Persons With Disabilities in Osun State have thrown their weight behind the reelection of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress and incumbent governor, Gboyega Oyetola.
Oyetola faces an uphill task of defeating the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ademola Adeleke, in his quest to return for a second term in office on Saturday.
A number of the PDP big wigs including the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, had on Thursday, stormed the state, where they charged voters to vote for Adeleke and wait to monitor their votes on Saturday.
In a statement issued on Friday, the APC National Leader of Persons Living with Disabilities, Tolu Bankole, disclosed that Oyetola had earned the admiration and trust of the PWDs community due to his people-oriented programmes and initiatives since 2018.
Bankole stated that the decision to endorse the governor was carefully taken after extensive deliberations among the various PWDs clusters in the party.
He said, “Among the 15 candidates on the ballot in this election, he is the only one that can defend our interest. His various empowerment initiatives ranging from the health insurance scheme; welfare and and employment programs have endeared us the PWDs.
