Traditional rulers in Ekiti State have passed a vote of confidence in the House of Representatives member representing Ikole/Oye Federal Constituency, Hon Kehinde Agboola, in view of his interest in the development of the area and better lives for his constituents.
About Thirty-nine traditional rulers n the Ikole and Oye council areas of the state, who said that Agboola stood out among other elected representatives from the federal constituency and indeed Ekiti North Senatorial District in the area of contribution to development, charged all elected officials from the area to emulate him.
They spoke at Odo Oro Ekiti in Ekiti State during the third edition of Agboola’s yearly empowerment programme for his constituents in Oye and Ikole council areas of the state.
The Attah of Ayede Ekiti, Oba Orisagbemi, who said only the impact of Agboola was felt in the area among his peers, said it was not late yet for other elected representatives from Ikole/Oye Federal Constituency and Ekiti North Senatorial District to take a cue from the selfless service of the lawmaker to humanity.
Oba Orisagbemi, who canvassed support and vote for Agboola in the 2019 Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Assembly primaries and election, also appealed to the state government to up the ante in the development of Ekiti North Senatorial District.
Chairman, Ekiti State Council of Obas, who is the Oloye of Oye Ekiti, Oba Oluwole Ademolaju, commended Agboola for his unparalleled representation and canvassed support for the governorship ambition of the state deputy governor, Prof Kolapo Olusola, “having proved himself worthy of the office of Governor and in view of his laudable attributes”.
In his address on the occasion, the deputy governor, who is PDP preferred aspirant for 2018 Ekiti governorship election, described Agboola as a true follower of Governor Ayodele Fayose and following his footsteps in delivery of democracy dividends to the people and prioritising the constituents’ welfare needs.
