Ekiti 2022: My ambition not for self-enrichment, says Oni

Segun Oni

Former Ekiti State Governor, Chief Segun Oni, has said his ambition for the 2022 governorship poll in the state was to rescue it from total collapse and expand its frontiers of development for the benefit of the masses.

Oni, who led Ekiti between May 29, 2007 and October 15, 2010, said his intention to contest for the coveted seat was not targeted at corrupt enrichment of himself, family and political associates.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain spoke in Ado Ekiti, yesterday, while unveiling members of his campaign team that would power his governorship ambition in 2022.

A former member of the House of Representatives, representing Efon/Ijero/Ekiti West, Hon Yemi Arokodare, was appointed as the Director General of the campaign team.

Oni, while addressing his supporters at his campaign office in Adebayo area of Ado Ekiti metropolis, where the event was held, assured that his mission is to unite the party and wipe out divisive tendencies among contending forces for PDP to emerge victorious in the poll.

He said: “The PDP family is an inclusive political community and we will leave no one behind, because it is big enough to accommodate diverse interests, groups and everyone.

“This developmental journey is not about us, our friends or associates. It is about the people who have shown tremendous confidence in our ability to turn the state’s fortunes around and guarantee Ekiti a secured future.

“It is largely about deploying Ekiti resources to develop its people. This is not about personal enrichment or personalising governance for a few cronies…”
