A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, Alhaji Ademola Oyepeju, has attributed the slow pace of development in Oluyole local government area to lack of competent people with genuine intrest in the development of the area.
According to him, “Oluyole is one of the luckiest local government to have both state and federal constituency but the people have are not enjoying the opportunity because we have not been lucky to have competent people with genuine interest and passion in the development of the local government.”
Oyepeju, who spoke in a chat with journalists in Ibadan, explained that “Though the council is big in terms of landmass and population but the quality of representation is too low and come 2023 the people will make a better choice that will better their lots.
“Take for instance most of the communities in the council are rural community, they don’t have basic amenities, poor infrastrural facilities, many school buildings are delapidated and some don’t even have chairs in their classrooms.
That council is part of the food basket of Oyo state, but our farmers have no access to loans and imputs from government to boost their businesses, if wr have right people in place all this things would have been catered for .
“Like I said earlier, the people of Oluyole are wiser now, they will never support people with no idea of what they are going through, as a grassroots politician I do visit our people from time to time and I know what they are going through and I am offering the little help ai could through ARA foundation which I started few years ago basicaly to assist the less privileged,” he concluded
