Hon. Daud is a strong believer of Governor Seyi Makinde philosophy of good governance which places interest of people above others. Hon. Daud is in his youthful age, he possessed the energy and intellectual prowess to change narrative in the local government and deliver good governance. He knows the nooks and crannies of the local government that cut across; Akeetan, Ajokidero/Akewugberu, Fasola/Soku, Isokun I, Isokun II, Iyaji, Opapa, Pakoyin and Idode.
It will be suicidal for the party to present someone who was given 14 months to direct the affairs of local government and failed to tour any ward, factionalized the party and diverted the entire Council resources to his personal camp.
Presenting a candidate of above 50 years and those smelling 60 years will be counter-productive to the effective administration of Oyo West local government area. Oyo West local government needs a youthful Chairman that can go extra mile to deliver good governance.
