FREE EDUCATION, HEALTH MY TOP PRIORITIES, SAYS OMO AGEGE
Delta State governorship aspirant, Ovie Omo-Agege yesterday pledged free education at all levels and free healthcare services for all citizens, if elected into office in 2011.
Omo-Agege, who is vying for the governorship ticket on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), spoke to journalists in Lagos. He also described the ongoing reform of electoral process as the antidote necessary to ensure free and fair election.
Speaking on his blueprint for Delta, the aspirant said apart from free education and free healthcare, infrastructural development and security of lives and property, through the introduction of community policing, would be given priority by his government.
He said Delta State, as one of the oil producing states, had the resources to fund free medical services and free education for her citizens. 'Presently, education, including all the infrastructure of learning in educational institutions, is in a deplorable state. Consequently, my government shall revamp the sector and provide free functional education.'
