A Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ifedore local government area of Ondo State, Mrs Adeyefa Oyinkansola-Williams, has assured womenfolk in the state of better deals and government patronage during the second tenure of Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu starting Feb. 24, 2021.
Oyinkansola-Williams made this known on Friday in a congratulating message to Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu made available to newsmen in Akure, the state capital.
She noted that more than 65 per cent of women across the 18 local government areas in the state contributed to the just concluded election victory of Akeredolu.
The APC chieftain rejoiced with the governor on his victory at the polls on Oct. 10, and urged him to continue with his infrastructure development in the state.
Oyinkansola-Williams urged the winner to be magnanimous in victory by embracing and working with every sector and all manner of people in the state in order to achieve better results in the next four years.
According to her, I need to use this medium on occasion of celebration of your victory at the polls to seek your express approval for a 40 per cent allocation reserved for women in your next cabinet.
She it would serve “as a pay back to the unalloyed support and massive votes contributed to your victory by women in the state”.
“We (women) promise to keep supporting and standing solidly behind your administration.
“We hope and believe you will continue to carry us along and increase our participation in government activities and programmes to ensure you succeed even much more than you did in the first term.
“I join the rest of womenfolk in the state to congratulate you and Mrs Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu on this well deserved victory at the polls.
“We wish you more wisdom, understanding and good health to pilot the affairs of our Sunshine State to an enviable height for the next four years.”
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Mrs Oyinkansola-Williams served as secretary of Women Mobilisation Committee of Akeredolu/Aiyedatiwa Campaign Council in the just concluded governorship election in the state.
