Osun 2018: ADP candidate pledges to complete Aregbesola's projects

Action Democratic Party (ADP) candidate in Saturday’s Osun governorship poll, Moshood Adeoti, has promised to complete all road projects initiated by the present administration in the state, if elected governor.

Addressing crowd of party supporters at a rally held at Nelson Mandela Freedom Park, Osogbo, Adeoti said he would also dialogue with the federal government regarding the slow pace of work on Osogbo/Ilobu/Ogbomoso road, Osogbo/Ila Odo road, as well as Osogbo/Ilesa.

He also promised to embark on construction of more roads across the state and ensure that full compensations were paid to all  those that lost properties to the construction of roads embarked upon by Governor Aregbesola.

As part of measures to stimulate the economy, Adeoti also said Orisumbare Market would be rebuilt to meet the present day needs of the people and also complete the abandoned Dagbolu Regional Market.

He also said the popular Ajegunle Spare Parts Markets would be developed, adding that at a meeting held with the traders in the market, vital decisions on how to further expand scope of business in the market have been worked out.

Adeoti further averred: “Our government will take care of the interests of the non indigenes in the state. We will make the state comfortable for them to live in. Women will also play prominent roles in our government.

“When I was in APC, we held a meeting that the least paid retiree would collect N10,000, but to my surprise, this was not implemented. If I am elected governor, I will ensure this is implemented.”

Addressing the rally, running mate to ADP governorship candidate, Prof. Adeolu Durotoye, berated those campaigning for continuity of the APC government.

According to him, whoever is pushing for continuity of the incumbent government, is advocating for continuity of hunger, half salary, suffering and capital flight and asked them to ensure that harsh economic condition current administration has put the state is brought to an end on Saturday.

He appealed to the electorate to disregard insinuations that ADP candidate, Alhaji Adeoti would return to APC, saying all the real progressive elements in both APC and PDP formed Action Democratic Party (ADP).

On the protracted issue of LAUTECH, Durotoye said ADP government would resolve the ownership crisis bedevilling the institution within one month of getting to power.

He said: “He said he is richer than Osun and was made Chancellor of LAUTECH, yet the owner crisis bedevilling the institution has remained unresolved.

“We will reverse same uniform policy introduced by the present administration. Clothing material sellers, fashion designers would have job to do, working on uniforms for our students.”
