A former Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Ogun State governorship candidate of Action Democratic Party, Dimeji Bankole, has expressed the confidence that the party will win the governorship seat in the state in 2019.
He said this on Monday when he was formally unveiled by the state party chairman, Chief Wale Egunleti, to other party members and supporters at the party secretariat, Onikolobo, Abeokuta.
He said the party was well structured and would displace the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state in the coming general elections.
Bankole who thanked the party for being elected as the governorship candidate in the state promised that he would not waste the ticket.
He said, “I am exceedingly happy to be nominated as our party’s governorship candidate.
“I am grateful to this massive structure you have built in the last six years, especially in the last two years.
“I promise that I will not, in any capacity, play with the ticket that you have given.
“I assure you that the economic complexities of Ogun State are not difficult. And the motor of our party ‘Mass Employment’ is something that we will follow.”
The state chairman of the party, Chief Wale Egunleti, said the journey had been tough, but the party had been strengthened by the resolve to abide by democratic principles and distinguish itself from those who engaged in acts which were undemocratic.
