One of All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirants, Owodunni Opayemi,has disclosed that he’s committed to redefining education in Ogun State if elected as Governor.
The 61 year-old politician pointed out that he’s prepared a scheme that would help to promote the state’s education in order to give it a facelift for the betterness of the people.
“Education is going to be my first priority in the state because I was a beneficiary of the scholarship scheme of the first executive Governor of Ogun State, Chief Victor Olabisi Onabanjo. I applied for the Ogun State scholarship when I was in second year Architecture undergraduate at the University of Lagos and I was offered. Besides, I was also a recipient of the Federal government’s scholarship during my first year at the University of Lagos”, he said.
“My interest is to serve my motherland. If I had wanted to make myself available for a ministerial slot I would have done so, but the people that know much about me have beckoned on me to jettison the ministerial position idea and opt for the governorship seat where I can directly touch the lives of the people of Ogun State.
“So, that is why I have made myself available for the upcoming 2019 Ogun State governorship race. I want to govern Ogun State and turn things around for the good. Our people in Ogun State should allow the right person drive the public sector”, said Opayemi.
