Ibarapa Youth Consultative Forum, Ibarapa East Local Government Chapter has urged the Speaker of the Oyo State House to Assembly, Adebo Ogundoyin to draw a line between respect of motherhood and politics.

The group in a statement co-signed by its Chairman, Kehinde Olayiwola and Secretary, Gboyega Idowu, which was made available to newsmen on Wednesday 3rd of March, frowned at the domineering and imposition stance of the Speaker’s mother, Tina Ogundoyin.

The group urged the speaker to always allow his people’s choice to prevail while condemning the scanty nature of projects in Ibarapa to match up with other zones in the state.

The statement reads in full: “Barely two years ago when many of us trooped out enmass to support the candidacy of and voted for Rt. Hon Adebo Edward Ogundoyin, the present Speaker of Oyo State, we put two factors into consideration: The philanthropic nature of his late father and his own youthfulness, while party affiliations took the back seat. Our happiness knew no bounds when he won.

“Our hope was rekindled because, in our unassuming mindset, we thought Adebo would be a reincarnate of his father whose burning love for the development of the Ibarapa community was second to none. To put the record straight, no one had ever beaten his opponents hands down with such a landslide margin like Rt. Hon Adebo Ogundoyin defeated his contenders in the last Assembly Election that put him in office as the third citizen in the pacesetter state.”

“However, it is quite disheartening to come to term with the ugly reality that for the past one and a half years that Adebo Ogundoyin has become the Speaker, the number of projects completed as the Speaker is not even up to the number of fingers adorning one of our hands. Apart from the Mosque he built at Lagaye and the embarrassingly pathetic kiosk-like piece being rented in Lanlate to serve as constituency office, there is hardly any visible and befitting projects to know that the Speaker is working.”
