The Election was so transparent that Elder Leke’s other contenders easily and quickly accepted defeat without putting up any challenge both at the election tribunal and in the court of law.
Though in the build up to the 2019 House of Representatives Election in the Yagba Axis of okun area, the ADC as a political party was so novel and relatively obscure in the political arena yet with a credible candidate in the person of Leke Abejide the party was able to gain prominence within a period of two years.
Elder Leke has been able to demonstrate that a good politician can win election based on his own personal pedigree inrespective of political party structure.
It was clear to all political actors that the people of Yagba federal constituency wholeheartedly accepted the candidature of Leke Abejide.
Hon Leke Abejide has introduced a new dimension into the politics of Okun Land with his annual payments of SSCE WAEC Examination fees for students across Yagba Land.
To show his commitment to raising future generation of letters , he expanded the programme to cover both public and private schools which for 2022 set, it will cost him seventy million naira.
An initiative which everyone has come to accept as having direct impacts and benefits for each of the families and households in the federal constituency.
Instead of the old practice of giving handouts and crumbs to people during elections campaign or engaging in votes buying on Election Day.
Leke Abejide has been able to provide genuine dividence of democracy for his people by developing their children and wards with the basic level of education for them.
This usually philanthropic gesture has remained an indelible part of the reason why the people have come to love him and his political movement. The gesture has gone a long way in reducing the financial burden of parents in the constituency.
There is a common saying in the local Palace that there is absolutely no reason to change a winning horse at the verge of victory. Which goes to prove that with the great support and love that Elder Leke has enjoyed and still enjoying from the yagba people, his reelection bid would only turn out to be a mere formality , if all things being equal, because he remain the only choice of the people.
