A political associate of Engineer Kayode Ojo,Niyi Adedipe (alias Apase Oodua), has distributed free fuel to hundreds of commercial motorcyclists(popularly known as Okada riders) in Ado-Ekiti.
Engineer Ojo, a second runner up in the 2018 governorship primaries in Ekiti has also indicated interest to renewed his ambition ahead of the 2022 Governorship Election in Ekiti.
Speaking with newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, Adedipe disclosed that the intervention was part of the activities lined up for his Birthday celebrations.
No fewer than 250 cyclists were offered free fuel and branded face caps with the inscription “I stand With Kayode Ojo.
Adedipe, who is the Ekiti State Coordinator of the Yoruba socio-political group christened, Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), said the gesture was to appreciate his principal and to encourage him to pursue his political ambition to a logical conclusion.
He acknowledged that Ojo had not reneged on his social intervention programme since he joined the race in 2018.
“It is on record that Ojo had remained consistent with the people. That shows that he is not a desperate politician,” he said.
Aside from the Okada riders, Adedipe hinted that hundreds of less privileged persons would be given food items in order to identify with them.
The APC man who clarified that Ojo was not in the know of the programme, however, said that it was through a spirited effort to support his(Ojo) political aspiration.
