Kwara SDP governorship aspirant canvasses PVC registration

The governorship aspirant of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Kwara state, Engineer Sunday Babalola, has said that votes do count, just as he urged Nigerians to get their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to exercise their franchise.

Speaking in Omu-Aran, Irepodun local government area of the state during his declaration of intention to vie for the governorship ticket in 2023 general election, Engineer Babalola, said “if votes don’t count some bad elements will not be stealing ballot boxes during elections”.

“So, votes really do count. Go and get your PVC. For my immediate supporters, go out there and campaign vigorously for the victory of the Social Democratic Party”, he said.

Engineer Babalola said that he was contesting the governorship seat to make a difference in governance,

He said, “the suffering of the people, poor infrastructure, insecurity in the state, among others are the reasons for declaring interest in 2023 governorship elections.

He said if emerged as the governor of the state he would put in place, “a government of the people by the people and for the people.

“We are going to touch every community, know their needs and prioritize those needs. We are also going to do some revenue drive for us to have enough resources and close all financial leakages. We will also make education sector better.

“We are going to make farming easy for people. We are going to return to mechanized farming. In 2022 we are still farming with hoes and doing things the way they did it in the 19th century.

Also speaking, the SDP Women Leader, Mrs. Olajumoke Oyewole, pledged support of women in the party, urging the governorship aspirant to give women their dues in form of women empowerment.

The youth leader, Mr. James Adeboye, called on the governorship aspirant to carry youth along in his campaign activities in order to record huge success.
