The governorship candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Engineer, Joshua Olukayode Popoola says the NNPP government would focus on the industrialization of the state if elected.

Engineer Popoola also hinted that all the previous papers and researches on industrialization for Oyo state would be dusted, looked into and be made government documents for implementation, so that whenever new government comes, there would be continuity in most of some strategic and enforcement formulated laws.

Engineer Popoola, disclosed this at an interactive session alongside other governorship candidates, organized by the Ibadan Chambers of Commerce and Industry, with other members of the organized Private sector in Oyo State.

” As one of our priorities, we will facilitate the rebuilding of major manufacturing companies in the State. An industrial hub will be created where public-private e-partnerships can provide the necessary restructuring. Access to finance and markets are areas of SME development that will be given significant attention.” Engineer Popoola said.

The NNPP governorship candidate, further told the gathering that the pride of the State, would be reinvigorated, if elected and he would work towards accelerating growth in trading and commercial activities.

He said, his government would support business initiatives including the regeneration of “our markets. Key to this drive will be the involvement of all parts of the state. Major markets across the state will be upgraded, with modern structures and improved access roads”

The Oyo state NNPP Guber Candidate said that he would embark on a great transformation of Oyo State, which would make it less dependent on oil revenue, by diversifying heavily in Agriculture, as one of the major sources of the State’s internally generated revenue.

He said, that his administration would engage in wealth creation through agribusiness, which would develop small and medium-scale enterprises, across the agricultural “values chains providing linkages between the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of agriculture”

Farmers he said, would be supported through organized cooperative agricultural extension services and partnerships with agricultural agencies and development finance institutions, while, funds would be procured that would be targeted at agricultural areas, which would as well encourage large farming.

The agriculture derive from the state under his government, he said, would be targeted towards exportation to take advantage of global markets.

Engineer Popoola said, that the NNPP government in Oyo State, would resuscitate the farm settlements and agriculture research centers, while the local governments and the LCDAs would be encouraged to invest in agriculture, with disablement from the State government, to enhance food production and food security, to boost employment creation.

He also said that to facilitate the efforts of government in this direction, the local government would be made to open up villages through the construction of road networks, to ease the transportation of farm produce, from the villages to market centers, just as genuine farmers, would be encouraged with finance and technical support, as bureaucracy would not be allowed to be a hindrance.

He said, “We also intend to subsidize agrochemical products and other imputes, that will be made available to farmers at the identified selling centers, proximal to the farmers”

According to Engineer Popoola, all these would be done with the autonomy of the local government.
