I will perform distinctively if given opportunity to serve ~ PDP gubernatorial candidate, Professor Kolapo Olusola

The Deputy Governor of Ekiti State and the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Professor Kolapo Olusola Eleka has said he'll perform with distinction, if given the opportunity to serve as the next governor of Ekiti State.

"I have judiciously used the opportunity given me by Ekiti people to serve as deputy governor of Ekiti, I will surely perform distinctively, if given opportunity to serve as Governor.

"I supervised the most delicate and important sector (Education) and success followed. We came first in NECO back to back and we also excelled in WAEC examination, our product scored the highest mark in JAMB, and College of health and Technology aslo came first. If given the opportunity, I will build on the solid foundation already laid by Governor Fayose and Ekiti shall be an envy of other states," Olusola said.

The PDP standard bearer made this known when he visited some schools in Ado-Ekiti, in continuation of his visit to schools to mark his 50th birthday celebration with staff and pupils.

Addressing the teachers and the pupils, Prof Olusola said it was in his habit to celebrate birthdays with the less privileged, but decided to celebrate with children across the state this year, because this year was his last lap as the state's deputy governor and the beginning of his journey as the Governor of Ekiti state.

Admonishing the pupils, Prof. Olusola charged them to be like Samuel, who was Obedient, respectful and submissive to his parent. He charged them to face their studies and be good ambassadors of their homes, schools and their state.

Reechoing the stance of the state government in prioritizing workers' welfare, the deputy governor assured the teachers that, as the nation is witnessing economic improvement, the state will be better for it and backlog of salary arrears will be cleared.

"Some are saying I am going round the schools. Yes, I am going round the schools in Ekiti, because that is the major sector I am supervising. They can say whatever they like. As a teacher, I know the importance and significance of teachers in our society.

"They are using arrears of salary owed to campaign against us, but we are glad, we did not resort to downsizing, sacking or retrenching our workers as they have been doing in states they are governing.

"Some state pay half salaries or proportionately pay their workers. But we are paying you in full and all the arrears shall be cleared.

"My governor has said with faith, he would not leave the state a debtor of salary. I want you also to join your faith with ours and have faith that your salary arrears shall be paid," he said

The joyous teachers who could not hide their joy and satisfaction danced and hailed the PDP governorship candidate for his Omo-luabi attitude.

The teachers and the pupils of the all the schools visited were all blessed with Cash gifts, bags of Rice, exercise books, pen, and other items.
