The national and state assembly candidates of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Osun state would hold a mega rally for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Candidate (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The candidates said they have engaged in house-to-house campaigns to canvass votes for APC candidate who they described as a harbinger of hope for Nigerians.
The four national assembly candidates of the NNPP dumped their presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso in September and declared support for Tinubu.
They blamed the national leadership and the inability of the party stakeholders to work by the principle of justice, law, and the undemocratic running of the party.
Speaking on behalf of the party’s House of Assembly candidates in Osogbo, Monday, Alhaji Afolabi Abayomi said they have since realized that the party’s present structure in Osun state lacks the vision of a New Nigeria aspires by citizens.
Afolabi said no preparation whatsoever in selling their presidential candidate, national assembly, and the house of assembly candidates to the people of Osun less than two months before the commencement of the general elections.
According to him, during their house-to-house campaign, it was discovered that Osun people are so determined to have Asiwaju Tinubu as their president and canvassing for any other candidates may be an effort in futility, hence, their decision to stick to Tinubu.
Afolabi said, in collaboration with other National Assembly candidates who earlier dumped Kwankwaso, nine houses of assembly candidates are set to organize a mega rally for Tinubu where masses of Osun would be convinced on why they should support APC candidates.
Both the NASS and state assembly candidates eulogized the Secretary, Tinubu/Shetima Presidential Campaign Council, James Faleke, for always giving them listening ears and for embracing them having discovered their ability to deliver Osun for Tinubu.
Some of these House of Assembly candidates include Afolabi Muideen Abayomi (Ifelodun), Opeyemi Amoo (Ife North), Babalola Timothy (Ila), Adelowokan Festus (Ilesha West), Ibrahim Adebisi (Ilesha East), Owoduni Emmanuel (Atakumosa East/west), Adekehinde Omolola (Oriade) and Odeyemi Tumininu ( Obokun).
