Governorship Candidate, Justice Must Prevail Party (JMPP) in Ogun State, Mr Ismail Oyefeso, on Tuesday, said he was in the race to address high level of poverty among the people.
Oyefeso spoke in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
“If I am elected the governor of Ogun state, I will set in motion the leading edge agenda that creates equal economic opportunity for the poor and the average in the state,” he said.
Governorship election is slated for March 2, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) timetable.

Oyefeso said it was disheartening that there had been unequal distribution of wealth in the state in spite of its enormous potentials.
“Development has not been sporadic so we have to expand development to the rural areas by involving people in our yearly budget planning.
“Economically, my plan is to create industrial clusters in each community across the Local Government Area (LGAs) as well as Local Council Development Areas (LCDA) of the state,” he said.
The 34-year-old candidate, who hails from Odoogbolu LGA, noted that the state had an active workforce of about 3.8 million and that 80 per cent of this is in the informal sector.
“What this group yearns for is a responsible government that will invest tremendously in them.
“And once that is done, I assure you that the state will take the lead in the comity of states in Nigeria,” he said.
He said his administration would focus on industrialisation, agriculture and manufacturing by domesticating mini cluster across communities, “converting our higher institutions to productive development institutions and investing in youth through entrepreneurship and technology.”
“I will create health and wellness centres in every community as a palliative to support the aging primary healthcare, as well as develop our tourism potential.
“To achieve all of these, we will engage various development partners on the basis of Public Private Partnership (PPP) instrument that will bring the positive change for the people of the state,” he said.
Oyefeso, who is the Executive Director, Nigeria Youth in Politics and Chief Executive Officer, Exposure Multimedia Consult, said it was time young Nigerians take over the leadership of the country with the advent of the Not-Too-Young-To-Run Act.( NAN)
