National Conference: Ogun West Decries Exclusion

Senator Ibikunle Amosun

By Sheriff Balogun and Aisha Suleiman

The Awori people in Ogun West senatorial district have appealed to the state Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, to create more room for their full representation in the National Conference expected to take off today. 

This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Coordinator, Awori Solidarity Movement, Mr. Kayode Odunsi, saying with a population of about one million out of 3,728.098 in Ogun State, Awori people deserve better representation.

He justified calls for more representation in the National Conference, noting that out of the 20 local government areas in the state, Ogun East has nine local government areas; Ogun Central has six while Ogun West has five local government areas.

He added that the total state constituency “is 26. Ogun East has 10, Ogun Central has eight while Ogun West has eight,” noting that the exclusion of the Awori people “is no more than a systematic marginalisation occasioned by the balkanization of the people.”

He said the Awori People hoped the Yoruba Agenda “to the conference would be addressed as part of the delegation. The Awori people in the state want to associate fully with the transformation agenda of the state government.

“We congratulate the governor particularly for your wisdom, foresight and courage in convoking the much desired National Conference which the majority of the people of this great Nation have now come to support and embrace,” Odunsi said.
