He reminded them that the real dividends of democracy were evident for them to see, from the local council headquarters in Omo-Aran to the hinterlands.

Hon. Tinuola said, "From Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRasaq, Senator Lola Ashiru to Hon. Ajulo Opin and the fresh candidate to the house of assembly, Hon. Shola Odetundun, they have all performed credibly well even before the election season. There is no reason why they should be a difficult sale.

"Are we not all witnesses to over 7 roads that Senator Ashiru constructed from scratch, or the countless transformers he delivered to lots of communities when they needed them the most? Four vocational centres have been built by him already in just 3 years. Ero Omo Cultural tourism centre is also there for our pleasure and that of visitors. 

"Our people know what the norm was in the gloomy past compared to the progress we are witnessing today. Reminding them of that makes the task an easy and enjoyable one." he added.

Also in his remarks at the event, Dr Toba Oloyede who was represented by the DG DTO Vanguard, Habeeb Salawudeen described the composition of the campaign vanguard as first of its kind in the history of the party in Kwara state, an innovative and selfless effort that would ring in the hearts of the constituents for a long time.

He said this will set the tone for the planned massive awareness and aggressive grassroots engagement on the readiness of the party to ultimately deliver the goods for the people of Kwara.

He expressed confidence in the capacity of the membership of the DTO Vanguard to deliver on the mandate of winning convincing majority votes in the 2023 general elections for Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president and Malam AbdulRahman AbdulRasaq reelection as governor of Kwara State along with other candidates vying for public office under the APC banner in the constituency.

"The 158 personalities chosen for this task were carefully recommended from the 158 polling units scattered all around Irepodun LGA, their capacity to deliver results has been proven over time, they know the people and the people know them." Salawudeen said.

Chants of 'Omo mekunnu' chorused the large ground at intervals in admiration of Dr Toba Oloyede (DTO), who many of the locals attested to his different interventions geared towards empowering and uplifting the mass of the people.

The launch of the DTO Vanguard in Irepodun LGA comes barely a fortnight after same was witnessed in Isin LGA, with the Oke-Ero and Ekiti LGAs launches set to hold soon.
