A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in Osun, Barr Kunle Adegoke(K-rad) has presented his manifesto to the leadership of the party, describing it as "solution to the clog in the wheel of good governance" in the state.

Barrister Kunle Adegoke, who arrived the party secretariat located along Gbongan/Ibadan road on Thursday with hundreds of his loyalists and supporters saying he was determined to succeed Governor Rauf Aregbesola by winning the September 22nd gubernatorial election.

He expressed readiness to continue from where Aregbesola would stop, saying decision to contest for the number one seat is because of the passion he has which is to give back to the people of his state.

K-rad said, "I have taken my time to put up this manifesto and he took me not not less than six months before I could finish it.

"In the manifesto is the solution to all what it perceived to be a clog in the wheel of good governance."

Enumerating some of the vital information embedded in the manifestos, the legal practitioner said his administration would be centered on four key agenda of economic revatilisation, education, infrastructural development and tourism.

The starting point, according to Barrister Kunle Adegoke was  creative financial engineering, saying Osun’s continued reliance on Abuja for funding is dangerous, adding that the state must critically look inward.

He said,  “What we will use to develop Osun is available in Osun and we will harness the potentials.

"The solution is not automatic. It requires painstaking effort, a great deal of commitment, cooperation of residents, patience and sacrifice. “N10 billion Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) monthly can be achieved."

Taking a cue from the federal government’s efforts, the aspirant said the route to economy recovery is agriculture.

“We must revive the old farm settlements of the Awolowo era. We have the land. We should engage in food production and preservation. Lagos and parts of Ogun State closer to Lagos need our foods from Osun. Agriculture will fetch us money for development.

"Also, Osun is naturally endowed as a vast tourist centre. In the Southwest, no other state can boast of the same tourist sites. Look at Olumirin Water falls. What about Erin-Ijesa Water Falls? We need to develop these sites and make them more income-yielding,” he added.

Adegoke (K-rad) promised to take Osun through the path of industrialization by establishing the largest clay, ceramics and granite industry because the raw materials are available.

“How do we want to create jobs? I0,000 jobs annually for graduates are possible through investment in agriculture,” he said.

Responding, Osun APC chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun, commended kunle Adegoke for showing interest in the affairs of the state, assuring that the party leadership would be fair to the aspirants.
