Amid political intimidation and harrassment on him, Deputy Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Hon. Olakunle Oluomo has declared that his death is not in any man’s hand.
He spoke at Iperu, the country home of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in the next general elections, Prince Dapo Abiodun on Sunday.
Oluomo, who represents Ifo 1 State Constituency, appealed the party to address imposition and impunity which in recent time has been its bane.
He said to ensure that APC remains formidable and united political party ahead of the 2019 general elections, he said all hands must be on deck.
His words: “When injustice becomes a role, resistance becomes a duty. All of you know what happened to me recently and it even repeated itself three days ago but no one can kill me. We must all brace up because no one gets to the middle of the river and still complains of cold. I pray that we will all come out victorious,”
APC chieftain, Hon. Bode Mustapha, while craving for the unity of purpose among members for the party’s victory, expressed delight that the party had been liberated with recent happenings within the party.
“We must just thank God today because our most preferred candidate has emerged and as a result, we must continue to pray for the candidate and as well stretch the hands of fellowship to other aggrieved members.
He added: “We must note today that, I am not doing this because I want to contest for any political post but I am doing this so as to set the records straight for our unborn generations to come.
“When you go to war, at the end of the day, you must come back and jaw and, as a result, I want to appeal to everybody to forget the issue of groups and embrace one another so as to form a formidable party that will win during the 2019 general election. Yes, the time has come to bury the weapons of war.”
