JUNE 12: WHY I AM BRINGING HOPE TO ONDO PEOPLE
It is with great joy that I congratulate the entire People of Ondo State on this unique occasion of the celebration of Democracy day.
We must know that, it is more than a mere coincidence that I have set the day apart to revamp our hope in democracy by publicly declaring my mission to contest in the October 10 Governorship election in Ondo State using the platform of the Young Progressives Party.
I must state with emphasis that many States across Nigeria have a similar challenge of Leadership failure, but we must all combine the strength embedded in our education, exposure and innovation to bail our dear State out of leadership missteps that have characterised governance in Ondo; and place her in the forefront of scientific and solution based leadership.
It has always been my belief that a sane State can be created out of a seemingly confused Country if the citizenry agrees to put aside partisan considerations and religious sentiments to support a person of courage, character and competence.
I therefore use this opportunity to present myself as a credible alternative to the current crops of political leaders whose main agenda is to grab power for family use and amassment of wealth.
My team and I have come up with a development plan called the LEAP AGENDA to create a path of systemic development in the State.
Today, we as citizens must equally reflect on the sacrifices of our past Heroes and be courageous enough to face a direction that will ensure that the gain of representative government is enjoyed by all; irrespective of social status.
I once again present myself to fill the leadership gap in the sunshine State; even as I congratulate the people for the hope renewed.
DON DOTUN OJON
