.
Many people. Have been waiting for you since over this days in other to have physical chart with about your political ambition as one of the governorship aspirant sir. Why many youths had already prepared question for you sir to be answer by voice note sir.
Hope you are ready to answer the question been send here sir ?.

QUESTION 1

There is recent call that we need to go back to investing in Agriculture; how do you think Ondo State government can generate revenue via agriculture?

From : MR BENSONEMURE OWO LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

Agriculture is the currency of any Serious State because of the need to feed ourselves and drive our development from within
But over the years, Many Governments have paid lip service to it and the result is that we tilt towards a monolytic economy dominated by Oil earnings. Consequently, we become susceptible to fluctuations in oil prices and our oil revenues have conditioned us to what I call a Lazy State. This is why, there is neglect in many sectors of the economy
Studies have shown that the most developed economies are self-sufficient in terms of food production.

My plan is to launch an agro-revolution by leading from the Front through the Ministry of Agriculture direct farming programme . Where we acquire lands and farm with modern tools like it is done in Isreal.
Cocoa is one Area where we have comparative advantage. We are going to revolutionalize cocoa farming and complete the value chain by moving into manufacturing using cocoa inputs. This will be done by a PPP arrangement.

Observation from MR Hassan

Sir,my name is Hassan,it affordme a great pleasure to be hereWith deu respect sir what do you mean by the ppp arrangements and how will that boost the economy of our dear state.thanks.

Hon.reply.

I have cognate experience in the Agriculture Sector having served as commissioner of agriculture under Former Governor Adebayo Adefarati
I am also a farmer who hardly buy food crops outside because of sufficient supply from my farm.

Thank you very much

PPP means Public Private Partnership.
Because of inadequacy in resources, Govt must partner with private sector for Direct Productive activities and social overheads so as to generate the needed input to drive growth. In Ondo State today, I do not think that there is a single One Stop Investment Shop (OSIS) where private investors can access funds, facilities and partnership opportunities.

Question 2.

Precisely on the first of September where there was massive downpour that led to flood that rendered many homeless. What measures do you think government should take to forestall reoccurrence?

From: MR AKIN JOSEPH.

ILAJE LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

Flooding is a very big problem all over the country. Although it is a natural disaster, but human activities trigger the chances of its occurrence.
First, we need to enlighten the public to avoid erecting buildings along flood plain so as to prevent disasters when there is flooding
Secondly, we must impose consequences on people who dump refuses in Drainage.
Third, we must construct bridges and drainages properly when there is road construction.
We are going to build affordable housing to serve as new homes for those living in flood prone arreas.
When Elected, My Govt will from time to time, address blockage of gutters and do the needful. We can even concession it to private individuals and pay them in return if they keep it free.
In our Riverine arrears, we are going to build proper defences in the shorelines to serve as buffers for any possible overflow due to currents.

Question.

What is your plan sir for the Tourism sector in ondo state Omoba AdewoleoyeIdanre local government.

Thank God this question is coming from someone from Idanre.
One of the eye catching festivities in Ondo State is the Mare in Idanre. My Government will invest heavily in tourism. We are going to start the tourism drive from within. We must first get some certain things right before we delve into tourism. We need infrastructures and adequate security. There will be a holistic plan for tourism beyond mere festivals.

Question 3

On youths empowerment; has the present government fulfilled all righteousness? If yes; what are those areas?

 

 

 

From: MR GIDEON

IRELE LOCAL GOVERNMENT

With due respect sir, I always exercise a great deal of self-restrain From commenting on the policies of the Govt of Governor Akeredolu

I am known for empowering people, that is the driving force of my political sorjourn thus Far
Sports, Education, Skills and Employment are the tools to empower the youths. My government will place priority on it
I intend to launch a skill scout throughout the State to discover the new generations of Olympic Gold medalists for Nigeria
We must focus on Qualitative sports. I believe we have quality footballers in Ondo State who can be better than Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. What they need is a genuine commitment from helpers
Our graduates will be gainfully employed and we are not going to retrench workers.

Audience comment
Sir ,what plans have you on the not too young to run bill
And will you promote the youths in your government by appointing them if elected.

Youth empowerment begins from making education affordable
I will reduce the tuition fees paid by students from all Higher Institutions owned by the State Government by 100%.

Point of Correction, it is no longer a bill
It is now the law in Nigeria
As someone who is under the supremacy of the constitution, I cannot do anything outside the ambience of the Law
I owe the youths in high esteem and I believe they are leaders of now
When we say, leaders of tomorrow, we are simply saying they should sit down now ND wait for their Time
I will make sure that my cabinet is made up of youths. They will take 75% of my appointments.
I have young boys under me and I want them to take leadership positions
I will support young people.

Question 4

During the regime of Hon As commissions for agriculture what development have him bring to ondo state agriculture sector and his impact on youth in agric sector?

