A governorship aspirant under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state, Dr. Kola Balogun has urged the electorates in the state to elect men and women of impeccable character for the state to witness more developments and progress in education, health care, Agriculture, Infrastructure, Investment promotion, trade and Industry, Empowerment, Labour and productivity and Security of life and property.
The ex-Commissioner for Commerce and Cooperatives, Balogun, stated this on Tuesday in his Democracy Day message to the people of the state.
Felicitating with Nigerians and the people of the state on the occasion of the 19th year anniversary of democracy in Nigeria, the APC chieftain recalled with nostalgia that Oyo state has once served as a good reference point for other states in the past but lost the position due to bad leadership.
Speaking further, he, however, posited that only credible, competent and trustworthy candidate among the aspirants of the various political parties jostling for the governorship position can keep the state going in wealth creation and employment generation.
“As we mark another anniversary of democracy today, I am using this opportunity to felicitate with all Nigerians and the good people of Oyo State in particular as we celebrate the 19th year of democracy.
“Our state in the past has been a reference point and good example for other states in the areas of education, the bedrock of development in any society, we are the first in health, agriculture, commerce and industry but we got wrong at some points due to bad leadership.
“As we await the next general elections in 2019, it becomes extremely important for the good people of Oyo State to elect credible individuals to various political offices”, Balogun said.
