As the gubernatorial election in Ondo State draws closer, Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs Titi Adeyemi has commenced a strategic mobilization of women in Akoko South East Local government.
To this end, she held series of meetings with the local government women leaders in the local government headquarters, Isua-Akoko to strategise on winning the forthcoming election for the All Progressive Congress party’s candidate.
Mrs Adeyemi canvassed for the support of the women, noting that women were home builders and urged them to apply that feature to build the party in their wards.
The local government women leader, Chief Mrs Obafemi appreciated Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, for the much inclusion of women in his administration, while highlighting some changes this administration had brought to their local government.
At the second meeting, which was with the former local government and the ward women leaders, some of them expressed their grievances and lamented that they had been neglected by the party since they left office.
The Commissioner, however, assured them of a new beginning during the second tenure of Governor Akeredolu, and they unanimously agreed to work with her with full support.
At the final meeting with the market women, they appreciated her with different kind of prayers due to the recognition they said she had accorded them.
The Iyaloja of Akoko South East, Chief Mrs Edward responded on their behalf and pledged their support for her come October 10.
