The incumbent Governor of Osun State and All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, has described his opponents in the forthcoming gubernatorial election as kindergarten politicians that cannot be trusted with the state resources.
Governor Oyetola said Osun state is too sophisticated to be governed by politicians that have little or no experience in governance who are seeking to experiment with the state.
The governor said this at the Palace of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, during the flag-off of his re-election campaign on Thursday in Ile-Ife.
Oyetola who noted that he does not have money to purchase private jets for traditional rulers or hard currencies to splash around on citizens, said he is endowed with the capacity to transform the state through good governance.
The governor who is known by the people of the state to be very calm and well educated said because he is a man of peace and a believer in the fact that politics is not a do-or-die affair, he is not interested in a fire-for-fire approach to politics.
In his words:
“I am happy that the Ooni knows that I have good intentions to govern this State.
“The modest achievements of our administration and the wide acceptance from our people in the last three and half years will showcase our capabilities.
“What we have done across sectors is evident for people to see.
“We have proved to our people that Osun is in safe hands in view of the equitable distribution of resources that had culminated into the development that our people have been witnessing in the nooks and crannies of the state.
“As you all know, a state like Osun is too sophisticated for kindergarten politicians to govern. It is costly to allow such people to experiment with Osun,” he said.
Oyetola attributed the decision to flag off his re-election campaign in Ife to the strong successes and victories the town had brought to his party in the past elections.
Oyetola, who highlighted some of his achievements across various sectors, promised that his administration would not relent in delivering democratic dividends for all and sundry.
In his address of welcome, the Senate Spokesperson and Director-General of the Osun APC Campaign Council, Sen. Ajibola Basiru, described the decision to flag off the campaign in Ife as symbolic and strategic.
According to him, the good works of Oyetola and the prayers he had received from Ife will earn him victory in the July 16 governorship election.
