The Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Bisi Kolawole, has promised to tackle the security problem in the state headlong to make the state attractive to investors.
According to Kolawole, the security issue in the state has been hindering the efforts to attract investors to the state.
He further stated that attracting investment to the state would create job opportunities and raise its revenue to meet the needs for infrastructures development and other needs.
Kolawole vowed to return the confidence of the people of Ekiti in farming, adding that he would commence the stomach infrastructure policy of the former governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose.
The governorship candidate stated this during an interactive session with his supporters in Ado Ekiti in preparatory to the takeoff of a statewide political campaign.
He said, “I am seeking this position with a strong pedigree as a former legislator and former commissioner. I am going to be people-centric. All my activities will be centred around the people. If your people cannot cheer you as a governor, you are just a mere visitor, stranger, and expatriate.
“I will create a security-conscious environment to restore confidence in our people to go back to the farms. Never again will Ekiti people be kidnapped on the roads or the farms nor will they be sacked or killed on the farms. When there is security, investors will come to establish industries. Then, government revenue will increase. Our people will be employed.”
On the stomach infrastructure policy, he said, “It is a good policy. Our people must enjoy the dividends of democracy. Nothing stops a governor from giving out part of the food in the Government House to feed the commoners.”
Kolawole added, “Some parts of the state, including Ekiti East, Gbonyin and Ekiti West have been in darkness for a decade. If Biodun Oyebanji, the APC candidate, who had been Secretary to the State Government could not solve the problem of electricity in his Ikogosi country home and Ipole, would he now be able to solve some of the problems confronting Ekiti?”
