Action Congress of Nigeria governorship candidate for the October 20 election in Ondo State, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, has promised to create 30,000 jobs if elected.
A statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Idowu Ajanaku, on Wednesday, said the former Nigerian Bar Association Chairman intended to create the jobs in his first 100 days in office.
Ajanaku said Akeredolu gave the directive during the beginning of his campaign in Akoko South-West.
He said, “In furtherance to my promise, I urge youths with qualified papers to submit their CVs to my campaign office in Akure. A special desk has been created for it.
“I am determined to take our youths riding Okada out of the streets if elected by October by the special grace of God. It has been done in Osun, Oyo and Ekiti; Ondo State will do more because we are richer than those States.”
Akeredolu, according to the statement, also said road network would be a major pillar of his government as roads would be constructed in Akoko area to open up the area for development
“Akoko is a pride of Ondo State it is unfortunate that despite the fact that the deputy Governor Ali Olanusi is from the area, the entire Akokoland has been neglected by Mimiko government,” he added.
