Lawal said his manifesto, which focuses on Agriculture, Women Empowerment, Economic Empowerment and Human Capital Development(AWEH), shall be deployed to redirect the state’s economy, for better prospect and standards of living for the populace.
Lawal, who flagged off his campaign on Wednesday , said the experience of now has shown vividly that the electorate must have a rethink and vote the right person during the gubernatorial race.
The LP Candidate was ushered into the state via Akure-Ikere route with large crowd of party supporters, who described him as the most qualified to lead Ekiti in the coming election.
Addressing journalists at his campaign office in Ado Ekiti, Lawal promised to bring his experience as a retired Director from the Ekiti State Ministry of Education and Technology to bear to make Ekiti a pride of place.
He promised that the five and eight month salary arrears of civil servants and pensioners respectively shall be paid within six months he assumed office in the state.
“The level of unemployment is becoming embarrassing. Recently, the leadership of commercial motorcyclists revealed that over 5,000 Okada riders in Ekiti are graduates, that was not a cheery news.
