Oyo State African Democratic Congress, ADC, governorship candidate, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin (SOLAN), has promised even development for all towns and cities that make up Oyo State, irrespective of whether capital, or hinterland, in the interest of equity and social justice.
Lanlehin, whose campaign tour kicked off in Iganna, moved to Iwere-Ile, and then Ijio, before coursing through Ilero, Ilua and Isemi-Ile, all in Kajola local government.
Lanlehin, addressing a large crowd of party faithful, promised them “life more abundant, shared prosperity, and a government that prioritises their welfare.”
“Our government shall ensure its top agenda is human capital development, and the promotion of our people’s welfare,” Lanlehin told an enthusiastic crowd at Iwere-Ile, headquarters of Iwajowa local government.
Accompanied by Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja, former Oyo State deputy governor, Senator Gbenga Babalola, Chief Lowo Obisesan, and Hon Wale Adegoke, Lanlehin itemised the core priorities of his government to include free, qualitative education, agricultural revolution through the reinstatement of farm settlements fitted with modern equipment to encourage youths, as well as establishment of primary healthcare centres, amongst other pro people plans.
“Cottage industries will be established near the farm settlements to ensure farm produce are transformed into juice, and other edibles. This will not only ensure we maximise our harvest, but also guarantee employment to our teeming youths,” Lanlehin promised.
At Iganna, Lanlehin assured the people that his government will engage local contractors, who in turn will utilise artisans, in the building of roads, schools and healthcare centres, as a means of generating wealth.
Also on Lanlehin’s entourage was Barrister Bayo Lawal, Oyo North Senatorial candidate, Hon Abiodun Olasupo, member representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Hon Afeez Adeleke, member representing Iseyin State Constituency, Hon Tajudeen Olori, Iwajowa State Constituency candidate, and Hon Bola Oladepo, Kajola State Constituency candidate.
Presenting candidates from that axis to the people, Lanlehin urged them to vote ADC in all elections, to ensure rapid transformation of the state, as the ADC, according to him, “is peopled by men of character, and integrity, whose love for the people, is unparalleled,” Lanlehin reminded them that only the “handshake” party can truly transform Oyo State.
Also on the campaign team was Oyo State ADC Chairman, Alh (Dr) Ahmed Ayinla, and Secretary, Alh Wasiu Emiola.
