An All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, Dr. Wole Oluyede, has been described as the right man to bring good governance and positive change, if entrusted with the mandate to lead the state from October 16, next year.
The Director-General of the Wole Oluyede Campaign Organisation, Hon. Folorunso Ogundele, in a statement, described the Ikere Ekiti-born medical practitioner as “the best man for the top job in 2018,” given his experience, pedigree, connection and passion for development.
Ogundele, a former House of Assembly member from Efon Constituency, said Oluyede’s exposure has prepared him for the task of governance, having worked in various countri, including the United States of America, Canada, the Caribbean and Australia.
He said Oluyede’s ambition was borne out of his desire to “reset the values Ekiti is known for, which is about bringing back genuine commitment to the public good, bringing back hard work, dignity, and bringing Ekiti back to its pride of place and reckoning in Nigeria”.
Ogundele said: “The feedback we are receiving from the grassroots has been positive about the Oluyede candidacy. This is a man who has always been with the people, he has a wide grassroots appeal.
“The people in Ekiti have been able to point out a salient point that gives Oluyede a high rank among the contestants. They said despite Oluyede’s far and wide travels across the world, he has essentially remained a Nigerian and an Ekiti man religiously, preserving and nurturing his roots.
“The mission of Oluyede for Ekiti is to reset the foundations of Ekiti-State by bringing back the recognition of dignity in hard work which serves as a basis for prosperity and delivered through well- thought out processes and comprehensive strategic framework.
“The Ekiti Oluyede envisages is the one that will be firmly positioned on the West African Map as the best African model for eco-tourism and large scale farming ventures.
“This would harness the natural advantage of Ekiti and make work more positively for its progress and in a manner that brings about sustainable livelihood and meaning for people particularly for the younger generation”.
The APC Chairman in Ekiti South Senatorial District, Hon. Babade Kayode, commended Oluyede for his support for the party and members in the zone.
Babade have the commendation during the party’s monthly senatorial meeting held at Ikere City Hall, Ikere-Ekiti, which was attended by party faithful from Ekiti Southwest, Ikere, Ise/Orun, Emure, Gbonyin and Ekiti East Local Government Areas which make up the district.
The party senatorial chair hailed Oluyede’s efforts in mobilizing party members from their wards to senatorial meetings which he has been doing consistently in the last six months. (TheNation)
