Guber aspirant pledges sustainable development, good governance in Ogun
A gubernatorial aspirant in Ogun State, Prof. Muhammad Omoloja, has urged voters to look out for visionary leaders in the political sphere to move the country forward.Omolaja, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), contended that the world was moving fast and the country must meet up with its pace, stressing that education, security and job creations among others should be the focus of any government.
He observed that unless these sectors were given utmost attention, it would not pave the way for the masses to have a lifelong learning and vocational skills, leading to human capital development (HCD) in the state.
Omolaja, who hails from Ogun west senatorial district, said the incumbent, Mr. Ibikunle Amosu, has won his support, pledging to continue with the good works of the governor.He said his agenda has been captured in the acronym, OGUN REJOICE, remarking that with that the state would be in a pole position for growth and development.
While recommending that the party’s standard bearer must be able to seek advice, suggestions and even criticisms from various sources and consider them, he said the candidate should make use of those inputs “on the basis of the outcomes of his own judgment, inner will and initiative.”He added: “He must be able to carry people along in his programmes, respect their opinions and see situations as they come from the other people’s point of view to the optimal advantage of his administration.
“A person who will be able to forge ahead despite the possibility of mountains of problems and challenges of the highest magnitude. Someone who will see problems as challenges to overcome and not as obstacles or bottlenecks. He must be able to cooperate and collaborate with people that matter across all sectors both locally and at the international level as much as possible rather than doing it alone.”
He highlighted his agenda for the state to include, open administration, good governance, upgrading infrastructures, new networking, rural and Uuban development, ensuring qualitative education, job creation, youths development and empowerment, invitation of international direct investment, crime control and economic empowerment.
