With immense gratitude to Almighty Allah for His grace, we at the Tijani Campaign Organization, rejoice with our principal, Hon. Tijani Ismail Kayode on his victory today at the High Court, where his victory during the APC primaries was upheld. We equally celebrate our irrepressible elders, incorrigible stakeholders and genuine supporters that endured the journey with us until this true mandate of the people is truly restored.
It would be recalled that Hon. Tijani transparently won the primaries with total votes of 87, while the first- and second runner-ups had 52 votes and 35 votes. The primary was conducted in the presence of officials of INEC and relevant authorities. It was thus astonishing that our party deliberately replaced the name of the obvious winner with the name of a candidate that came a distant third with a mere 35 votes. This is not only clear anathema to our party’s internal democratic processes but also a clear miscarriage of justice, decency and equity. This necessitated the legal battle of Hon. Tijani to straighten the obvious miscarriage but retrieve the legitimate mandate reposed in him.
Between 2019 and today, the representation of Hon. Tijani Ismail Kayode has facilitated the greatest number of projects from roads, hospitals, classrooms, water, scholarships, jobs, entrepreneurship empowerments, community interventions and upgrades, which the Ifelodun/Offa/Oyun Federal Constituency has never witnessed. It is no surprise that Hon. Tijani is called Mr Projects. All these projects and strides are for the glory of our party, APC, and a true appreciation of the trust of our people that found in Hon Tijani a true son of the soil with the unshakeable interest of his people deep in his heart.
Almighty God is a true God of justice and even if it tarries, truth and justice shall eventually prevail over man’s capacity to be deceptive, unfaithful, corruptible, indecent and outrightly evil.
Today, we thank the good people of the Ifelodun/Offa/Oyun Federal Constituency for their overwhelming support and steadfastness in our journey.
