“I want to show my appreciation to the incoming governor, Bisi Kolawole for his countless support in making my ambition a reality, knowing the fact that he had stated it clearly that youth involvement in governance is one of his major political agenda,” Akomolafe said.
He added: “I am grateful for his interest and I owe him a sense of duty to ensure that we deliver on this mandate and more significantly that we redefine what quality representation is, especially for the people of Ikere, Ise, Orun and Ekiti South-West.
“I acknowledge the effort of the entire Àtúnkọ́ team, home and abroad. The PDP supporters, the community and importantly our Royal fathers the Ogoga of Ikere, Oba Adejimi Adu-Alagbado and The Olukere, Oba Ganiyu Obasoyin who have been unequivocal in their support.
