Ekiti state Governor hopeful, Bisi Kolawole under the aegis of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has revealed that, he will follow the steps of his political godfather, Ayodele Fayose, reenacting stomach infrastructure
He also added that he will tackle the security problem in the state, as done by his godfather, Fayose.
Recall that, Fayose hire local hunter to tackle raging kidnapping in the state in his first four years as a sitting governor
He made this announcement in an interview in Ekiti
In his words:
I am seeking this position with a strong pedigree as a former legislator and former commissioner. I am going to be people-centric. All my activities will be centered around the people. If your people cannot cheer you as a governor, you are just a mere visitor, stranger, and expatriate.
“I will create a security-conscious environment to restore confidence in our people to go back to the farms. Never again will Ekiti people be kidnapped on the roads or in the farms nor will they be sacked or killed in the farms. When there is security, investors will come to establish industries. Then, government revenue will increase. Our people will be employed.”
Kolawole promised that if elected, his government would reengage workers laid off by the incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi in Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, and the state civil service
The PDP candidate said that he would develop the stomach infrastructure policy of the Ayodele Fayose administration, saying, “It is a good policy. Our people must enjoy the dividends of democracy. Nothing stops a governor from giving out part of the food in the Government House to feed the commoners”.
Kolawole added, “Some parts of the state, including Ekiti East, Gbonyin and Ekiti West have been in darkness for a decade. If Biodun Oyebanji, the APC candidate, who had been Secretary to the State Government could not solve the problem of electricity in his Ikogosi country home and Ipole, would he now be able to solve some of the problems confronting Ekiti?”
