He affirmed that the unemployed youths would be gainfully engaged while the education and health sectors would be upgraded and modernised.
His deputy governorship candidate, Mrs Modupe Daniels who hailed from Ogbomoso, promised the people that their administration would govern the state with probity, fairness and fear of God if given the mandate in the March 11 governorship poll.
Speakers at the event including Southwest Chairman of ADP, Elder Niyi Olatunji said the Ibadan-born party flag-bearer had managed financial institutions in Nigeria, Gambia and Sierra Leone as well as at different times, served as Special Advisers to former Governor Chief Rasheed Ladoja and the immediate past Minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu without any dent on his image and personality.
