Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwoland, has promised to work for the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the ongoing Osun State Governorship election.
Oluwo stated this on Saturday after casting his vote at Unit 1 Ward 2, in Iwo town Iwo Local Government.
The monarch reiterated his commitment to delivering over 90,000 votes for the APC governorship candidate, Alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola.
Earlier reports suggested the Traditional ruler promised to deliver for the ruling party and its candidate in the ongoing governorship election in Osun.
The Oluwo, who noted that kings should be political, said he canvassed votes for incumbent because of his prompt payment of salaries.
In his words:
“I am confident of delivering 90,000 votes. It is not easy for the governor to move from the status quo and do what is right. He has been paying full salary. Osun is a civil servant state and the people depend on salaries.
“He has been paying debt inherited and didn’t use the money for frivolities. I have told my people to vote for the APC and they will vote for APC. The governor is doing a great job. I believe the person doing a great job should continue. I want all persons to vote peacefully.”
The monarch also declared that vote buying can not stop in the Nigerian democracy with the way politicians run the system.
The monarch opined that the menace could not stop until the government do the needful and allowed the people to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
“Vote buying is a challenge to democracy. The populace does not have hope. They are getting what they can get. It is a bad situation. We do not know when to get out of it. The new breeds of politicians will help us to get out of it but people are hungry. They need food. Vote buying cannot stop now until we see real dividends of democracy
“My domain is peaceful. I have told them nobody should stay home. They should show their voting strength. We want to see our strength. Nobody should stay home and watch television,” he said.
