Afenifere’s Secretary-General declares interest in Ondo governorship polls



With the race for the governorship election in Ondo State gathering momentum, the Secretary-General of the pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Sola Ebiseni, has declared intentions to vie for the state’s top job.


According to Ebiseni, with his orientation and knowledge of the state, he remains the best to lead the state.


While describing the forthcoming November 16, 2024, as a crucial moment for the state, the Afenifere’s scribe emphasised that all previous governors of the state were nurtured and influenced by the principles of Awolowo.


While speaking with journalists, the lawyer and former commissioner in the state maintained that understanding the people and the territory was essential for the state’s development.


Ebiseni called for the urgent need to diversify the state’s economy from excessive dependence on federal allocation by the state, stressing that it was the only path for the state to be free from economic bondage.


“If you follow the trajectory of governance from the Ajasin era, our state has had the rare privilege of being governed by governors who are not only intellectually suave, grounded in their chosen careers, thoroughly bred, and groomed in the ideology of the Awolowo school of thought.


“The development of our state also requires being fully acquainted with the territory and the people. Such knowledge affords the new manager, the opportunity to determine the location of resources, create wealth therefrom, and fairly allocate them without undue concentration in one or a few places.”
