The Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate for Ilorin East/South Federal Constituency, Honorable (Dr) Abdulganiyu Saka Cook-Olododo’s re-election bid has garnered more endorsement from traditional and community leaders, and residents alike, from his major oppositions’ wards and others across Ilorin East and South local governments.
Olododo’s reelection campaign gained major boost, with the Alangua of Okaka – Alhaji Suleiman Baba, homestead of Olododo’s APC contender raining praises on the lawmaker for his sterling performance at the House of Representatives, while also urging the people to vote massively next Saturday, for him to return to the National Assembly.
The lawmaker during his visits to the courts of Balogun Gambari and Balogun Fulani of Ilorin, Balogun Afin, Serikin Hausawa, Alanguas of Zango, Kulende, Sobi and Oke Ogun, including Magajis of Alalubosa, Tegbesun and Gaa Osini was also greeted with rain of prayers for the success of Olododo and SDP, with encomiums and commendations for the impacts he has made since his election into the National Assembly.
In Gambari ward 2, Zango ward, Akanbi 5 among others, Olododo’s campaign train received scores of defectors from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) into SDP.
The defectors were led by Comr. Ridwan Alangua Yaradua, a former APC member in Zango ward and a former candidate for Kwara house of Assembly under restoration party, who hinged his dumping of the ruling party on failed promises of APC and Hon. Olododo’s impactful representation.
