An APC governorship aspirant in Ekiti , Sunday Adebomi, has pledged to tackle security challenges in Ekiti by coordinating the best security apparatus and intelligence agency, if elected.
Adebomi, who retired as captain in the United States Army, is vying for the governorship seat of APC in the state.
He made the pledge on Tuesday at an interactive session tagged: “My Agenda” under the auspices of the Ekiti Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ) in Ado-Ekiti.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ekiti governorship election is scheduled to hold on July 14, 2018.
Retired Capt. Adebomi joined 29 other aspirants vying for the APC ticket.
The govership aspirant said: “I did not go into politics for selfish gain.
“I am only contesting for governorship, because I understand my people.
“I want to serve them because I am ready to provide leadership and fight for our future.
“Security, safety and protection shall be the major focus.
“I will use my experience as a retired Captain of the United States of America Army to coordinate the best security apparatus that will liaise with the Nigerian Army and our national police force to make people of the state to live in peace.”
Adebomi also decried the economy and educational system in the state, describing the situation as “poor and unwarranted”.
“The economic situation of our state is poor; without the federal allocation, the state cannot survive.
“Unemployment and youth restiveness are visible; trust in the present government is low and the essentials needed to stimulate socio-economic development are lacking.
“Ekiti is known as the Fountain of Knowledge; therefore, we should continue to excel in all areas of human endeavour, be it economy, education and security among several other; we should continually come first.
“But, the situation we have found ourselves is unfortunate; in all these areas, Ekiti has been lagging behind and I think it is time for us to take our pride of place, ” he said.
The APC governorship aspirant further pledged to make agriculture the key driver of the state’s economy and the source of new jobs for youths.
Adebomi said that he would do everything possible to empower and encourage new generations of farmers and support commercial agriculture by creating better access to land use, farm inputs and machinery.
The retired captain said that an enabling environment would be created for youths, women, artisans, aged and trade unions by giving them unhindered opportunities to excel and contribute to the growth of the state economy.
He also promised to pursue policies that would encourage and support entrepreneurs to establish industries and businesses in the state.
Adebomi said that this would pave way for the much needed economic growth and jobs creation for youths.
