THE Governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party, SDP, Dr. Olu Agunloye has assured his readiness to improve the economy of the state, if elected.
Dr. Agunloye, who gave the assurance while addressing some political leaders in Akure, said he could not afford to disappoint leaders, who gave him their backing for the contest.
He said as a man of integrity with due respect for elders, he would use his wealth of experience as former minister of Power and Steel and the pioneer Controller General of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), to turn the state’s moribund economy around because “there will be more jobs for the youths as soon as more industries become operational.”
He also appealed to the people to shun money bag politicians who have no agenda for the people but are only pursuing their personal ambition.
One of the leaders, Major General Olushola Akinfolarin (retd) said that Agunloye has been tested and trusted as a man of integrity, who has been above board in all ramifications.
He told the people that governance under the administration of Dr. Agunloye will be truly ‘’for the people and by the people.’’
Also, the SDP Chairman , Chief Korede Duyile said the party made a thorough search for a credible candidate before Agunloye’s emergence.
