“People want a positive change where education will take its rightful place. A positive change where products that cannot be sold in Osun can be taken to Lagos market to sell on free train service. A positive change where the economy of the state will have a positive turn-around. A positive change where the Governor will know that governance is 20% politics and 80% economy”.
“With these changes I have mentioned, I believe the best thing my party can do is to make me the PDP candidate and with that we will issues a quit notice to APC.
The Academician spoke deeply on how he will rebuild the economy of the state by using the California as his template.
