The Goodluck/Sambo Campaign Organisation in Ondo State weekend gave an assurance that President Goodluck Jonathan would win the South West states during the April general election.
This, according to the state coordinator of the organisation, Prof. Olusegun Adegbulugbe, is in spite of the loss of some of the states in the region to the opposition parties of recent.
Adegbulugbe said the president would particularly win in Ondo State as the people of the state wanted him to complete the developmental projects put in place by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led administration in the country. He pointed out that the state had no problem in its ability to deliver the state for the president. According to him“The president will win overwhelmingly in the election and Ondo State in particular and the southwest in general will be part of the victory of Mr. President”.
The campaign coordinator said the people of the state had requested the president to complete the federally initiated programmes and projects in the state.
The projects, according to him include the $25bn Olokola Free Trade Zone, which is a Public-Private-Partnership project involving the Federal Government, Ondo and Ogun states, and a consortium of foreign and local investors.
Adegbulugbe noted that the people of Ondo South Senatorial district told his team during one of their visits to the area that the early completion of the project, which was conceptualised by the former President Olusegun Obasanjo administration, would boost social and economic activities in the area.
