Peoples Democratic Party candidate for the October 20 Ondo State governorship election, Olusola Oke, says the difference in political party will not stop him from relating well with his counterparts in the South-West if elected.
He said this during a programme organised by the state chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists for candidates in the election.
Oke said the difference in political party affiliation should not be a hindrance to mutual relationships among states with common interests.
He promised to relate well with other South-West governors on issues targeted at transforming lives of the people economically, socially, politically and in all spheres.
He said he was in a better position to develop the state going by experiences he had gathered in governance over the years.
Oke said he would take more advantage of being a product of transformation agenda of the Federal Government to transform Ondo.
He said the situation in the state was precarious because it had not enjoyed good relationship either with the South-West or the Federal Government.
Oke said, “My record of achievements as the commissioner that represented the state on the board of the Niger Delta Development Commission and the Chairman of the Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission has remained unbeaten to date.
“Like I did in NDDC and OSOPADEC, I would not engage in any activity that could result into capital flight from the state as the administration would ensure that contracts that do not require expertise would be given to local contractors.”
