National Conference: Pastor Bakare, Fola Adeola make list of Ogun delegates

According to the governor, South West states appointed Senator Iyabo Anisulowo to represent the region’s senators, while the Presidency appointed Chief Olanihun Ajayi as one of the 37 elder statesmen.

Amosun explained that the delegates were appointed from the three senatorial districts of the state.

He said that the delegates, who would be led by Durojaiye, would among others focused on decentralisation of police, devolution of power and true fiscal federalism at the conference.

Speaking on behalf of the delegates, Ajayi assured that they would ensure that the interests of the people of Ogun State were protected.

He observed a mistake on the way and manner the ethnic groups in the country were being run, saying the issue will be discussed at the dialogue.

“The mistake has been with us since 1914 and that is why we have not met up with some of the countries with whom we gained independence in 1960,” he said.

“We, however, hope that through the spirit of give and take, we will be able to arrive at solutions that will bring peace and progress to the country.”
