A medical doctor, Mojisola Kolade , has joined the race for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State .
She declared her intention on Thursday at the state secretariat of party in Ajilosun , Ado Ekiti.
She promised that her government would deal with rapists and those subjecting minors to all forms of abuses to sanitise the state .
Speaking at the event , the APC Deputy Chairman , Mrs . Kemi Olaleye , urged the women to support the female contestant during the primary .
Olaleye said , “ If you check the political history of our dear country , you will see that women like Mrs. Biodun Olujimi , and Mrs. Remi Tinubu have done us proud with their contributions on the floor of the Senate , so it is wrong to say women lack the capacity to govern.
“ At the international scene, ex – Liberian President , Mrs. Johnson Sirleaf; Queen Elizabeth of England and many others also proved that women could do it better . ”
Kolade promised to ensure that no child in Ekiti was subjected to any form of abuse like rape , hawking and slavery with her in the saddle .
“ It is no gainsaying the fact that Ekiti are well – educated people , but no industries for them to work and this is sad. I will revamp our moribund industries to serve as impetus to our youths to go to schools.
