*says Oyo State needs transformation


By; BBAYO AKAMO, Ibadan

A leading All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Oyo State, Engineer Hakeem Oyedele Alao has declared that his ambition is not a do or die affair.
Engineer Alao made this known in Ibadan during a chat with journalists at his campaign office on the 2023 general election.
The APC governorship aspirant pointed out that Oyo State presently needs an experienced and competent hand to transform the state to where it rightly belonged, saying, ” I have a blueprint to transform Oyo State. 
” We have got a governor who has not constructed a single industry. The only industry he has constructed so far is bus terminals. How many of the residents would love to send their children to garage school? You know the cost of each of these garages”, he said.
Engineer Alao added, ” currently, there is problem in the state. There is insecurity as security of lives and property of the citizens are not guaranteed. Also, there is corruption in the state. I have been the only vibrant opposition in Oyo state”
” All the companies in Oyo State are dead and moribund. Companies in the state need subvention for resuscitation. This is for the betterment of the society. We have got a government that has not been doing much for the state”.
Engineer Alao maintained that since he rejoined APC in 2021, ” I have been working tirelessly for the party. I have also been engaging people in the state to know the challenges they are facing. I have a blueprint to transform Oyo state”.
” I have joined APC to vie for the Governor of Oyo State. I have obtained nomination form to the tune of N50 mllion.  I heard when Senator Rasheed Adewolu Ladoja said they are encouraging corruption because of the price of the form. Yes, to some extent they are, but I believe the leadership of the party wants to know who is serious”, 
Engineer Alao said, ” I have the utmost believe that after the whole exercise has been completed, the president will return half of the money back because he did similar thing after the party National Convention. If it is lesser, we wouldn’t know those that are serious. As at the time I went to obtain the nomination form, I am the number one on the list from Oyo State.
” I have second address and I have legitimate work that I am doing. I am spending from my sweat. Most of the aspirants don’t have private practice. So, where did they get the money? If we don’t go back to the drawing board, this state will continue to be the way it is. People are really suffering in the state. The current government promised free education, where is the free education? Salary payment is not an achievement. Makinde-led government has acquired over N160b worth of loan with nothing to showcase. Nobody to challenge Seyi Makinde.
” If I become the Governor of Oyo state, I’ll make things to work. My first target is free primary education. There is thrive and confusion currently within the party, but we will resolve it. More so, where we have issue is at the top level. 
“Over the last three months, there have been a lot of reconciliation meetings, and I have also appealed to the stakeholders for resolution. I believe that within short period of time everything will be resolved and we are going to unseat the current government,” he assured.
