Chief John Odigie Oyegun
Chief Oyegun had left in the trails of his esteemed career a string of empowered individuals, an array of distinguished personalities and a wide dragnet of political followership who testifies of his outstanding pact with decency and truth wherever it matters most. Upholding the true tenets of democracy where the life and need of the lowest of the masses is touched and influenced positively is always what this seasoned elder stateman stands for.
It is of little wonder he describes the unfolding events as primitive where individuals tend to want to force their personal interests and desires on the generality of Edolites, forcing the fortunes of an excellent and working government into a possible oblivion and the general suppression of good governance, common decency, principled leadership, and protection and upholding of democratic rights.
Chief Oyegun has done so much to uplift the betterment of Edo state with his personal and collective action and experience while holding sway to public life in the history of the state. It behoves on Edo citizens to look at the reflection of his life and democratic principles as compared to certain others grandishingabout in the state and claiming to know it all, and use such appraisal to heed reason and collectively walk in the direction of same.
It would be common sense for community leaders, youth groups, women organizations, religious bodies and the wholestate to listen to the words of wisdom from a true democrat and living legend of politics in Edo state and come out in one accord, massively and deployin
The fact that a LEGEND like Chief Oyegun has spoken, we expect a clear reflection of the people’s choice in the election on Saturday with the freewill and rights of the good people of Edo state showcased in the outcome, where a government for the people and by the people will be allowed to serve.
