Ahead of 2023 general elections, Oke-Ogun Community in Abeokuta North local government area of Ogun State today in their hundreds staged a solidarity rally soliciting support for Engr Shokunle Owolabi Afeez popularly known as NIYAS in his aspiration to become the next Abeokuta North, House of Assembly.

Also one of the Aspirant, Hon Akode Joseph for Ogun state house of Assembly stepped down for Niyas to contest the assembly seat.
The community appealed to all the elders and leaders of the party to ensure emergence of NIYAS as it's preferred Abeokuta North House of Assembly flagbearer in its forthcoming primary elections.

At a meeting in Oke-Ogun Community today which had in attendance the party faithful from ward 13, 14, 15 and 16 which included the Oke-Ogun Community Leaders, Chief Hamed Taiwo, Prince Timothy Akindele, Captain Samuel Gboyega Ige among others, said Niyas has the needed character, capacity, competence and capability for the exalted office. 

One of the leader in the community, Prince Timothy Akindele listed the installation of solar powered light, grading of roads and skill acquisition programmes for people in ward 16 amongst others during Niyas 2021 councillorship campaign and after, as some of his achievements in Abeokuta North local government.

He explained that Niyas who has not tasted any political position was owing to his track records and as a philanthropist who has positively touched the lives many less privileged persons.

While reacting to the purported impeachment of Oke-Ogun Community Leader, captain Samuel Gboyega said there was nothing of such adding that Chief Hamed Taiwo remains the leader of Oke-Ogun Community.

He added that the Imposition of the consultant to the Ogun State Governor Prince Dapo on media, Prince Ifekayode Akinbode as the new Chairman was nothing but to cause disunity in the community.

The community therefore endorsed Niyas as there preferred house of Assembly candidate come 2023 general elections.
