2022: Ekiti APC Guber Candidate Presents 6-Point Agenda To Electorates



In a bid to have a roadmap for his government if eventually elected in the June 18 governorship election in Ekiti State, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Hon. Biodun Oyebanji on Monday, unveiled his 6-point agenda that would be his guide in governing the state.

The APC gubernatorial candidate in his manifesto, said  that job creation for young people and human capital development would be top priorities of Oyebanji’s government to further tap the rich human resources the state is endowed with.

Other critical areas captured in Oyebanji’s policy thrust according to him,include: Agriculture and Rural Development, Infrastructure and Industrialisation,Arts Culture and Tourism and Governance.

The party also embarked on a roadshow from the popular Trade Fair Complex to the party’s Secretariat in Ado-Ekiti to mobilise support for the APC candidate.

Addressing the crowd of party supporters at the unveiling of the manifesto held at the Trade Fair Complex, Ado-Ekiti, Oyebanji,said he won’t take for granted the votes of over 100,000 party adherents who elected him at the January 27 primary.

“This is not a promise made by a politician, but a promise that I made as an Ekiti man to Ekiti people. We are going to grow the economy and create jobs for our people. We will invest in human capital to safeguard the future of our people.

“Our mission is to provide quality education and develop our knowledge zone in order to create jobs, new markets, and attract financing for industrious Ekiti entrepreneurs to start or grow their businesses.

“We will  complete all strategic infrastructure projects in transport, agriculture and power designed to improve the quality of lives for all and make Ekiti competitive for businesses of all sizes.

“We will provide conducive environment and sustainable welfare package for our workers,retirees and traditional institution, develop our rural communities, support our farmers and improve the productivity of our agriculture sector.

“We are going to develop our tourism industry by investing in our attractions , cultural endowments and assets, complete projects that will increase power supply and extend and maintain our transportation networks.

“Among all the candidates for this Ekiti election, I am the only one that has a programme that can drive innovation, create wealth and bring deserved development”, Oyebanji said.

The Director General, Biodun Oyebanji campaign outfit, Hon. Cyril Fasuyi, added that the event marked the beginning of electioneering campaign in APC and signposted the fact that it will be issue- based.

Fasuyi said the manifesto was a well articulated document that serves as a social contract between the ruling party and the Ekiti masses and a well amplified testimony that the party is ready to give the people the required dividends of democracy.

In his address to members, the Party’s State Chairman, Paul Omotoso, said the June 18 election is a forgone conclusion and that there is every proof that the APC would win the poll in a landslide fashion.

“You will all know that all other political parties are number two to APC in Ekiti because we have done well. The good work that Governor Kayode Fayemi has done can make us to be bold to ask for votes.

“Our candidate is a kind man and someone who has worked for Ekiti. This is a must-win election for us and we will do everything legitimate to win. We love Ekiti and Ekiti loves us, so we must go back home and preach the gospel to our people.

“We must campaign vigorously and  take nothing for granted. No single ward will be lost by APC, we will win all the 177 wards and 16 local governments. Don’t betray us, be firm, so that we can all benefit”.
