Ogun 2023 governorship election: NNPP still in the race – Oguntoyinbo

With less than a week to the March 11 polls, the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) governorship candidate in Ogun state, Ambassador. Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo on Saturday stated that he is still in the race 

Ambassador Oguntoyinbo in a statement personally signed by him and made available to journalists in Ibadan asked the people of Ogun state to disregard “any fake information on his stepping down for any political party”.

The NNPP governorship candidate emphasised that he was still much in the race to liberate the people of Ogun state from ” the hands of political machinery, whose their stock in trade is political propaganda”.

Ambassador Oguntoyinbo who described those behind the said rumour making rounds the state as political desperados declared that the rumour was “untrue and a cheap blackmail by opposition parties to discredit his growing popularity’.

Maintaining that NNPP remained the only party with the interest of the masses, youth oriented party and the party that would deliver free and qualitative education to youths as well as provide job opportunities to all, Ambassador Oguntoyinbo said the rumour that he had stepped down from the guber race in the state was untrue and a mere blackmail, insisting that the NNPP was still very much in the race.

“I want to use this avenue to appreciate those that believe in my ability and capacity to move the forward. Those that stand by me, those that stand behind me and those that feel concern about the handiwork of political jobbers”, he said.

Ambassador Oguntoyinbo added, “I want to assure good people of Ogun state that I am not in any negotiation with any political party or candidate, I am still much in the race and victory is ours.

According to him, having toured all the 20 local government areas in the state, ” the level of his acceptability by the electorate is making other political parties jittery, hence, the need for the political desperados to opt for political propaganda, lies,  misinformation and deception”.

Ambassador Oguntoyinbo stressed that the people of Ogun state are already aware of the antics of some politicians which cannot take them anywhere in the governorship election.
