Ogun African Democratic Congress (ADC) gubernatorial candidate, Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka (GNI) has charged members of the party not to be worried over the loss of last Saturday’s National Assembly election.
Instead, he advised the supporters of the party to be focused on how to secure victory in the gubernatorial election scheduled for March 9.
Isiaka said this in a press statement issue from the office of Gboyega Nasir Isiaka Campaign Organization (GNICO) on Tuesday.
“I want to thank all faithful of the African Democratic Congress and every citizen of the state that put in their votes for our candidates. I am of the firm believe that this exercise marked a paradigm shift in the political history of Ogun State; as we effectively birthed a third force built on sound democratic credentials and peoples power.
“The results notwithstanding, we must appreciate ourselves for the effort and courage to go the other way. We must also appreciate the good people of Ogun State for every single vote the ADC got in the last Hours of the election. The acceptance and good faith shown us have been most endearing.
“However, the battle continues and our chances remain very bright. As party members, we must not be despondent or discouraged at the final results of the National Assembly elections.
“The Gubernatorial and State Houses of Assembly election on March 9th 2019 will be a watershed in Ogun State. That day represents another opportunity for the will of the masses to prevail. It is a stand-alone election that will be determined purely by the votes of Ogun electorate.
“I am very positive that no two elections are the same. The fundamentals and dynamics of two Saturday’s time will confound the critics and pundits. We have traversed the length and breadth of Ogun State. The people have made up their minds to give us the winning votes; and that must be our abiding motivation.
“I implore every patriotic member of the ADC to look ahead with optimism and be confident of victory on March 9th, 2019. To this effect, the next ten days becomes critical. We must double all efforts in our respective locations and polling booths; ensuring that we work on further selling the ideals of our party and forging strategic alliances.
“Like one of my favourite quote says, “Victory is always possible for he who refuses to stop fighting”. We shall not rest until victory is delivered and I believe that standing together, the ADC will win the Gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections.
“To the people of Ogun State, I sincerely thank you all for the votes. We are committed to the promises made all through the electioneering period and on this strength, we trust that you will stand firm by our electoral covenant by voting for me and all other ADC candidates in the next election.”
