A former commissioner for special duties in Ogun State, Chief Kola Sorinola, has predicted that the 2015 general election will be a straight contest between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Labour Party (LP) in the state.
Sorinola hinged his prediction on the fact that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as presently constituted in the state ranked a distant third position.
Sorinola made the prediction when he accompanied a senatorial aspirant in Ogun Centre Senatorial District on the platform of the LP, Owolabi Kola-Balogun, during a visit to Obafemi/Owode Local Government Area.
In a statement, signed by the Media Consultant to Kola-Balogun campaign organisation, Prince Ade Adefulu, Sorinola said the indices and survey on the forthcoming election gave a lot of hope to the LP in Ogun State. He reasoned that the chances were buoyed by the fact that Ogun people had become wiser due to the pains inflicted on them by the Amosun administration.
Specifically, Sorinola, who is an LP leader, stressed that Ogun people were living on empty stomach, unlike during the Daniel administration when the people were empowered.
On Kola-Balogun’s aspiration, he described him as a worthy young man, who would not disappoint them in view of his pedigree as a credible and upright politician.
His views were corroborated by an LP chieftain and former chairman of Obafemi/Owode local government, Akeem Adesina, who lamented the over concentration of projects in major towns by the APC adminitaration to the detriment of the rural communities.
In his remarks, Kola-Balogun assured the people that he would change the face of representation in the Senate.
