The wife of Osun State Governor, Kafayat Oyetola on Friday unveiled an all-women campaign group called ‘Akoni Obinrin’ that would canvass for votes for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 general election.
Mrs Oyetola, who was joined at the unveiling ceremony of the group in Osogbo, by the wife of the immediate past governor of Oyo State, Mrs Florence Ajimobi, in her remarks said, ‘Akoni Obinrin’ was put together to enhance women’s participation in Osun politics.
She charged members of the group to embark on house to house campaign across the state to gather support for Tinubu’s presidential ambition.
She said, “Our current focus in Akoni Obinrin is to mobilize, in an unprecedented manner for the victory of the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the other candidates of the All Progressive Congress in the 2023 elections.
“Let us rise again and bring up that country we all yearn for. Let’s renew the hope in our children. Your engagements led to the unprecedented increase in the number of voters that turned out in the last election in the state. We can do this again. We must get into each house in this state and get every eligible voter to come out and do the needful.
