The Gubernatorial candidate of the African Democratic Party (ADC), Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka (GNI) in Ogun State has again visited Governor Dapo Abiodun at his Office in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the State capital.
Isiaka led members of his political family, “the Believe Movement” to meet Governor Abiodun on Monday.
The ADC Governorship candidate’s second visit in less than three weeks is an indication that he and his loyalists would soon would soon dump the ADC for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Isiaka who hinted that he and his loyalists might soon join the APC, noted that there were positive things happening between “the Believe Movement” and the State Chapter of the APC, adding that it was not for him to say exactly what would happen in the future “because his movement needed to report back to the people that sent them.”
Those who came with the three-time Governorship candidate were stalwarts of different opposition parties in the State, among them were former State Chairman of the PDP, Chief Joju Fadairo; all the three ADC members in the State House of Assembly – Adegoke Olusesis Adeyanju (Egbado North I); Aruna Lawal (Egbado North II) and Jemili Akingbade (Imeko/Afon).
Other were a former Commissioner for Women Affairs in the State, Chief Mrs Mary Ogunjobi and Mr. Yemi Sodimu, broadcaster and former Special Adviser on Information under Otunba Gbenga Daniel.
They expressed “total confidence that the present administration of Governor Abiodun in the State is taking the State to a higher pedestal”.
It would be recalled that Isiaka served in the transition committee of Governor Abiodun while the Governor on several occasions had also maintained his resolve to run an all inclusive government which according to him would involve members of the opposition parties.
Isiaka said, although he contested under the platform of the ADC, he could not speak for the party and its direction in the present political arrangement.
The ADC Gubernatorial candidate, said with what is on ground, there was no doubt that Governor Abiodun led administration was moving in the right direction.
He said, “I am not ADC. I only contested on the platform of the ADC. But I am a very strong member of the ADC. ADC has its National and State Chairmen but I have come because I led a political movements into ADC some months ago, So, I have come here on the platform of that movement”.
He added, that “majority of us are ADC but we are not here to talk about the ADC because ADC has its own procedure of going about things. Let me assure you that positive things between the relationship of the Believe Movement and the APC will happen soon”.
“We came to see our Governor as a way of moving our relationship forward. We had interactions with our people all over the State and they mandated us to come and talk with our Governor. All the areas that needed clarification, we have gotten them. So we need to go back to them and within the next couple of days, the full outcome of this meeting would be made to the public.”
“We are very confident because the morning shows the night from what we have seen in five months. If we have not seen positive signs, we probably would not have graduated our relationship. I have come with the leadership of my political structure all across the state. This is to signify the fact that we are very confident and happy the way government is going about putting the State in a greater scale”, he said.
