Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate for Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State, Chief Olusola Oke, has said his goal is to “rescue the state from waste and corruption”.
Oke said this while speaking with reporters during his rally in Akure, on Monday.
According to him, what the people of the state have experienced in the last three-and-a-half years under the Olusegun Mimiko administration is “punishment and pain”.
He said, “Today we have sealed our pact with the people. Before the President of this nation, dignitaries in Nigeria and in my state we have shown readiness to take my people out of gutless hypocrisy and decadence to which all have been held hostage in the last three and a half years. Our hands are already on the plough and there is no looking back,” Oke said.
“We need to get into prosperity. That is why we need so badly a good government we can trust. By the grace of God, my party will produce that government.”
He described the Mimiko administration as ‘an error of history” that people are poised to correct on Saturday.
Oke said, “A government must not ally itself with power a gainst the powerless. It must give hope, courage and confidence to the people. Mimiko has taken all the time and resources of this state to celebrate himself and mediocrity. He has offended the people.”
