The chairman of New Nigeria People’s Party in Ogun state,Comrade Sunday Olaposi Oginni have described the performance of elective officials at the local government as below expectations.
Comrade Oginni made this known this morning during a radio program in Abeokuta the state capital, describing their victory as a temporary thing.
He said the various irregularities in the last local government election was the reason for their stay in office.
He also advocate the strengthening of grassroot institutions as the only way to take the dividend of democracy to the people.
Comrade Oginni added that local government autonomy and independent electoral umpire is the only guarantee of an effective local government administration.
“The local government administration should be encouraged by doing away with money bag politics as we saw in the last LG election.Grassroot people should measure the success of government by their performance not by the money given to them during election campaign. We can’t move forward if we don’t do away with our sick and dubious electoral process,and bias electoral agency like OGSIEC.That is when we can move forward as a nation and people. NNPP is not a deceptive party or group of people who don’t know what they want,we have sincere people who desire to change the political narrative of Ogun state.”
