By: Oluwatosin Adesola

Prof. Dayo Faduyile, a famous and reputable aspirant under the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ondo State, visited leaders and members of the APC at Ile-Oluji/Oke Igbo and Irele Local Governments respectively on Wednesday, 10th June, 2020 to seek their supports in the forthcoming APC Primary Election in the state comes 20th July, 2020.

While addressing the leaders, Prof. Faduyile lamented the total marginalisation and neglect of Ondo South Senatorial District by the present administration led by Akeredolu administration in the state.

He further noted that genuine members of the Progressives who never jumped, whose body and soul have been addicted to the fold of the Progressives right from the days of AC to ACN and finally to APC have been constantly short changed, marginalised and abandoned so soon,” Faduyile observed.

Moreover, Faduyile while speaking acknowledged Elder Fapohunda, the indisputable strong man of Ile-Oluji/Oke Igbo politics for giving them a warm reception and acceptance at his Oduduwa residence in Oke Igbo.

”There is no better time than now to consider a reliable and reputable aspirant which I represent. We have seen how far ‘Money Politics’ can take us in Ondo State. This time around, the people must be proactive and sensible with the kind of aspirant they will choose to lead them in the next four years. If we have missed it in past, this time around, we must get right”.

“If we don’t know where we are coming from, we must know where we are going”.
We must also learnt from our past experiences”.

“When late Governor Agagu was in power, majority of us were in the opposition – AC but we never mind the suffering we were passing through yet we were determined and focus believing that one day God would show up which He eventually did”.

“In the same vein when Governor Mimiko came to power, we patiently bore the burden of being in the opposition but quite unfortunate today that our own party, APC came to power in Ondo State by the grace of God and turned to be our tormentor”. Faduyile lamented.

He finally urged the people to shun ‘Money Politics’ and imbibe quality representation which the people known him for. He further advised them to resist and reject this present government of ugly and poor performance especially to the people of the south in the state. He then appealed to the APC leaders to buy into the PDF dream so that they can collectively take the socio economic of the sunshine state to her crescendo.


The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ondo State has endorsed the candidature of Prof. Dayo Faduyile ahead of the APC primary on 20th July, 2020.

The APC faithfuls across the six local government areas in the south confirmed that the Imperial Prince of Abodi of Ikale land who is also a Professor of Pathology at Lagos State University (LUTH), has verifiable leadership antecedents with unquestionable character. This track record has earned him the total confidence of the people while promising him undiluted supports of the majority at the APC Primary poll comes July 20.

Faduyile and his team had visited party leaders and APC members in the state to seek their supports ahead of APC Primary Election. Amongst other places visited were: Igbotu in Ese-Odo, Ilaje and Odigbo local governments – all in Ondo southern senatorial district. Others were: Ondo west and East local governments – Central Senatorial District.

While addressing the gathering, Prof. Faduyile reiterated that his ambition to become Governor of Ondo State is not for fun but rather to serve the people with all humility and sincerity of purpose and as well protect the interest of the good people of Ondo State.

He noted that his antecedent and performance as NMA Secretary in Ondo State some years back made Ondo state Medical Doctors to become the best paid medical personnel throughout the South West, stressing that he is never a stranger in Ondo State politics and that he can be best described as a canvasser for good welfare package. Faduyile opined.

He appreciated and thanked all the Coordinators across all the 3009 units, 203 Wards and 18 local government areas. He also commended their loyalty and commitment so far.

The immediate past President of Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) said PDF has a 7-point agenda which cut across Agriculture, Health, Renewable energy, Manpower development, education, improved cooperative society, community development and so on.

On the mode of primary, he charged the people not to be bothered. He said the most important thing is that the voters should make up their minds on whom to lead them in the next four years.

He finally assured them of all inclusive government which can only take Ondo state to her enviable crescendo.
