Senator Babafemi Ojudu who declared his intention to vie for the Gubernatorial seat in the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday has vowed to rid Ekiti State of its greatest political burden- Oshoko Epidemic.
Ojudu speaking to a mammoth crowd at the Okeyinmi, Ado Ekiti, said the time has come to rescue Ekiti State from its steady descent down the development ladder caused by the Oshoko Epidemic.
“Here we are today with a firm determination to challenge the deceivers and oppressors of our people, and relieve Ekiti people, especially the downtrodden of their burden.”
At the event witnessed by a mass turnout of enthusiastic party members and teeming supporters, Ojudu said he possesses the willpower and commitment to lay a new foundation that will re-model the state and make its teeming intelligentsia proud again.
He assured the people that he will not destroy their homes and markets and promised to make education the pride of Ekiti State once again. The state, he said, under his watch and other progressives will catch up with and surpass its glorious past.
“The power to make a difference lies within us as critical stakeholders. Together, we can make the change we desire.”
Ojudu promised to make his FINE agenda- Foster Economic Growth, Invest in the People, Nurture Enterprise, and Innovation and Ensure Wellbeing the cardinal point of his administration.
He appealed to the delegates to eschew any form of bickering and divisive rhetoric during the primaries and urged the electorates to vote massively for APC during the elections and ensure victory at the poll.
The declaration was lifted with the sterling performances of Fuji music star, Saheed Osupa who entertained the enthusiastic crowd alongside pop singer, Small Doctor before the throng of people moved to the State Secretariat of the party.
