The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Senator Teslim Folarin, yesterday, said that the presidential candidate of the ruling party, Bola Tinubu, would conveniently defeat other candidates in the presidential polls.
He also boasted that he would defeat the incumbent governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, at the March 11, 2023 gubernatorial poll.
Folarin, who gave the assurance while addressing party stalwarts, said that the APC would also win majority seats both at the federal and states in the coming National and States Assembly elections and especially in Oyo State.
According to him, the presidential election is more or less a walkover for the Tinubu-Shettima presidential project.
The senator, representing Oyo Central Senatorial District, also lauded President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that though most of the laudable achievements of the incumbent President might not be that visible yet to Nigerians, the fact is that the President had laid a good template for whoever would succeed him to accelerate the progress and development of the country in the areas of infrastructure.
The senator also said that the South-West zone is a sure win for Tinubu, saying that the infighting in PDP would make the major opposition vulnerable to the well-oiled and politically-organised APC.
He added that the people of Oyo should discountenance the propaganda that Oyo APC is divided, saying: “Contrary to insinuations, we are more united, working as a family and putting our heads together to rescue the state from the maladministration of PDP in the last four years.”
Folarin said his government, when elected, would place maximum priority on education and especially teachers’ welfare.
Folarin added that his government would improve massively on the agricultural sector by ensuring that Oyo becomes the food basket of the country.
The senator, who stated that security in Oyo would be taken seriously such that 24 hours movement and massive investors would be guaranteed, dismissed fears or insinuations that the next general elections may be marred by violence or insecurity.
