Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka (GNI) has sought the support of Egba traditional Council over his bid to contest the 2019 governorship election on the platform of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
Isiaka said his bid to govern the State is borne out of his conviction that there is enough resources to make Ogun great again.
The ADC standard-bearer who was in the company of several high profile party chieftains including Chief Joju Fadairo, Akogun Pegba Otemolu, Senatorial candidate, Rt. Hon. Titi Oseni-Gomez among others, affirmed that having contested twice in 2011 and 2015, his resolve at governing the State remains strong.
He also appreciated past governors of the state and the incumbent especially for the infrastructural development in Abeokuta, the state capital, noting however that the State has enough resources to create a life of abundance for the entire citizenry.
“As your son, I am here to inform you my father’s that I will be contesting for governor of Ogun State in 2019. I am also here for your prayers. I am contesting again in 2019 under the ADC. I believe that there is something God wants me to add to this state. Our state is very great in all ramifications. There’s no part of the state that you can’t get human resources, human capital, and natural endowments. We have been able to put together an economic blueprint that will usher in a world of abundance for our good people.
“We thank all our governors who have governed this State from its creation till now, but i must say that we are far from where we should be considering our potential and the enormous resources in the state. My aim is to achieve those additional edges so that we can leave our State better than we met it.” he said.
While reeling out his plans for the State,
the governorship hopeful identified quality and affordable education, quality health care, job creation, infrastructural development, adding that the good people of Ogun State will enjoy a life of abundance under his watch
Continuing, he said “It is not enough to have a beautiful manifesto, what is important is the heart of the man that wants to lead. I have been in public glare since 16 years. I want to serve this state because I believe this state can move forward.”
In his remarks, the Alake sued for the success of Isiaka’s ambition, appealing to him not to forget the people when he becomes governor. The monarch also prayed that Isiaka, akin to President Muhammadu Buhari who became President after three failed attempts will win the election in 2019.
