The governorship candidate of Advanced Allied Party, (AAP) in Ogun state, Prince John Adegbola has declared that his primary concern is to put the state on the path of sufficiency through massive investment in power, qualitative education, accessible health care, agriculture and infrastructure with a technology driven administration.
The 35 years old trained teacher and human resource expert from Ado-Odo/Ota local government stated this in an interview with our reporter.
He explained that within his four years in office, his government would have taken 25% of the population off the national grid by exploring alternative sources of power, especially from solar energy while 26% of the total budget of the state as recommended by UNESCO would be deployed to fund education.
Adegbola pledged that health care and welfare of the citizens would also be greatly improved upon with the children and the aged enjoying free health care services.
Promising to run a technology driven administration, the governorship candidate reiterated commitment to investing in agriculture making it a money spinning venture and employment generating sector just as it was before the oil booming period.
He said “we will be focusing on massive empowerment for all residents and human capacity development across board. We shall harness both the human and natural resources of the state to make her a cynosure of all eyes. I foresee an Ogun State that will be competing with nations and not just Nigerian states. We shall ensure an equitable and fair distribution of government resources across the state”.
Speaking on infrastructural development, Adegbola said ” this is an ongoing thing especially for developing economies like ours, so we can’t say we’ve got it all.
However, we also need to focus on human capital development, education, healthcare, job creation and welfare. I believe in equity and fairness, hence I shall ensure the equitable and fair distribution of state resources across board”.
“I shall also ensure that the impact of government is felt in the hinterlands.
Infrastructure provision will be provided on need basis and not to massage government’s ego”.
