Lagos 2015: Group urges unity in Epe division
AN association of sons and daughters of Epe Division, the Epe Unity Development Council (EUDC) has called for understanding among all governorship aspirants ahead of the 2015 governorship elections.
The Chairman of EUDC, retired Justice of the Supreme Court George Oguntade urged all aspirants to distance themselves from every act capable of reducing the chances of the division to produce a formidable candidate, who will enjoy the support and followership of all in the election.
Justice Oguntade spoke at the weekend at a forum with the divisional monarchs, party leaders and other distinguished sons and daughters of Epe in attendance.
He warned those using the various social media platforms to cause confusion and circulate untrue information about any of the aspirants to desist from the act as such behaviour would “generate undue hatred, enmity, disaffection, long-term disunity and under-development in the division.”
He said that the overall desire of the EUDC is to establish a peaceful relationship among all the aspirants such that when a candidate finally emerges, other aspirants would be able to lend their support and work together for the state’s overall development.
According to him, the EUDC is not in any way affiliated to any political party, pressure group or solidarity group, but mainly interested in the division’s unity and development.
The division’s royal fathers at the event were led by the Alara of Ilara-Epe, Oba Akeem Adesanya, the Oloye of Epe, Oba Kamorudeen Animashaun, Olu of Epe, Oba Shefiu Olatunji Adewale, the Onise of Iseland, Oba Ganiyu Adegbesan.
Other prominent sons and daughters included Alhaji S. A. Seriki, Otunba Teni Zaccheaus, Chief Lanre Razak, Mrs. Shade Agbalajobi, Mr. Wale Raji, A. Aiyeola, Mr. Akin Ambode, Tunde Seriki, Dr. Tola Kasali, Dele Ibrahim, Dr. K. Hamzat and others.
