- Kolade declares that she will fight all forms of domestic abuses as governor of the state
- APC deputy chairman, Kemi Olaleye, pleads with women to support her when the election starts
A female medical doctor, Mojisola Kolade, has joined the race to take over from Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state in the forthcoming governorship election as she seeks for a ticket from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Punch reports that while declaring her intention on Thursday, February 15, at the state secretariat of party in Ajilosun, Ado Ekiti, Dr Kolade promised that her government would deal with rap*sts in the society as well as those subjecting minors various types of abuses.
She promised to ensure that no child in the state is made to hawk on the street when he or she should be in school.
“It is no gainsaying the fact that Ekiti are well-educated people, but no industries for them to work and this is sad.
“I will revamp our moribund industries to serve as impetus to our youths to go to schools,” she said.
The APC deputy chairman, Kemi Olaleye, who received her, urged women to support the female contestant during the primary.
“If you check the political history of our dear country, you will see that women like Biodun Olujimi, and Remi Tinubu have done us proud with their contributions on the floor of the Senate, so it is wrong to say women lack the capacity to govern.
