Front line Yewa politician, Senator Iyabo Anisulowo has lauded the unprecedented landmark achievements of Otunba Bimbo Ashiru in the present administration in Ogun State, describing him as a worthy gubernatorial material capable of moving the state forward.
Senator Anisulowo stated this as the consultation team of Ogun East Senatorial zone led by its Chairman, Pa Folorusho Elias, arrived Ogun West to sensitise stakeholders in the district of his political aspiration.
According to Anisulowo, Otunba Bimbo Ashiru is undoubtedly the best hand in Gov. Amosun’s cabinet going by his exemplary track record and proficiency.
The meeting, held at the Otegbeye Pavillion in Ilaro, had in attendance APC leaders from Ogun East as well as their counterparts in Ogun West Senatorial District including former Special Adviser to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Dr. Gbolade Osinowo; Pa Elias Folorunso, Hon. Yemi Adefulu, Chief Bisi Rodipe, Mr. Lawal Idris, Chief Jare Dada, Elder Olatunji, and Alhaji Rafiu Sonuga,
In the words of the former Special Adviser, Dr. Osinowo, the motive behind the visit was to seek the support of Ogun West leaders for the consensus candidate of Ijebu/Remo, Otunba Bimbo Ashiru for the governorship race in 2019.
According to Osinowo, the people of Ogun East Senatorial District have always been a natural ally of Ogun West in producing the state governor, but sheer providence has determined otherwise.
The political scenarios in 2011 and 2015, he said, were ready testimonies of the Ijebu and Remo’s belief in equity but aborted by the intransigence of the Yewa people to arrive at a consensus candidate.
In response, Senator Kola Bajomo, thanking the team for the visit stressed that Ogun West will always accord each candidate warm reception as demonstrated by the people of Ogun East when Ogun West sought their support.
Also, Alhaji (Dr) Olusesi, while making his remarks, said the voting strength of the people of Ogun East can not be jettisoned as it stands as a veritable weapon that can come to play in winning election.
Rounding off, the Ogun West Senatorial District Chairman, Alhaji Fadairo in his speech canvassed for peace and harmony between the two Senatorial districts.

Adejobi, Hon Elegbede, Pastor Ade Babayemi, Hon (Mrs) Akale, Alhaji Ajibabi, Alhaji Dele Rufai, Chief Edunjobi, Alhaji Odebiyi, Mrs Victoria Ogunpolu, Alhaji Ajibola Fatai, Hon Michael Adeleke, Mr. Sofolahan Enitan, Aare T.
