Ahead of the forthcoming Governorship election of Ondo state, a leading aspirant of ruling the All Progressives Congress (APC), Isaac Kekemeke has vowed to unseat Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu with the view to redirect government in the state. Mr. Kekemeke who was the pioneer Chairman, APC, in the state, spoke to journalists at the weekend in Akure while reeling out his intention to join the guber race.
According to Kekemeke, Governor Akeredolu does not understand and know the needs of the people in Ondo state hence his under-performance.
Kekemeke therefore promised to fill the gaps of the incumbent governor, if elected in the forthcoming governorship election.
While commenting on his plan to regig all sectors in the state, Kekemeke said he is going to introduce free and compulsory education for pupils from primary one to five in all public schools across the all 18 local government areas of Ondo State.
“If I elected as Governor of this state, we are going to introduce free and compulsory education programme for all our pupils from primary one to five because basic education is necessity.
“We are going to refocus our Technical Schools for learning and there will be good scholarship for our students. Government must be responsible at all time”, he said.
The former Secretary to the State Government also promised that Ondo State will have it own Pharmaceutical company that will be producing drugs.
He explained that the idea behind the Pharmaceutical drug company will be another way of engaging Ondo teeming unemployment youths in the state.
The APC chieftain also commented on the in-house crisis rocking the party saying this is time for the party members to come together and agree not to pull down the party.
He said, “I want to appeal to leaders of our great party not to take any step or make any statement that will pull down the party. Those promoting disunity are the enemy of the party and we don’t want that, we must leave in harmony, peace and unity. “Ondo state is APC state and we are going to win the forthcoming governorship election”.
