The governorship candidate of the National Interest Party (NIP), Omobolanle Sarumi-Aliyu has promised that her one-year salary will be devoted to humanity if elected the governor of Oyo state in 2019.
Sarumi said this on Tuesday while featuring on Oyo State NAWOJ platform for women governorship candidates at the NUJ premises.
“I will not take salary if elected as governor of Oyo state. In fact, my one year salary will be devoted to humanity. It is time for women to come out and join in this struggle. We must fight this battle together”, she said.
The Ibadan-born female candidate pointed out that the time had come for Nigerians to entrust women with much power for the country to witness the needed development.
According to her, Nigeria men are yet to get it right in terms of governance because they are not treating the underlining factors but only concentrating on building roads.
Commenting on the controversy over local government autonomy in the country, she said if elected, she will restore local government autonomy.
She said, “It is very wrong, I will monitor, I will tell them. if you mess up, I will get you out” but her opponents will ask how she intends to boot out administrators duly elected into office by their own people.
