RECOMMENDATION AND ATTESTATION TO THE EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP STRENGTH OF ONE OF THE ASPIRANTS IN THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTION
In the most civil, polite and well-mannered approach, we extend our solemn greetings to your awfully revered and greatly venerated personality.
We stand as a youthful, sprightly, highly vivacious and apolitical community of vibrant young minds with an average age of members not above 28years under the appellation “HARBINGERS OF A PROGRESSIVE IGBOGBO-COMMUNITY” an association that previously existed as a smaller circle within some youth organizations but has metamorphosed into a registered organization with the objectives and ideals remaining unchanged.
It is imperative to apprise you that the membership of the association is exclusive to indigenes of the community whose inherent interest is in tandem with the ideals of the association which is primarily the progress of Igbogbo community ,the association has since been locked down in various struggles geared towards the overall advancement of the community, one of it is the communique released to pacify youths on the need to embrace the recent developments proposed to Ikorodu division by the Governor of Lagos State. We exist as a pressure group that pledges our staunch allegiance, unwavering fidelity and unalloyed support to a progressive development and condemns outrightly a retrogressive one or its replica.
It stands very relevant and crucial at this point to express our sympathetic pleasure, joy and undaunted commendation for your self standing efforts in producing quality and good worth leaders in our community, names like Late Hon. Rotimi Sotomiwa, Hon. Adebimpe Akinsola, Hon. N. S Sholaja and even the incumbent Sole Administrator of the council, Chief Mrs Bolanle Basorun are worthy of special mention for enjoying unfettered endorsement from members of the community for inflicting on them the dividends of good leadership. We also apprehend quality and great value in your concerted effort to allure laudable and praiseworthy projects to Ikorodu division specifically the stadium, mall and rehabilitation of Igbe-Ginti Road to mention few, we consider this a great step towards a positive direction and we give an assurance of our support towards this positive development.
As Harbingers of progress and based on our clairsentience experience, we forsee a more developed community in years to come, we have also been able to comprehend in our life sojourn that dreams do not become reality until it is set in motion. Guided by this precept we have decided to take our faith by our hands, this is because we have good knowledge of the fact that the choice of the number one citizen and executive head of the community will either make or Mar the possibility of a standard and stable community, we also understand the significance of an honest, dedicated, committed and pragmatic leader to nation building. It is against this backdrop that the Harbingers have taken the lead to assess aspirants vying for the chairmanship position in the light of the qualities expected of a worthy leader.
Having carefully accessed all aspirants in the race for the number one position, it beats our imagination and impresses us to inform you that all the aspirants possessing the qualities stated above are within the All Progressives Congress and this has informed our admittance that the party is in truth a progressive one however where the best is required, the word good becomes a misnomer. In this vein we extended our search to critically examine these candidates and select the very best whose dexterity, integrity, maturity and disparity is capable of actualizing the dream of a standard, well developed and highly secured community that we crave for. It will beguile you to know that we were able to decisively determine the best candidate.
Just like the biblical Messiah, we were able to discover a man with distinct character who has transgressed from the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of humanity, a man whose proven capabilities and vast experience has edged him among great leaders, his unrestricted commitment to the course of humanity, community development and good governance is unbeatable.
It is on this premise that we recommend to you on an advisory and persuasive note, Hon. Taiwo Mathew Orenuga J.PIL as our preferred candidate for the IGBOGBO/BAIYEKU LCDA chairmanship seat.
Essentially, it is expedient to inform you that this recommendation is devoid of sentiment, bias, prejudice or nepotism but of an objective and close evaluation of all aspirants as well as the result of an opinion poll conducted across wards to sample random views on the candidates, the facts indeed speaks for itself.
In as much as we are keen on a transparent, consistent and true democracy in practice, we hope that this
recommendation guides your intuition and rational discerning mind and those of your co-horts and loyalists as the general election draws near and the polls come knocking, we urge you to consider our bold step of betraying and overriding our desire for a youthful representation in the overall and best interest of the community.
We have a copy of some remarkable achievements of Hon. Orenuga as councillor, progressive indigene and Executive Secretary. His services to humanity has been entirely selfless and he has refused to enmesh himself in illicit or illegitimate act that can have an adverse effect on his integrity.
Beyond the sentiment that comes with election, there is an attendant need to crest our community among the developed and beautiful places of this world, the test is an objective one and the harbingers do not fear being indicted should the character represented here proves otherwise.
Thanks and God bless.
