An aspirant in the Ondo State governorship race representing the Labour Party (LP), Prince Eniola Joseph Ojajuni, has articulated his motivations for seeking employment, emphasizing his potential to make significant contributions to the state’s development.

In a press release issued in Akure on Friday, the politician and entrepreneur, who hails from Ilaje, stressed the importance of addressing the challenges confronting the state by harnessing the innovative ideas of young individuals.

He said, “I have seen the plight of my people. Governance has been mere trials, and we all know that things can be far better than what they are today.”

“I am here to make a difference; to deliver the visible dividend of the democracy in the health sector, educational, agricultural, transportation, technology, infrastructure and to alleviate poverty through production and friendly regulatory environment to micro small and medium enterprises. I understand where the shoes pitch because l started with a humble beginning. I have helped several women, children, and men who seek support in different ways.”

He furthered, “I have set up a scholarship scheme to assist students across the 18 Local Government Areas of Ondo State. The scholarship programme admits the indigenes of Ondo State into the Pan African College of Education in Kwara state.”

Speaking on why he is credible enough to be governor, the investment consultant said, “I will use my vast experience as a consultant to the then Oceanic Bank on investment banking and consultant to the metropolitan bank on investment and strategy to expand the scope of businesses and investment in the state.

“I would engage with industry and institutional players to design the implementation of the proposed reforms, to entrench the rule of law, aggressively fight corruption, while we are focused on cost reduction and streamlining of government operations for efficiency and effectiveness, we will ensure that the implementation of the reforms is pursued in a way that protects the livelihood of our hardworking and efficient civil servants.

“My government will pursue aggressive digitization of all judiciary, government, and regulatory agencies to curb corruption and improve governance outcomes and service delivery.
We will drive good and effective governance to create a culture that influences the bureaucracy of government to support the private sector. We will instil a culture of full implementation of government policies and plans to incentivise the private sector and prevent activities that curtail the development of society.

“My government will reactivate and digitalise this allimportant institution to drive responsible and accountable public financial management in governance.

“My government will expand Ondo’s tax base. The tax system and database will be harmonised in the State Internal Revenue Service (SIRS). The populace will be educated and oriented towards perceiving paying taxes as a contribution to the development of the state.
