ASPIRANT LAMENTS EXECUTIVE, LEGISLATIVE RIFT IN OGUN
A governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State, Dr. Femi Majekodunmi, has expressed concern over the rift between the executive and legislature in the state.
Majekodunmi, in an interview with our correspondent in Abeokuta, on Monday, said the N100bn bond being sourced by the state government ought not have led to any rift.
He said, 'The division between the executive and the legislature in the state has compounded the bond issue. Though I believe that the crisis will soon be resolved. What I think the House (of Assembly) should do is to ensure that the bond follows the due process.
'The disagreement between the two should not become the yardstick for the acceptance or rejection of the bond. Rather, it should be based on what the projects are meant to achieve and their viability.'
The aspirant expressed confidence that he would clinch the state PDP governorship ticket, adding that he was the 'only active contender on the campaign field.'
Majekodunmi, a medical practitioner, said he had campaigned in all the 20 local government areas in the state and met the stakeholders.
He said, 'I have said this several times; I'm the only contender on the field. Can you see anyone of them consulting with major stakeholders in the party in the state? I have been to every corner and I'm enjoying tremendous goodwill of the people.
'Recently, my people in Abeokuta South held a meeting to throw their weight behind my candidature. All the party leaders and current political office holders in the state were in attendance. To people who are conversant with the politics of Ogun State, Abeokuta South is a very important local government, if not the most important.'
