The aspirant called on like-mind politicians in the state to join him.
A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun, Fatai Akinbade, has declared his intention to run for the governorship election in the state on the platform of Labour Party, LP.
Mr. Akinbade, who made the declaration on Thursday in Osogbo, said his aspiration would be guided by the party manifesto on the development of the state.
He listed mechanised farming, industrialisation, restoration of middle class, expansion and development of infrastructure and mining as some of his agenda towards transforming the state.
He said his other programmes include human capital development, tourism development and building an egalitarian society.
“I am resolved to work towards the goal of providing quality leadership that will work tenaciously to bring about the required development and give our people a new lease of life.
“Let us go into a partnership that will positively affect our collective fortunes,” Mr. Akinbade said.
The aspirant called on like-mind politicians in the state to join him on a rescue mission on the platform of LP to bring about a new dawn in the state.
The LP chairman in the state, Timothy Olatunji, called on the people of the state to vote for LP candidate in the August governorship election.
He promised that the party would bring revolutionary changes in Osun, stressing that “it is only LP that can liberate our people”.
