We, thereby urge our members to start working towards the forth-coming local government election, coming up on Saturday, July 24, 2021, to ensure our party’s victory”
“Though there was misunderstanding and discordant on the choice of the candidate, however, we stand by the party’s decision.
“We believe this is a time to work together, so that we can achieve success at the coming poll.
He appealed to leaders and elders to immediately extend their hands of fellowship, brotherhood and comradeship to all the chairmanship aspirants, who expressed their intent by the collection of expression of Interest forms of the party.
“This is necessary because the interest of the party should and is paramount at all times and as such, we cannot afford to be divided now, especially, as we look forward to the commemoration of the party’s last victory, as OUR 4 + 4 AGENDA BECOMES NON-NEGOTIABLE for PRINCE (DR.) DAPO ABIODUN, MFR”

“In education, he has rehabilitated quite a good number of schools throughout the twenty (20) Local Government in the State. Similarly, countless and significant immeasurable kilometers of roads have been completed and commissioned in all the three senatorial districts in the state. As a pointer, just three days ago, precisely on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, the governor commissioned the Lisabi Elite Road. This is a welcome development, as it will enhance the economic growth in the area”
“In the health sector, His Excellency, Prince (Dr.) Dapo Abiodun MFR, has upgraded almost all our primary health facilities in the state to world class standard. This will make our people to attend health centres, which is the primary and closest to the people”

This, we believe can only be addressed by the No 1 Leader of this great party – His Excellency, Prince (Dr.) Dapo Abiodun MFR”
“On this note, I hereby consolidate all the 10 united chairmanship aspirants and our supporters and hereby move to our new agenda tagged : DAPO ABIODUN CONTINUITY AGENDA (DACA)”
