Babafemi Ojudu, special adviser to the president on political matters, has promised to probe the “useless government” of Ayo Fayose, if he is elected governor of the state.
Ojudu made his intention known while declaring his interest in the governorship race.
Addressing the crowd at Ado Ekiti, the state capital, where his declaration rally held, Ojudu promised to touch many lives.
“Today, I declare my desire to be the next governor of our state. Today, I ask you to join me in bringing sense back to our government house. Today, I ask you to join me in bringing better jobs to the state,” he said.
“I call on you indigenes and residents to join me aboard our train of progress. If you want a better life for your children, join us and let us make our state a pacesetter state. I know that the journey cannot be easy because we will have to climb mountains but our work will not be in vain.
“It’s time to vote out corrupt leadership in the state; it’s time to say bye bye to Fayose and his useless government.”
He promised that his administration would give priority to education, health, infrastructure, agriculture, asking, “With the resources that this state is endowed with, why are we so poor? Why are we this broke and have become a laughing stock? Why has our land become a land of grief and pains? Can we continue like this? No, we cannot. This is the reason why I am telling you that the time has come to rescue our state from the oppressors and the time has come for the voices of our people to be heard.”
The governorship aspirant said if elected, he would not demolish houses, but respect the traditional rulers, and pay workers’ salary, as well as pay pensioners’ allowances, and make life better for the people.
