Veteran Nigerian entertainer, Charly Boy alongside Deji Adeyanju on Tuesday led the “Ourmumudondo” group on a courtesy visit to the Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, during the group’s voters education campaign to the state.
Charly Boy used the opportunity of the visit to tell the monarch that the group was in Osogbo and Ile-Ife on a two-day public campaign against vote-buying ahead of the governorship election slated to hold on September 22 in the state.
According to him, the visit is to brief the Ooni on the activities of the group, and to have him lend his voice against the trend of vote buying and selling. He said:
“As a well respected father and traditional leader, we have come to ask for your support in our efforts toward campaigning against bad leadership, especially the menace of vote-buying. There is urgent need for a better society for the ordinary Nigerian who has been deprived of good leadership over the years.
We want politicians who will give jobs to our youths, build roads, give light and other basic amenities. We are here to tell the electorate that as they go to the poll on Saturday, they should not sell their votes for any amount, and then suffer for the next 4years,” Charlyboy told the Mornach.
In his remarks, the Ooni commended the group for championing the course for good leadership and value reawakening, especially among the youths. He therefore pledged his support for the group, especially in its voter’s education initiative.
