A prominent politician and former member of the Ondo State House of

Assembly, Prince Ademola Adegoroye has joined the on-going governorship

race in the state on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.

In a statement signed by his Director of Media, Mr Dennis Oluwumi issued

in Akure yesterday, Prince Adegoroye, from the royal family in Akure, who

was elected on the platform of the Democratic Party of Nigeria and later

Alliance for Democracy to the Ondo State House of Assembly precipitates

his desire to restore hope and dignity of the people of Ondo State.

“At this critical stage of the history of our state, we need tested and

trusted hands to man strategic political positions in the state in order

to bring a rebirth and restore the dignity of our people who have been

degraded by poor management of resources,” the respected lawyer who once

practiced at the Wole Olanipekunn Chambers said.
Adegoroye said though the battle for the number one seat in the state

remains a tough one, he said a clear study of the current spate of affairs

especially as it affects the economy, education, health and human capital

development requires great attention.
The former lawmaker who is a member of the State Strategy and Mobilisation

committees
contested the gubernatorial election in 2007 on the platform of the Action

Congress and came third behind Dr. Segun Agagu of the Peoples Democratic

Party and Dr. Olusegun Mimiko on the Labour Party said he would bring his

mastery of governance and grassroots politics to the fore when elected.

“I have what it takes to govern the state and revamp its economy, its

mineral deposits, especially the bitumen in the state and pursue the

state's development in consonance with the provisions contained in APC

manifesto” he said.
While counting on the support of party leaders and members in the state

and throughout the country ahead of the primaries, Prince Adegoroye said

Akure, which produces a huge percentage of votes in the previous elections

should be given the priority to produce a governor of the state this time

round.
