With Over 8,000 members, Adelami Political movement collapses structure for Aiyedatiwa

Over 8,000 members of the Adelami political movement have collapsed the structure for Ondo state governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, ahead of this year’s governorship election in the state.

The group, which has now transformed into Aiyedatiwa/Adelami Grassroots Mobilizers, has its members politically rooted in the 18 local government areas of Ondo state.

Olayide Adelami is the current deputy governor of Ondo state, who in 2020, contested the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary.

Director General of the group, Segun Ogodo, who led the leadership of the movement to the deputy governor’s office in Akure, on Wednesday, said the decision to collapse the structure for Aiyedatiwa was borne out of conviction that only the governor can take the state to the next level.

Ogodo described the deputy governor as a true party man who contributed immensely to the success of APC in the 2020 governorship election in Ondo state.

He said, “Dr Adelami went out of his way to donate massively to the campaign of Arakunrin Akeredolu in 2020 and that was part of the things that gave us result. After the election, he kept sustaining us across the 18 local government areas till date.

“The structure has remained vibrant and solid for grassroots political mobilisation since then. We can boast of over 8,000 APC registered members across the state who are ready to work for the return of Aiyedatiwa as governor of Ondo state”

Ogodo congratulated the deputy governor on his appointment, stressing that he is indeed a great leader who will definitely compliment the governor’s effort targeted at transforming the state across all sectors.

In his response, the deputy governor thanked members of the group for their loyalty and support throughout the time of struggle in the 2020 governorship election

He tasked members of the group on aggressive grassroots mobilisation for Governor Aiyedatiwa to emerge victorious in the November 2024 governorship election.

He said “It gladdens my heart that I urged you all to work relentlessly for the governor to emerge victorious in the coming election. Let us be united and put in every effort to make the Aiyedatiwa project a success.

The event had in attendance, local government coordinators and state excos of the group, including the convener, Olusola Alajo, the woman leader, Funke Ogunode, Pioneer State Welfare Officer of APC in Ondo state, Jerome Olorunyolemi and Convener of the Youth Vanguard, Leye Akinola.
