The Senator representing Ondo Central Senatorial District and a member of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator Tayo Alasoadura has said that he would beat former Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko to return to the red chamber in 2019.
Alasoadura, who is the flag bearer of the party in the Ondo Central Senatorial election, stated this at the launching of his campaign team in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
He said he already knew that Mimiko was beating around the bush when he announced he was going to contest for presidency, before quitting the ambition for a senatorial ticket under the Zenith Labour Party(ZLP).
Speaking at a political rally organised for him by a person of like mind in Akure to kick start his campaign and to send signals to his opponents that the race to the red chamber had begun.
Alasoadura said he believed he had achieved a lot as a representative of the people in the red chamber of the National Assembly than any other senator who had represented before him.
“For example, people at the market yesterday saw the way market women were happy for provision of solar electricity so that they won’t only be selling in the day, but also in the night.
“People had fire incidents at different spots, I came to their aid, that is what you call representation, in the past,there was nothing like that, nobody was coming home, even to know the problem of their people, but in my own little way, I have been able to do a lot,” he said.
The senator said he also facilitated the rail lines that was going to pass through Ondo State to pass through Akure, which is the state capital.
He the urged electorates to vote him and his party in the forthcoming general elections, adding that voting him for the second time he would consolidate on his achievements and to continue the good representation he started.
Also speaking with newsmen, Commissioner for Youth Development and Sports, Saka Yusuf-Ogunleye said the rally was not APC rally or Alasoadura’s but neighborhood to neighborhood campaign team.
Yusuf-Ogunleye noted that the senator being an indigene of Akure, deserves the support of his immediate constituents, especially Akure North.
The commissioner said the campaign was to mobilise support for Alasoadura, to compliment the efforts of the party to win all available tickets for APC.
In the same vein, Sunday Olajide, Member representing Akure constituency II at the Ondo State House of Assembly said he was happy with the support people gave the senator.
He noted that the party will sweep all the available posts in the 2019 election.
