Alhaji Fatai Akinbade, the Labour Party candidate has promised to use agriculture as the springboard for the development of rural areas in the state.
Akinbade said an LP administration in the state would embark on massive mechanised farming, which would leave it with no option than to open up the rural areas where this farming would be carried out.
In a statement by his Director of Media, Mr Kayode Oladeji, the LP candidate who spoke at separate rallies in different towns and villages in Iwo, Ola-Oluwa and Ayedire Local Government areas of the state on Wednesday, said his administration would leave no stone unturned towards achieving this.
His words: “Farming is not done in the city. So with this, all social amenities like roads, electricity, including health facilities among others, will be extended to all rural communities.”
