“Today, I stand humbly before you to affirm my participation in the governorship primary election of our great party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, slated for April 20, 2024.

“Also as National Examinations Council Board Chairman, pioneer APC State Chairman, and at present APC National Vice Chairman South-West, I have not let you down,” he said.

Kekemeke, who said that he was better equipped than he was four years ago, said he had a sole aim, to wit: “To make government seeable, touchable and feelable, so much so that the pain of one would be the pain of all.”

He stated that the progress of the state could only be realised through perceptive and deliberate efforts of party men, women and citizens who saw beyond the limiting haze of “prebendal politics” to the noble and elevating Ideals of development politics.

“The state cannot afford to amuse herself with bare pettiness, low sentiment and prejudices that have rudely arrested growth and development.

“Ondo State needs a leadership not only for a segment of the state but for the whole state,” he said.

The APC chieftain added that his agenda for prosperity and peace would ensure an industrial take-off of Ondo State through prioritised investment in human and natural endowment.

“We offer free and compulsory primary education, free secondary school education, highly subsidised tertiary education, quality health services for all including the establishment of a pharmaceutical company and the “Ibile” hospital.

“Our program includes availability of food and employment opportunities through the civil farmer known as agbe olowo osu and the establishment of small scale agro-allied industries,” he added.
