He stressed the need for the ADC to collaborate with like minds to step up advocacy across the wards to woo more opinion moulders and eligible voters.
He assured the crowd of excellent leadership and representation by the ADC candidates if voted in for various positions.
At another meeting held at NUJ press centre, Iyaganku, Ibadan, Olatubosun charged local government and ward chairmen of the ADC in Ibadan South West Local Government to double up their efforts in combing the grassroots to raise awareness and canvass support for all the candidates of the party to ensure victory at the polls.
