Agboworin declared his full support, on Friday, while gracing the New Year party organised by the PDP Ibadan North East Local government, where he was invited as a special Guest of honour.
The lawmaker, while addressing crowd at the carnival-like event, which held at St. Cyprians Primary School, Oke Adu, Ibadan, noted that Akintayo should be reelected on the strength of his impactful projects in different sectors of the state including education, health, security, human capacity development, among others.

“We all know that enemies rose against all what we were doing but the will of God prevailed. In my case, we went to the Tribunal and Appeal Court, yet we won as God took control of the whole process. So, I give the glory to Him.
“Now, I want to tell you that you have a lot to do in the forthcoming election you are preparing for. It is a great job that is ahead of you, which you must fulfill. And I believe you will do just that for our man, Akintayo. This time around, he will win again.
“I need you all to do the same way for my brother, Akintayo. The votes you used to elect me, you need to replicate that in the coming LG election,” Agboworin stated.
