The concerned stakeholders while addressing newsmen in Ilorin, the state capital asked Alabi to go ahead in his ambition, assuring him of their total support.
They said Yekini’s emergence as the Ifelodun/Offa/Oyun constituency’s Representative would be a justification for the passage of the “Not Too Young To Run Bill”.
