The former National President of Okun Students, Comrade Ajagun Opeyemi Samuel has commended the Senator representing Kogi West Dino Melaye and Barrister Babatunde Irukera for having the confidence to contest for the office of the Governor, Kogi State.

Ajagun, in a press statement, described the duo of Melaye and Irukera as the pride of Okun land and patriotic Kogi state developers. He bemoaned the attitude of political actors, particularly delegates, from the area.

He stated that Okuns are not yet conscious of their main problems.

Commending Irukera and Melaye, he noted that the two illustrious sons have demonstrated total commitment, love and patriotism to the course of Okun land and Kogi state in general, having listened to the calls of the people by putting themselves forward to serve the entire people of Kogi State.

Ajagun noted that since the creation of Kogi State in 1991, no Okun person have had the opportunity to ascend to the number one position in the state.

He encouraged and charged the leaders across Okun land to keep fighting for the interest of Okun people, observing that if an Okun man clinch the seat of Governor of the state, visible developments will feature in the district.

Ajagun said that Barrister Irukera, the Director General of Federal Competition, Consumer Protection Council and Senator representing Kogi West, Senator Dino Melaye have done their best in the just concluded party primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

While observing the series of electoral malpractices that characterized both party’s primaries, Ajagun criticized some delegates from Okun land for not supporting their own brothers during the process.

He noted that Barrister Irukera of the All Progressives Congress who came second would have floored the incumbent governor of the state to emerge the winner of the primaries if all the delegates from the party across Okun land had not traded the prosperity prospect of Okun land for a dime of lucre.

In an aggressive manner, Ajagun berated the delegates from Okun land across the two main political parties for compromising and betraying the course of their land. He argued that Okun people would have used the opportunity of the incompetency of the incumbent governor to emerge as the governor of the state.

He urged all sons and daughters of Okun land to reflect back on the pains and gains since the creation of the state, saying that Okun people are gradually turning to be the third class citizens of the state.

However, Ajagun eulogized those who has continued to support the emancipation of Okun people from political segregation.
