In 2015 no election till date.
Once again, I reiterated Ajaokuta Local Government Council positions are shared considering the old four ward and i’m pretty sure u have get your conviction from my analysis.
As we approach the election, the reigning political party(APC) has unanimously zone the position of chairman to Ebiya.
I’m suggesting and appealing to APC as a formidable party to considerably zone the position of vice chairman to the Old Adogo ward
Currently The Old Eganyi ward has the current House of Assembly, the Commisioner for Health, The SSA on Muitilateral & focus person, and the APC party chairman.
Old Ajaokuta ward has the House Of Representative and The DG protocol to the Vice Governor.
It is obvious that Old Adogo ward lacks behind.
It is on this bases I seek for balancing through this political analysis, we hope that we in Old Adogo ward will be considered with this vice chairman position so as to complements the existing standard which has earn our political settings an enviable height.
