Hope rises for Osun with Corporate Political Gladiator

Ogunbiyi, who was previously the main candidate for governor of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), initially withdrew from the race in February. In March, he was officially declared a candidate for governor of the Political Party of the Accord.
Expressing his stubborn determination to shoot for the governorship of Osun State, regardless of how he had been treated “unfairly and unfairly”, Ogunbiyi explained that he had been inspired by his innermost beliefs and the bugle call of all who wish well for the state.
He said, “I step forward, once again, for this cause: to see Osun State fulfill its manifest destiny; become a beacon and a source of pride for the people; and of this nation, with the echoes of its unprecedented accelerated development ricocheting across Africa and the world; and in generations to come. Let’s all say unequivocally no to silver dealers.
In the past, politicians discreetly greased their palms, today they proudly shout from the rooftops that their main objective in gaining power is to dollarize the political system.
An example of this is a statement made at the political rally by the PDP gubernatorial aspirant in Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke. In a video that is currently making the rounds on social media, Adeleke had pledged to release not only naira but also dollars, pounds and euros to Osun residents.
He said, “My people from Osun, you decide. It’s not by force, not by tricks, if it’s money, I brought money and not just naira but dollars, pounds and euros. This time it’s fire for fire for Osun’s gubernatorial election.
Essentially, the gubernatorial contender was telling potential voters that they should not consider his quality of leadership but rather the heaviness of his pocket. It became clear to everyone that the governance of the state required new thinking.
“Osun State needs someone with ideas and innovation to improve the welfare of the people and the state’s internally generated revenue,” said Elder Segun Akinwusi, elder Osun State Service Chief.
“Ogunbiyi is someone I know who can make a difference in Osun, and I see him as someone Osun State should be chasing after. He doesn’t come to make money like others, c “He’s a philanthropist. He’s coming to make a name for himself and make a difference in people’s lives,” HOS added.
A senior dignitary who pleaded anonymity said, “Ogunbiyi will use his training and exposure to bring the public and private sectors together in a less bureaucratic way to develop Osun State and improve the fate of the people. If you look at the urban-rural migration in the state, the guy has the exposure, the experience, and the expertise to stop it, thanks to the agro-allied revolution he’s already making.
Osun State, a land endowed with enormous agricultural and mineral resources, had slowly gone from being recognized for its historical significance to a state where political aides and appointees are committing despicable acts of part of the world. to another.
It should be recalled that in February, media reports clearly showed how armed men attacked the campaign office of Rauf Aregbesola, interior minister and former governor of Osun. In March, the Osun state government alleged that some people had stored documents bearing the insignia of the All Progressives Congress (APC), its government and that of its gubernatorial candidate, Adegboyega Oyetola, to distribute to political thugs and hoodlums to foment unrest during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governor’s Primary Election scheduled for Tuesday, March 8, 2022.

Mutual Benefits Assurance, a conglomerate of nine companies covering insurance, real estate, oil and gas, manufacturing, agriculture and finance, was started by Ogunbiyi in 1995.
