However, one of the APC Leaders from Ward C3, Igbogbo, Alhaji Afolabi from Bayeku applauded Hon. Alimi's initiatives and enjoined the youth to vote him come July 22nd, because their vote will not be a waste.
In the same vein, Mr Ashifat from Oreta community urged the youths to be productive with their time, while he seized the opportunity to seek for their votes in favour of Hon. Nurudeen Alimi. He said, "He is the best man for the job."
In furtherance to this, Hon. Raheem Oke from Offin applauded the systematic method adopted by the Party leadership in Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA to ensure the zoning of councillorship in ward C3.

He therefore enjoined every youth to obtain their PVC as the only means to elect the man of their choice. He was so optimistic that Alimi will facilitate the construction of the dilapidated roads.
