Bankole Taiwo, Abeokuta
A minister with popular Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM and ex-council boss of Odogbolu local government, Sir Tope Tokoya yesterday at Ogun NUJ secretariat, Abeokuta declared his ambition to contest for the exalted seat of the governor of Ogun state on the platform of Accord Party in 2019.
The consensus governorship candidate also declared that the desire of his party to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state would not be sacrificed on the altar of recent coalition of opposition parties with PDP including Accord Party saying that his party has all it takes to single handedly prosecute its governorship ambition.
Otunba Tope Tokoya disclosed that since the brooms of APC have scattered and the umbrella of PDP is torn to shreds, Accord Party built on Integrity and fear of God is the only party that will use its various people oriented programmes to wipe away tears from the faces of residents of Ogun State.
He reeled out seven basic programmes cutting across revitalisation of local governments with a view to harnessing all the potentials for development, opening of rural roads, free education from primary to secondary schools, affordable and qualitative healthcare services, industrialization and job creation, agriculture among others as some of the tools his government would use to unlock the prosperity of the state and make the people happy once again.
Sir Tokoya said that as a very successful investment banker and reputable real estate developer among other achievements, his desire to rule the state was born out of passion to touch lives, make a positive difference and see smiles on the faces of people who hitherto had been subjected to too much anguish and bad governance.
He has therefore called on people of the state to support his governorship ambition for a new dawn in good governance, accountability and participatory democracy.
