The immediate past Head of Service, Adesoji Eniade has finally declared interest to run for the Oyo governorship race in 2019.
Insideoyo.com had reported how the former Head of Service of Oyo state, joined the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, less than 9 days into retirement.
Eniade in a series of tweets on Sunday afternoon, said his intention is borne out of his dream to move Oyo state up in the ladder of greatness.
“Growing up on the proud and historic streets of Ibadan was fun. And, just like every enterprising little boy back then in E9, Oke Adu in Agodi, I had lofty dreams.
“One of such dreams of mine was to see Oyo state become even greater than it was, and I was determined to contribute my mite and might to make the progress happen.
“This vision largely informed my decision to join the Oyo state Civil Service at the relatively tender age of 23 – to serve.
“Thirty-five (35) meritorious years of service later, I have learnt that this dream of mine, just like the dream of every other well-meaning Oyo state citizen, still hold true.
“I have learnt that an even greater Oyo state will be achieved when pillars like Socioeconomic development, Women and the girl child empowerment, Industrialization and infrastructural development, the Future generation and the Technological and creative industry development are well-nurtured and championed to accelerate the desired economic growth for the benefit of all citizens.
“I have learnt that this dream will also materialize when the Civil Service is further developed and empowered to thrive on efficient service delivery.
“But, most importantly, I have learnt that this dream to see Oyo state move up in the ladder of greatness will be achieved when I also lend my heart and join my experienced hands with fellow, like-minded and well-meaning citizens.”
He said in light of the above, he desired to further serve the state, as the next Governor and Chief Servant.
“In light of the above, I desire to further serve this State of our dreams, OYO (@oyostategovt) as the next Governor and as your Chief Servant,” he concluded.
