Rumour Of My Withdrawal From Osun Assembly Race Laughable - Oderinu, ADC Candidate For Ejigbo Constituency

The candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), contesting to represent Ejigbo State Constituency at the Osun State House of Assembly, Mr. Damola Oderinu has said speculations about his withdrawal would never deter him from coasting to victory on March 2 House of Assembly election.

He stated that the people peddling the rumor that he has withdrawn from the Assembly race are clueless.

The graduate of Pure and Applied Chemistry from LAUTECH stated that "when people lack a clear strategy for victory, this is the sort of macabre dance they resort to."

In a press release made available to our correspondent, he stated that "it is laughable that someone will wake up on one wrong side of his bed, conjure falsehood and begin to go from house to house to sell same. How can anybody be comfortable spreading the rumor that I withdrew from the Assembly race when they know it is an outright lie?"

"I have not withdrawn from this race because I am not contesting so that it may appear on my CV that I once contested; I am contesting to win. I am also not contesting for my sake alone, I am contesting as a torchbearer for my generation of young people who are now ready to take leadership position. I can't abandon such an assignment in the name of stepping down for anyone", he continued.

Further clarifying his position, Oderinu said "the most irritating thing about the rumor conjured by whoever started this falsehood is that they are claiming I withdrew for a man who taught me in Primary 3! In the first place, it is laughable that he (my teacher) is in this race against a boy he taught in primary school. Why will I withdraw for a man who should have stepped down for the younger generation, seeing my candidacy as a good horse to back?"

"Again, this man (the APC man) that these rumor mongers are claiming I stepped down for is the same man who refused to attend the Candidates' debate organized by the Ejigbo Local Government Students body, ELGASA. How can I step down for a man who was 'too busy' to honor the invitation of the people he plans to represent? How can I step down for a man who looked down on our people like that? I won't ever think of that", he said.

The former NAOSS National PRO finally stated that he remains steadfast in his bid to represent the people of Ejigbo State Constituency and the rumors of his withdrawal from the race should be treated as "the last gasp survival strategy of a candidate who is slowly sinking into the river of defeat but is trying his best to hold onto anything. This is the strategy of clueless people and their jingoists."

Damola Oderinu hails from Agurodo in Ward 6 of Ejigbo Local Government and is contesting on the platform of the ADC.
