The Bisi Kolawole Campaign Organization (BKCO) got a boost as classmates in the 1970/1974 set of Doherty Memorial Grammar School, Ijero Ekiti donated campaign materials to the body on Thursday, declaring their total support for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Hon Bisi Kolawole, whom they described as an upright and firm person.
In a brief ceremony at BKCO situation office at Adebayo, Ado Ekiti, on Thursday, Acting President of Class 70/74, Group Captain Firopo Ayegbusi (Rtd), led some other members of the class to present bundles of campaign posters and other sourvenirs to the candidate of the PDP.
Speaking with newsmen during the presentation, Ayegbusi who described Bisi Kolawole as upright, straight forward, compassionate and of impeccable character said Ekiti will be better for it if he is elected governor.
“I have known Bisi Kolawole for more that 50 years now. I can attest to his character. I can tell you for free that he is a man of enormous integrity, dignity and honour.
“The Kolawole dynasty in Efon Alaaye is one that has built reputation for itself over the years. Bisi will build on that by putting Ekiti on the desired pedestal in Nigeria.
“The PDP in Ekiti State has made a brilliant decision in electing this man of honour at the primary election, we want to urge Ekiti to vote him at the general election. When they do, he will not disappoint them.
“Bisi knows the value of quality education, he knows the importance of quality health, he’s urbane, he knows that industries can only spring up in a secured environment, Ekiti can be guaranteed all these if they vote for him.
“Having ruminated on what Ekiti stands to benefit if you are given the opportunity to paddle the canoe, we your classmates of 70/74 set of Doherty Memorial Grammar School, Ijero, your Alma Matter deemed it a duty to present you these campaign materials,” Ayegbusi said.
Responding, Kolawole who was accompanied by his deputy governorship candidate, Barr. Kolapo Kolade and Ekiti Central Senatorial District aspirant, Alhaji Lati Ajijola, thanked his classmates for the gesture.
“I want to use this medium to sincerely appreciate each and every member of the 70/74 DMGS set.
“This laudable gesture is one that I cherish and hold in high esteem. I must say this humbled me greatly even as it placed upon me a sense of eternal indebtedness to this noble association.
“It is my prayer that we live long in good health to reap from where we have sowed,” I thank you so much, he said.
