Businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim yesterday picked a nomination form for the November governorship election in Ondo state from Senator Sheriff led Peoples Democratic Party with a promise to liquidate all debts owed by the state government within his first 100 days in office.
Mr IBRAHIM who was accompanied by some stalwarts of the party from Ondo state pledged his support to Senator Sheriff saying that the Chairman of the party’s National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi lacks locus in law to parade himself as the leader of the party.
“I will restructure the state in the area of capacity building, good innovation and by putting the right thing in the right place at the right time. I will pay the workers within the first day of my 100 days in office. Non-payment of salaries by state government is the failure of innovation of states by governors. It is when you are innovative that you will be able to pay salaries. Those (governors) who are owing are not efficient. I’m not owing any of my workers” he said.
He further revealed that he will bring his entrepreneurial spirit into governance, adding that Ondo State has over 10 solid minerals which he would take advantage of to develop the state.
In his reaction, Sheriff said he had known the aspirant long ago and assured him of his support, saying that Jimoh Ibrahim was a capable leader that would revolutionalise leadership in the state.
