The 2019 elections might have come and gone, but the lessons therein will forever set a parameter for new emerging political leaders.
Some celebrated victory, many more mourned their losses. No doubt, history will bear witness to the heroic efforts of patriotic Nigerians most especially the citizens of Ogun State made during the conduct of the just concluded general elections. History shall bear record of these events and posterity shall thank you all for it.
However, some candidates didn’t win the election but have written their names on marble with the amount of impact they made. One of such candidates is our very own Armstrong ‘Tope Akintunde who ran for the Ogun East Senatorial Seat.
Having met all conditions to run for a political post, the young, vibrant and innovative gentleman drew the attention of his people during the campaign, with his well constructed and comprehensive manifesto that exposed his great vision and mission he has in turning the tides of Ogun East Senatorial District and Ogun State in General. His performance and the support he got from the youths, Paramount Rulers, women and different organizations during the election is a proof that he is indeed the FUTURE OF OGUN STATE POLITICS.
Victory comes in different forms, for us who support and believe in you, we see your emergence as a party candidate and your good performance at the elections against all odds as a strong indication that you will be a great force in the near future.
We are glad that you gave it your best shot and you fought a good battle. We strongly have a great confidence in you and would support your next move if you wish to seek any Political Position.
