Olaniyan said the visit and pledge of loyalty have put the speculations and rumours that he’s not relevant at home to an end.

Meanwhile, Alwajud while reacting to the declaration of support for the Deputy Governor said the Ifelodun Omo Igboho executives acted on their own, emphasising that sons and daughters of the town will support Governor ‘Seyi Makinde.

He said this is on Saturday, in a telephone conversation with newsmen.

He added that all political parties have candidates, members and chieftains in Igboho. He berated the leadership of the association for identifying with the Deputy Governor and APC, while ignoring others.

He urged the leadership of the association to be apolitical for the interest of the town and its sons and daughters.

He said: “What the national leadership of Ifelodun Omo Igboho said is not the true stand of all sons and daughters. They acted on their own. Governor ‘Seyi Makinde will win in Oorelope Local Government and win Oyo governorship election in 2023.

“All political parties have candidates, members and chieftains in Igboho. I wonder why the national leadership of Ifelodun Omo Igboho will identify with one person and one political party. The association should stop being political for the interest of sons and daughters of Igboho and the development of the town”, he added.
