Akure — Ondo State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate, Chief Olusola Oke, weekend, said that his political campaigns would be issue-based. Speaking with newsmen in Akure, Oke said his campaign would not talk of personalities or individuals.
Oke, the immediate past National Legal Adviser of PDP, said: "Ours is going to be issue-based. We are not going to talk of personalities or individuals.
"We intend to tell the people of this state the enormous opportunities available here and open their eyes to how we intend to use them for their sake."
He said if given the opportunity to serve, he would focus on the development of the state's vast forest and coastal resources to open new frontiers of economic development for the people of the state.
According to him, Ondo State had 80-kilometre shoreline, making it the longest among the country's littoral states and the largest acreage of forest reserves with its abundant ecosystem and varieties of wildlife, some of which are already going extinct in similar vegetation in other parts of the world.
He said: "It is a thing of regrets that we have gold mines in our coastal and forest reserves, yet these areas are wasting away and nobody seems to have taken cognizance of their potentials.
"We have the longest coastline in Ondo State with all its aquatic splendour that can be harnessed to become money-spinners in tourism, while the oil and gas reserves could also be tapped for economic growth."
