Philip Aivoji: PDP’ll turn Lagos to model state

A member of the Board of Trustee (BOT) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Sam Oyovbaire, has described the reasons put forward for defection to All Progressives Congress (APC), by the three (3) PDP governors as baseless, illogical and untenable to the doctrines of democratic principles, norms and values.

A former Commissioner for Commerce, Industry and Tourism in Lagos State and an aspirant in the Lagos PDP chairmanship race, Hon. Philip Olabode Aivoji, has said that if elected the chairman of the Party in the state, he would ensure the party implements people-oriented programmes that would make it a model for other states of the federation.

Honourable Aivoji, who made this remark during a chat with newsmen on Friday, said a lot of researches have been concluded by his team on ways to move the state forward, stressing that with all the nature’s gift in the state, all the PDP government would need on the assumption of office was the proper harnessing of the resources in order to turn them into fortunes.

The chairmanship aspirant noted that with his wealth of experience that cut across both the public and private sectors of the nation’s economy, the attainment of an articulate socio-economic system and optimum use of the human and material resources in building a virile economy in the state were achievable.

He further stressed that with his proven integrity, track record and broad experience, the PDP under him as the State Chairman, was set not only to provide leadership worthy of emulation but equally ensure high morale among the citizenry and bring back the state’s lost glory.

Aivoji, a former Executive Chairman of Badagry Local Government, assured that the PDP Government under him as the State Chairman would focus on entrepreneurship in order to make a larger percentage of the people employers of labour, stressing that the PDP Government in the State would invest heavily in agriculture, which would provide employment opportunities for the state’s teeming young school leavers.

The Politician of high repute and Philanthropist of note said the party’s vision and mission under him as the State Chairman would be to work assiduously to improve the standard of living of the hard-working people of the State of Excellence, as well as bring integrity back into Government by being absolutely transparent.

He assured that the PDP administration in the state would do the state proud by bringing about the much-expected development through the preservation of the environment and in the performance of agriculture, education, improved health services and other social services and amenities.
