Damisi Ojo, Akure


AS October 10, 2020 gubernatorial election draws near in Ondo state, the National President of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Prof. Adedayo Faduyile, has formally joined the governorship race. Faduyile is contesting against the Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

At an interactive section with journalists in Akure, the state capital at the weekend, Faduyile who is from Ikale in Okitipupa local government area of the state, said the state needed a well-equipped aspirant like him to rescue the state from alleged maladministration.

He will be battling for APC ticket with the likes of Ife Oyedele, Isaacs Kekemeke, Bukola Adetula, Chief Olusola Oke (SAN), Olusegun Abraham and the incumbent Governor, Akeredolu during the primary election that will hold in July this year.

The NMA President who christened his campaign team “Prof Dayo Faduyile- ” PDF 2020″, expressed concern over worrisome state of education and health sectors in Ondo state.

He also said the N5billion Ore flyover constructed by Akeredolu’s administration was a mere waste of public fund, stressing that the project is just a single lane instead of double lane.

The governorship aspirant added that Ore community needed a dual carriage flyover since industries were springing up in the area.

Faduyile said the party would soon overcome its internal wrangling, noting that he had assisted the less privileged in the education, healthcare and sports sectors.
