A traditional ruler in Ekiti State, Oba Aderemi Obaleye, the Olojudo of Ido Ile Ekiti, has endorsed Lere Olayinka as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ekiti Central Federal Constituency 2 for the forthcoming House of Representatives election.
The respected traditional ruler described the PDP candidate as “a perfect fit, who will give the constituency the needed representation.”
Speaking when Olayinka paid him a courtesy visit in his palace, Oba Obaleye further described the PDP candidate as ” capable hand and result-oriented.”
He further said: “I know Lere more than you have come here to tell me. “If you give him an assignment, you have given such assignment to someone that can deliver.
“Lere Olayinka is a capable hand. He is bold and his boldness is not with pride. He is very very pushful and results oriented. Send him to anywhere, you know that you have sent someone that will bring results.
“In this constituency, I can say it anywhere that, that Lere, let’s consider him because I believe he has the capacity to deliver.”
The Olojudo of Ido Ile was also full of praises for the incumbent House of Representatives member, representing the Constituency, Honourable Wumi Ogunlola.
Oba Obaleye said: “To be candid, someone mentioned that woman, Wumi Ogunlola. I thought she would be allowed to go for a second term, because if someone has done well, we should say it.
“Now that Wumi Ogunlola was not allowed to go for a second term, I think Lere will be a good replacement.”
The traditional ruler prayed for the success of Olayinka’s aspiration. “By the grace of God, whatever lies within my power, I will do because I am confident that wherever Lere is, I will be ably represented.
“Wherever he is, I am not afraid. I have no fear concerning the interest of Ido Ile,” the Ekiti traditional ruler further said.
