Many breakthroughs were recorded in the last General Elections of Saturday March 28th and April 11, 2015 as Nigeria’s major Opposition party All People’s Congress (APC) snatched off some very delicate states belonging to People’s Democratic Party (PDP) thereby swelling the rank of the opposition party both at the national level and legislative level of governance.

Among states taken over by APC from PDP is Adamawa state, Katsina state, Plateau state, Bauchi state, Niger state and Kaduna state to mention few.
At the national assembly, the number of the APC lawmakers also swelled up at the detriment of the once upon a time PDP dominance thereby making the APC to become the leading party while PDP became the opposition.

However, one man who gave history a chance to prevail in Ogun state is Television great turned politician Otunba Dayo Adenye aka D-One as he broke a 16 years jinx in the history of his Local Government Area of Ibefun-Odogbolu by winning the area for APC. The D-One factor was said to have come to light after a very intimidating house-to-house campaign strategy by PDP agent in early march. D-One countered the campaign with a more massive one on Friday March 27 where the TV buff and his team met with market women, youths and artisan in a campaign tagged “Change-Direct”
The rally which was the very LAST RALLY in Odogbolu LGA became the real albatross of the PDP as D-One’s celebrity status was brought to full blare with lots of people admiring his guts and conduct. With hundreds of youths and local people trooping out to match for D-One just twenty four hours to governorship and house of assembly elections, success was boldly written in favor of APC at Ibefun-Odogbolu LGA.
The LGA which produced a former Nigeria’s number two citizen, General Oladipupo Diya is known to have been the strong hold of the PDP in the last 16 years especially during the reign of Otunba Gbenga Daniel.

In his remarks to citizen, Otunba Dayo Adeneye was quoted to be telling Ibefun-Odogbolu citizens in his local Ijebu dialect that “Igba Otun ti de o” (Meaning a new season is here), the television and radio genius who is also the co-founder of Primtetime Entertainment a leading syndicated television show across TV stations in Africa urged his people to vote APC on both leaflet the next day and ensure that the political dividends goes round as it will be foolhardy for his people to be in opposition while the government at the center and the state is in one boat.
D-One’s pedigree as a celebrity and youth ambassador immediately arrested the people’s attention while his proposal equally sails through with their acceptance.

On Tuesday 11th of November 2014 D-One carried out his first major public campaign in the town with full fledged activities as artisans, Okada riders, taxi drivers and other professionals took to the street to welcome the convoy of one of Africa’s most revered entertainment guru with a surge of guests from Lagos, Ghana, and London who came to support the dream of the TV man turned politician who was on a mission to salvage his constituency from the slavery of the opposition party.
Exactly 5 months after that historic campaign in Odogbolu, D-One’s APC got a keenly contested 1263 votes ahead of PDP’s 1210 votes, using a clean 53 votes to beat off PDP.
Since the victory, ordinary people in Ibefun-Odogbolu have been celebrating, with a collective opinion that it is a ticket to a new season of development, progress and political stability in Ibefun-Odogbolu from the all-inclusive government of His Excellency, Senator Ibikunle Amosun (FCA)
