Kwara state indigenes are driven in poverty -- UDP governorship candidate

The governorship candidate for the United Democratic Party, UDP, Mr Adetunji Oyabambi, in Kwara State has said the people of the state were rocking in poverty.

He pledged to fight head-on, the high rate of poverty in the state if elected the state governor.

Oyabambi made the pledge yesterday on his arrival at the Ilorin International Airport to begin political campaign ahead of the 2019 general election.

“A walk through the state capital has shown that people are bedridden with high poverty, hence the need to tackle it because poverty is a state of mind that affected people’s thinking about life.

“Poverty of the mind is the worst. When your mind is not stable, you will be thinking of a lot of things. Like for instance, we walk through the state capital and see poverty everywhere.

“But we will try as much as possible to curb it with the youth. We will try to empower youth, traders and widows to ensure everybody has something doing”, the UDP candidate said.

The governorship candidate lamented the deplorable state of infrastructures in the state, regretting that construction of a diamond underpass at Garin Alimi, started more than two years ago, was yet to be completed.

The UDP candidate promised to bring back the lost glory of Kwara if given the opportunity to govern come 2019.

The governorship hopeful also promised to revamp the economy of the state with the resuscitation of moribund industries.
