Kekemeke, who said that he was better equipped than he was four years ago, said he had a sole aim, to wit: “To make government seeable, touchable and feelable, so much so that the pain of one would be the pain of all”.

He said that the progress of the state could only be realised through perceptive and deliberate efforts of party men, women and citizens who saw beyond the limiting haze of “prebendal politics”. to the noble and elevating Ideals of development politics.

The APC chieftain, therefore, said that his agenda for prosperity and peace would ensure an industrial take-off of Ondo State through prioritised investment in human and natural endowment.

“We offer free and compulsory primary education, free secondary school education, highly subsidised tertiary education, quality health services for all including the establishment of a pharmaceutical company and the “Ibile” hospital.

“Our program includes availability of food and employment opportunities through the civil farmer (agbe olowo osu) and the establishment of small scale agro-allied industries,” he said.
