Ogun LG Poll: Abeokuta South Residents throw Support For MKO

Few months to the local government and Ward elections in Ogun state, people from different local governments areas of Abeokuta have begun chatting their preferred choices for the Chairmanship seats.

One of the local governments our reporter visited was Abeokuta South Local Government, where, just like other local governments, several aspirants are jostling for the seat. 

All the 20 local governments in the state have, since the inception of the current administration of Prince Dapo Abiodun, been under the leadership of caretakers, who are charged with mandate of steering the affairs of the LGAs in the short run. 

However, governor Abiodun on Thursday, 18th March, 2021,  inaugurated the six members of the OGUN State Independent Electoral Commission to kick-start the Local Government election in the state.

The inauguration pricked the "crowing" of many aspirants who felt they have the entire know-how to rejuvenate the dwindling glory of the individual local government.

During our correspondent's tour of Abeokuta South Local Government, the minds of the residents reverberated and the intent was mad loud to know whom they really and dearly have at heart. 

Babajoko, a resident of Panseke said "I have heard a lot about most of the aspirants, most of them are of good character but not all them are good to be our leaders. The only person I know can give us what we want in Abeokuta South is Mustapha Kodaolu, the man we call MKO. He is a man that understand the people and he has  a grassroots relationship with the people and he knows what the people want"

Also, Akindele, a shop owner in Oke'lewo disclosed "MKO is who we want, we want a man who will understand our pains, who can lead us in the right direction. If we give MKO the opportunity, I bet you, we will all laugh.

Another, a trader who simply identified herself as Mama Dare, stressed that when it comes to transformation, Kodaolu has the capacity to transform the local government, she expressed optimism "MKO can take the good work from where others stop to the next level".

Also, residents of Ijeu-Titun said Hon. Mustapha had served as the Councilor of their Ward, adding that his outstanding performance during the period was indefatigable. 

One of them, Yemisi Dauda, "MKO is not new to us, we have always Known him, he is a man of change, a man of transformation. I believe nothing dies in his hands, give it to him, he will lead us well.

From the look of things MKO seems to be a household name through out the 15 Wards that make up the local government, as he is seen as a bridge builder and the unifying point of Abeokuta South LGA.
