Eruwa, Oba Samuel Adegbola, has stated that what his community needs is not borehole but running water to all homes.
The monarch spoke when the gubernatorial candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), in Oyo state and former governor of the state, Otunba Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala, visited him yesterday.
According to Oba Adegbola, “No politician should come and promise us borehole, we don’t need borehole at this level. We have a river that can supply adequate water to the town, various governments have promised and failed.
This is just as he noted that kings are not God but a father to all who has a responsibility to pray to God on behalf of his children, adding that he will not exercise fear in doing the job of praying as a father to all to make things work out in the society.
He stated that he doesn’t doubt the ADP candidate or his ability to fulfill his promises, adding that he can also confirm that he did a lot for the zone during his administration as governor, adding that he was the first governor to give cars to every member of the council of obas rather than just its executives.
He urged politicians to love the country and Oyo state and vote without violence. He also urged people to vote their conscience and not allow sentiments lead them to take decisions that will add burden to the people as a whole and concluded that whoever God appoints for the state as governor they will support.
