JEGEDE REASSURES THAT THE IDANRE LANDS WILL NOT BE THREATENED UNDER HIS GOVERNORSHIP
Jegede gave the assurance yesterday at the palaces of the monarch of Alade-Idanre, the Alade Okin, Oba Olusegun Akinbola, and Idanre, the Owa, Oba Federick Aroloye, when he visited the communities on campaign tours.
Speaking at the Owa’s palace, Jegede said: “I am a senior advocate. I am not after your lands; please ignore all these concocted stories from our opponents who are feeling threatened about your decision to vote for PDP on Saturday’s election.
“Yes, I am from Akure, but I have lived all my life enjoying the good relationship between Idanre and Akure and we should not allow these detractors to create disaffection between us in the name of politics.
“I am not a land grabber and I am not pedestrian in thinking, by the grace of God,” he assured.
He also assured thousands of his supporters who trooped out to receive him despite a downpour, that he would do his best to alleviate the sufferings of the masses.
Jegede promised to put in place basic amenities currently lacking in Idanre and its environs.
These amenities, he said, include road, light, water, affordable healthcare, and quality and bearable educational fee regime.
In their separate pleas, the royal fathers urged the candidate to assist the communities in Idanre kingdom by fixing their deplorable roads, especially the road linking Idanre with Ofosu.
They also sought rural electrification projects, lamenting that people in the area largely lived in the dark.
