Oyo State All Progressives Congress (APC), governorship candidate, Senator Teslim Folarin on Monday, said he is on rescue mission to restore the dignity and pacesetting status of Oyo State.

The APC governorship candidate in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan, declared that his administration if elected, is determined to elevate ” Oyo State from the nadir to the zenith of good governance, where it truly belongs”

According to Senator Folarin his decision to contest the governorship election was as a result of calls by stakeholders in Oyo state asking him to come and rescue the state from its present pitiable situation and moved it forward for Growth and Development”. 

” Barely two years after the inauguration of the present administration in Oyo State, I was inundated with calls from critical stakeholders across all walks of life on the pertinent need to rescue our dear State from the claws of the most vision less government in the history of the Pacesetter State with a view to moving the State Forward for Growth and Development”, he said. 

The APC governorship candidate added ” for more than three years, all areas of governance in Oyo State have largely been kissing the canvass. From all indices, it is apparent our people, instead of enjoying dividends of democracy, are suffering from a government where institutional rigidity, exclusiveness, pervasive insecurity, policy summersaults, monumental debt and inoperable economic ideas reign supreme”. 

According to Senator Folarin, ” despite being blessed by providence with surplus human and capital resources, our people are made to live under severe hardship and excruciating frustration as a result of receding opportunities.

Hence, my decision to offer myself to serve the good people of Oyo State as Governor from May 29, 2023″. 

” With my robust administrative experience, unimpeded courage and strength of conviction, I am poised to invest in policies that will drive economic development, provide a sea of opportunities for the teeming populace, improve healthcare, agriculture, education and infrastructure, so that our State can be an investment hub and a preferred destination for industrialists.

” All these will be clothed in human face by our administration, which will be people – driven. My aim is to form a pact with the good people of Oyo State through an invaluable blueprint that is anchored on a mission to move Oyo State Forward for Growth and Development.” 

Senator Folarin noted, ” Our government shall be established on a mission that will prioritize functional and qualitative education for all school-age children, productive mechanized agriculture, efficient and affordable healthcare delivery for all, irrespective of age, gender and status; massive industrialization, strongly supported by expansive agricultural value chain; employment generation with emphasis on entrepreneurship and innovation; urban renewal and rural infrastructural development”.

He stressed further, ” our government shall secure Oyo State, where every lawful citizen shall have no reason to fear or fret.

It’s TKF O’clock! I urge everyone to join me on this Rescue Mission to restore the dignity and pacesetting status of our dear State. Let’s elevate Oyo State from the nadir to the zenith of good governance, where it truly belongs. With you by my side, it is possible! Long Live Oyo State!”
