With less than 90 days to the 2019 general election, candidate of Ogun East Senatorial District on the platform of African Democratic Congress (ADC), Engr. Deji Ashiru (EDA), on Wednesday, kicked-off his campaign.
Welcoming the party supporters from all the nine cocal councils which make up the senatorial district at his campaign office at Olisa street, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, Ashiru thanked the party elders and his teeming supporters for their steadfastness and admonished them to work assiduously for the emergence of all the candidates of the ADC at all levels in the state come 2019.
According to Ashiru, ” I will ensure that Ogun East Senatorial District has access to quality infrastructural development and also create feedback mechanism channels where I would be able to interface with my people at all times, ” he said.
Speaking further, Ashiru pledged not to be an Abuja politician and added that he would always sponsor bills based on his constituency’s needs.
He enjoined his political supporters to be law-abiding and comport themselves in accordance with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s guidelines before, during and after the campaign and the election proper come 2019.
Speaking earlier, Director-General, EDA Campaign Organisation, Mr. Babajide Otubanjo, reiterated the need for all the party supporters to close ranks and work for the party to emerge victorious not only at the Senatorial level but across boards.
As expected, the flag-off caused gridlock for hours due to the mammoth crowd of supporters who came to witness their candidate’s campaign flag-off.
During the Ward to Ward tour, the campaign organisation said that Ashiru would traverse the 103 wards, nine local government areas and 1,135 polling booths which make up the entire senatorial district.
