A leading PDP House of Assembly aspirant in Ekiti State Constituency of Kwara State, Com. Adio Friday Odunjo have promised to upon swearing-in as a member of the House hit the ground running by ensuring that the alleviation of the suffering of his people remains uppermost in his mind, stressing that the time for merrymaking is over.
Adio who made this disclosure while unveiling his blueprint tagged *5 POINT AGENDA TO PROSPERITY*, to elders, party stakeholders and traditional rulers in the local government, hinged his plans on a 5 point Agenda, Security of lives and property through what I call ‘native policing’, Sponsorship of Youth, Employment and Entrepreneurship friendly bills, Health train which will at intervals move from one community to the other free of charge, Agriculture and Education.
In an agrarian local government with abundance of arable land largely fallow, high concentration of unengaged youth, then it is just natural crime rate will be at an astronomical increase.
He said “I have the advantage of being a youth armed with experience as one that wears the shoe, I know the unemployment index in my LG is a major kept of gunpowder, once we tackle unemployment through Agriculture, Youth engagement and entrepreneurship then we’ll have completely tackled almost 80 per cent of our afflictions.
” While the basic responsibility of an honourable member is lawmaking, I’ll ensure relevant laws towards ensuring the plight of the good people of my constituency is improved takes precedence in all my dealings at the House” he vowed.
