Progressive political positions of Bola Babarinde 2019

In consideration of our shared hope for a better Oyo State and the strong desire of our people for an internally sustainable state, I therefore join the gubernatorial race in Oyo State. By this medium, I make bold to outline key political stance which are true reflections of my ideological stance. These political positions are expressed in my ongoing engagement with various stakeholders of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Oyo state, and the society at large.

It is evident that the agitations for a more inclusive governance in Oyo State have been neglected for far too long. The wide-spread unimaginable consequences of this ugly situation cannot be left unchallenged. I stand to restore inclusive governance and equitable resource distribution across Oyo State. I have declared to stand in the forefront of an aggressive diversification of our state economy to more productive sectors in order to improve our Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

My coming on board in the gubernatorial race under the platform of APC is premised on taking government back to the majority, the people, who are the much neglected and excluded in the state. The time for a broad-based representative government in Oyo state is none other than now. I pledge to be in the forefront of this long-awaited movement to restore the dignity of Oyo state as a pacesetter, promote faith in the state and loyalty in its over 5.5 million people. The following key issues are cardinal to my gubernatorial aspiration:

Economic issues
Whereas equitable and representative resource allocation has been a thorny issue in the state, my administration will ensure an equitable distribution model for state resources in order to deliver sustainable development to the people of Oyo State irrespective of tribal and religious affiliations.

Basically, our educational system is failing and needs rejuvenation and improvement. State primary and secondary schools are starved of much needed funds and the required infrastructure to position it rightly.

Expanded free quality healthcare system
Compared to other modern states, our public healthcare system is absolutely poor. With substandard infrastructure, brain drain, under-training, basic non-modern facilities and non-existent rural healthcare facilities, we are nowhere near the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) on healthcare.

Employment generation
Irrespective of the series of huge cash allocations from the federal government, the scourge of unemployment among our youths remains a stigma to the present system. We shall restore transparency in public financial management that will guarantee sustainability and job creation for the people of Oyo State.
