Ogun AAC Guber Candidate Flags Off Campaign, Promises To Bring Back Lost Glory

ABEOKUTA – The governorship candidate of African Action Congress AAC in Ogun state, Hon. Adeyemi Harrison on Sunday flagged off his campaign and inaugurated campaign Committee in each Local Government and constituency across Ogun State.

Hon. Adeyemi Harrison, a former member of the Ogun State House of Assembly while speaking with journalists said he was in the race to bring back the lost glory of Ogun State and to ensure not less than 10,000 youths of the state were employed every month in all districts, assuring that he would complete all the road projects embarked upon by former Governor Ibikunle Amosun across Ogun State.

Adeyemi added that his administration would also ensure that the local government autonomy was given, adding that it would enable the people from the grassroots to enjoy his political administration, particularly the traditional rulers.

Hon. Harrison faulted that in democratic parlance, whereby autonomy wasn’t given to the Local Government, there won’t be development.

He added that everyone has an input to the development of the State, maintaining that if the autonomy of local government was not granted, it would affect the traditional rulers to make meaningful contribution towards the development of their community.

He maintained that the failure of past political leaders in Ogun state, had prevented the youths from gaining employment, arguing that there were ample resources to build the youths of the state.

Hon. Harrison pointed out that part of his mission was to revive the nine reserves areas for Cotton, Rubber, and Timbers in the State, saying only one is functioning among the nine reserves while assuring that he would make education free at all the tertiary institutions in the state.

He stated that he would also make education free for tertiary institutions in Ogun state and also make sure both federal government roads and the state-owned roads in Ogun state are motorable.
