The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, has been speaking on his vision for a new Ondo economy.
According to him, “I also believe that we can build the economy of this state and when it gets to that level, I am anxious to have people take possession of the government and I am also anxious that we involve our youths in governance and the business of the economy in Ondo State. We have special plans for farmers. I will be a happy man, two years down the line if Ondo State attains some level of sufficiency in food. Some of us would like to see a corn factory and yam flakes. Some of us would like to see plantain chips in a decent environment to ensure food security. Some of us will be happy if these products are translated into providing jobs for our youths. I think this is what we are talking about”.
“ We want to take a shot at establishing a glass industry; take a shot at establishing an industrial base for our marbles in Supare Akoko and other places. We will be pleased to sustain some of the old industries that can be resuscitated. For those that cannot be resuscitated for some reasons, we will bring investors to offer us some replacement in an environment that is conducive for investment . We are going to concentrate on growing the economy and using private investors so that we can have industries “.
