Ajadi, a Nigerian Entrepreneur, emerged the consensus candidate of the Party during its primaries held on Wednesday, 3rd of August, 2022.
During the event held at the State Secretariat, Ashero, Ogun State, delegates from the 20 Local Governments and the party’s National officers all nodded in approval of Ajadi leading the party into next year’s Gubernatorial elections.
By virtue of his victory at the primaries, Ajadi now replaces the placeholder, Olujobi Fayoyin.
The enthusiast Ajadi, fresh from his victory, began pointing out ways in which the “Gateway State” could improve.
“Our party is not satisfied with the state of roads in our dear state, especially when you move out of the capital and other cities,” the Candidate began.
“It does seem as if border communities like Ibafo, AKute, etc are not part of Ogun state, but millions of our people live there, hundreds of businesses are done there; we will address it,” he stated.
While thanking security outfits in the state, like OPC and Amotekun, for their fight against insecurity, he declared tht security in the state was going to be one of his primary focus if elected into office.
“Every day, we hear stories of armed robbery, burglary, kidnap, and other security risks in the state!
“We will put a stop to it.
“We commend the OPC, Amotekun, and neighbourhood Watch for their efforts.
“Our government will collaborate with them and address the encroachment of criminals be they herdsmen or kidnappers in Ogun State,” Ajadi declared.
The Police Force were not left out as Ajadi describes ways of stimulating and motivating Officers of the law to safeguard lives and properties in the state.
“We will introduce incentives for policemen serving here; will install CCTV cameras in different parts of the state, with inter-community surveillance.
“Ogun must be safe and secure and NNPP administration will see to that,” he iterated.
Furthermore, Ajadi spoke on the issue of non salary payment, while making clear that his team were deriving ways to tackle this issue once and for all of voted into office to serve.
“We will not run a state owing people salaries or pensions after they have served the state, that is a grave injustice and I promise all our people that all outstanding payments will be addressed.
“We promise a new salary structure upon being elected,” Ajadi concluded.
At the end of the Primaries, every delegate, party Chieftain, Leader and dignitary present had no doubt in their minds that the NNPP had made the right call in making Ajadi their consensus candidate.
