“Sir, under your leadership today, you have sworn oath to protect the interest of all and as an umbrella under All Progressives Congress in Okehi Local Government, we wish to commend your steadfastness in fairness and equity.

In memorial, we had never rotated the position of Caretaker or Administrator. All we do rotate is k the position of Executive Chairman and other Elective positions.

For equity, fairness and Justice, from June 2015 to April 2016 Ihima district had produced the then Executive chairman Hon Yusuf Okwenyete and House of Assembly Member, Hon. Abdulkareem Kekere Sanni in the same district.

History is one of the pillars of good education, in 2007 to 2011 Ihima district had the Deputy Governor, Mr Philip Salawu; the House of Representatives Member was Hon. A. K saliu; House of Assembly from Okehi was Hon. Idris Jatto still from Ihima and Chief MJ Ozovehe as Permanent Member, Local Government Service Commission leaving Eika district with only Executive Chairman. Could this be called injustice or fairness?

O.A.C.D, a United family of APC whose mandate stands for fairness, equity and Justice wish to categorically apologise to the whole entire Okehi Citizens for the misleading article from faceless group. Specifically, we are appealing to the people of Eika district to be calm and choose who is to be elected as the next executive Chairman of Okehi LGA.
