"The party should be diligent. The most qualified is Chief Olusola Oke. He is tested. He knows all the nooks and crannies of the state. He is not a tutelage in politics.

 "That Chief Olusola Oke of all the aspirants appears, in our views, to tick all the parameters or yardsticks.

"Aside from having the grassroots appeal that cuts across the three senatorial districts of the state, he has a wide network of national recognition, having worked at the top echelon of the opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP) at the national level for years, which gave him that prominence beyond local politics.

"His cult followership as well as unblemished records of no scandal whatsoever are also an added advantage for him.
"Ipso facto, we therefore rise from this press conference and submit that, as the umbrella body of the global Yorùbá foremost group, we believe the candidature of Chief Olusola Oke (SAN) will represent various interests that cut across all divides.

"His choice will create a centripetal force that will ultimately decimate any opposition in the state.

"The state at this critical time needs a leader who can mend fences, calm frayed nerves, and bring all progressives together as one force to deliver a resounding victory for the ruling party."