From:COMR OMOTOLA ALABA OLAMI JUNIOR .FROM Okitipupa local Govt

As Commissioner for Agric, I enhanced the generation of revenue from Cocoa for over 100% increase
We brought millions on cocoa seedlings to Ondo State
We became a leading Cocoa state in Nigeria
We granted loans to cassava farmers for the production of cassava despite the short time I spent in the ministry.

We trained young people on agriculture with modern tools and sponsored them to the State of Isreal.
But unfortunately, this programme was short lived because Agagu eventuality took over from Adefarati

We gave farmers cocoa seedlings, cashew and other crops free of charge
And we supported them.

I was a member of National Cocoa Board, we advised the govt on best ways to commercialize our local production whilst protecting our farmers from exploitation by foreign partners.

Observation from audience
What’s your plan towards Making education affordable in Ondo State sir.
By FEMI Adegbeyeni. From AAUA

Certainly
I am a father with kids in school within Ondo state here
It saddens me as a concerned parent to see the exorbitant fees paid by students.
I also pay for my children education in AAUA
I know what it used to be before and what it is now
I will reduce the tuition fee drastically
This will not stop the subventions
No student will have to drop out of school due to tuition fee
In all our tertiary institutions, we will work towards being one of the first few states that will actualize free education.

Question 5.

My Question for today’s Guest.

What do you have as manifesto that makes you better than the sitting Governor?

 

ODEYEMI Sunday E. From Uso, Owo L.G.A.

I am R. O Kazeem
Not Akeredolu

I have obliged you much of my time tonight to allow you have a peep through my plans for Ondo state.
It is an organic plan beyond what we have now
And much of my engagement with you tonight touch on some points in my manifesto.

QUESTION 6.

My question is,once Idanre kingdom has a tourist scenic center and a lot of resources that replenish government purse,why has the government been lagging behind in providing industries and institutions either to strengthen the production or to reinforce the town’s glory?

From:PRINCE OLANIYI OLASUNKANMI ,IDANRE LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

I am very conversant with Idanre very well
I know a handful of people there who can suggest ways through which the State can resuscitate the lost glory of that City
I know of Chief Akintan (The Ojomu of Idanre) a man who has Idanre in his heart. I am like an adopted Idanre son

But beyond just focusing on Idanre, I will give fair attention to all towns and places within Ondo State.

Question 7.

Given the essentiality and developmental guides as stated in the Global agenda for creating a better future for all.Achieving the Global goals in Ondo state will solve Almost all socio-economic problems Sir in the State, as the agenda stands as a mother to solving all social problems.How do you intend to accelerate the process of achieving the 17 sustainable development goals in Ondo state?

Thanks.

Tosin Orimolade: Akoko North East (Ikare)

I happen to be part of those who shape global debates on sustainable development in the world
Sustainable development goes beyond growing the economy and earning money
It involves tangible socio-economic renaissance
In Ondo state, First we must deal with environmental hazards flowing from oil explorations in our riverine arrears
Secondly, we will create green jobs across many sectors by leveraging on our human resource in the diaspora
We will deal with inequality by reviewing salaries of political office Holder and increase the salaries of workers
We will tackle insecurity.

We will encourage freedom of speech and dignity of human persons
We will be proactive and dynamic in bringing about apt solutions to the myriad of problems we Face.
One thing which my government will do is to resuscitate the dead industries in Ondo State.
Olokola, Olunwa Glass and a host of others will come back to life
We are going to prioritize government involvement in the arrear of Bitumen exploration
We have the second largest deposit at Agbagbu, we must bring it to life.
Part of my engagement will be to partner with Federal Government to get licence to run it.We must use the advantage of being in the mainstream to secure a better position for Ondo State. Why are we in APC if we cannot make good use of federal government patronage to our gains?
This Present Govt has not done that to our satisfaction
Instead, He is busy fighting his party and creating discord.

LAST QUESTION.

How can we survive choosing the right candidate in ondo state come next election, with the current situation of election in nigerian?Do will still have truthful democracy?

FROM :Akinsowon Abiola Danbaba : idanre local government

One thing about Ondo State is the resilience of our people
We always set the standards in Nigeria
Our democracy cannot be traded on the alter of partisanship
I believe strongly in one Man one vote
I don’t have any political God father
I believe in God and I also believe that the true mandate comes from the people
That is why I am talking to you the people.
To give me your support and let us walk the glorious path to our development in grand style.

I believe in the Integrity of INEC and the doggedness of Nigerians particularly Ondo State indigenes.
A Great sage did say that every generation, out of its relative obscurity, will discover its mission, whether to fulfill it or to betray it
We have a mission at hand
It is the interest of our dear state. We cannot fail.

Once again sir we are happy to have you here sir, as one of our special guest tonight , we really appreciate you sir, for the little time been spend with us here sir, Once again from the desk of all the media aids of this platform we say big thank to you sir.

Ondo State must shine again with your support and my support.

Thank you sir.

It has been a great deal of honor to have interacted you all
Thank you very much for having me
I am very grateful.

A Great sage did say that every generation, out of its relative obscurity, will discover its mission, whether to fulfill it or to betray it
We have a mission at hand
It is the interest of our dear state. We cannot fail.
