I will Contest Councillorship Next Election, Says Popular OAP, Elegbede

…‘It’s a new journey for me’

Popular OAP and media personality, Ayoade Elegbede, has announced that plans are underway to declare his interest in contesting the Abeokuta North Local Government Ward 16 councillorship position in the forthcoming LG and ward election in the gateway state.

He described the move as “the beginning of a new journey in his life.”

Recall that Ogun Update Online News, last year, exclusively reported that the former NTA Abeokuta newscaster, was preparing to delve into politics, ahead of forthcoming elections in Ogun State.

The popular OAP said he’s going into politics to make a positive change that can impact on the lives of people. “Orile Ibara is an agrarian community with thousands of potentials which if properly harnessed will contribute heavily to the economic development of the people of our community, Abeokuta North local government and Ogun state as a whole. My slogan is "Nothing About Us Without Us!" as I strongly believe that no policy should be decided by any representative without the full and direct participation of members of the group affected by that policy” he said. 
“It’s going to start a new journey in my life and a new path for the Orile Ibara. It  is high time my people begin to look for someone that is ready to serve them. My people have suffered a lot over the years. If you go to our community today, there are lot of things that still need to be done.”

"That’s why I am coming out to serve my people. They need a voice, they need to be heard and they need somebody that will turn their cries to smile. No other person can do it better than  myself,” Elegbede added.
