…charges students to vote candidates that would secure their future
The gubernatorial candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC), Prince Gboyega Nasir Isiaka has promised to resuscitate the bursary and scholarship board for the State’s tertiary institutions in Ogun state.
The two-time governorship candidate also charged the entire student populace to ensure that they vote for candidates with proven pedigree and character in order to secure their future.
Isiaka, spoke with students of the Ogun State Institute of Technology, Igbesa who came out in their numbers to show support for the governorship hopeful during his campaign tour of Igbesa in Ado/Odo-Ota local government area of the state.
He added that, students can not afford to show political apathy, especially as the stakes are much higher in the 2019 elections.
He urged them to anchor their voting decision on competence, credibility and antecedents of individual candidates rather than be swayed by inducements from “looters under the guise of politicians.”
“What I can say to you, is that I am no stranger to you all. You know me and my records are in the public domain. As Students, you must sit down on your own and make informed assessment of all the candidates and then make your informed decision”.
He stated further, “It should not be a matter of the highest bidder. My message to you is that you should not sit on the fence. You should get involved. Choose wisely and bear in mind that if you choose well, you will be at peace with yourselves and also secure your future though dividends of good governance.”
He added that his administration if elected will promote vocational training and encourage Students to embrace entrepreneurship, noting also that human capital development ranks high on his government’s priorities.
“As governor, I will promote technical and vocational education. These days, it is not necessarily about what you study in school, but more about what you have passion for. Ours is to help you pursue your passion and make a living from it. We must also understand that if we do not invest in human capital development, we are not going anywhere.” he submitted.
