The governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Oyo State, Chief Bolaji Ayorinde, has said that he would apply a much more innovative approach in the education sector of the state if elected into office.
He said this on Friday at Igangan town, headquarter of Ibarapa North West Local Council Development Area while addressing newsmen after the governorship campaign flag off of his party.
While lamenting that the current state of education in Oyo State was saddening, Ayorinde promised to give 20 per cent of the state’s budget to the sector. He also promised to appoint three commissioners of education.
His words: “Twenty percent of the budget will be on education.
“We will have three commissioners for education. One for primary school education, another for secondary school education and the third for tertiary education.”
The governorship candidate also condemned the TraderMoni Scheme of the Federal Government saying “Ten thousand naira cannot do anything for traders.”
He said his party has a better package for business owners, traders and artisans if voted into office.
“We will set up cooperative structures that can actually solve the problems of traders,” he promised. “The structure has been tested and trusted all over the world.”
Ayorinde, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, advised the people of the state to unite against vote buying and selling.
“Hold your PVC and sell it to no one. Do not sell your votes and your future. We will not permit vote rigging,” he said
