Governor Gboyega Oyetola said he is confident of winning the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary and the July 19 governorship election in the state.
Oyetola said this on Wednesday during a “strategic tour” of Modakeke, Ife Central, and Ife East Areas of the state.
The governor added that he is not afraid of the election. He said he is optimistic about victory.
“We are not afraid and we are confident that we will win the party’s primary as well as the gubernatorial election.
“We don’t know the system they will bring. Whether direct or indirect, we are ready.
“I don’t have any reason to doubt you because I know that you are always in one place,” he said.
Besides, the governor promised that his administration would complete all the major projects before the end of his first term.
“I don’t make promises without fulfilling them. I have been hearing about Famia road since the time I was the Chief of Staff and I thank God that we have finished it now.
“We are set to begin another one. Your votes brought me in. I must show appreciation,” the governor said.
The governor pledged that he will not disappoint the people of Ile-Ife.
He gave the assurance that none of the roads and other projects embarked upon will be abandoned before he finishes his first term.
“We cannot play with the cradle of Yoruba, because it is the origin of all. So all the projects embarked on will surely be completed before the end of my first term by God’s Grace”.
In addition, he appealed to members of the party who were not given any political appointment to be patient with him.
“I want to appeal to you on the sharing of political posts. Let us be patient. It will go round.
“If we are reelected, those that did not get in the first term will surely get in the second term.
“Let us know that we can only demand posts when we are in government,” he said.
