The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the 2023 polls in Oyo state, Senator Teslim Folarin, Monday said stakeholders in the state asked him rescue the state from imminent collapse.
The APC governorship candidate pointed out that for more than three years, all areas of governance in Oyo state have largely been kissing the canvass.
He said: “Barely two years after the inauguration of the present administration in Oyo state, I was inundated with calls from critical stakeholders across all walks of life on the need to rescue our dear state from the claws of the most visionless government in the history of the Pacesetter state with a view to moving the state forward for growth and development.
“For more than three years, all areas of governance in Oyo state have largely been kissing the canvass. From all indices, it is apparent our people, instead of enjoying dividends of democracy, are suffering from a government in which institutional rigidity, exclusiveness, pervasive insecurity, policy summersaults, monumental debt and inoperable economic ideas reign supreme.”
