ACCEPTANCE SPEECH BY PADE OKUNOLA ON HIS NOMINATION AS THE GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE OF THE ACCORD PARTY FOR THE 2018 OSUN STATE GOVERNORSHIP ELECTIONS ON SATURDAY JULY, 21, 2018 AT OSOGBO, NIGERIA.
Great members of the Accord Party and Osun people keen on watching democracy at work in our party.
I am extremely honored to be elected the Gubernatorial Candidate and flag bearer for Osun State by the Accord Party and to accept the responsibilities that your trust has placed on me. In addition, I can hardly keep in my impatience to start your campaign of Oneness and Progress to transform Osun State of Nigeria from poverty to the realization of her great potentials.
On behalf of my family, the Pade For Osun Governor Campaign Team, I accept your decision to nominate me as the Accord Party candidate for the Osun State of Nigeria 2018 governorship elections. The thrust of our campaign and eventually the government is to make non-payment of workers’ wages illegal. In other words, we are committed to
Secondly, we are positioned to transforming the fortunes of our young men and women by encouraging investors to partner with us in realizing the wonderful business proposals that we continue to fashion. We must channel the energies of our youth into profitable ventures by legitimizing digital entrepreneurship and engaging them in modern business industries being introduced into Osun State. We will make Internet services available round the clock in Osun State.
We will work with Federal authorities to provide electricity through modern renewable energy sources as the foundation for securing the industrial transformation of Osun State, attracting explosive business growth. The implications for job creation are tremendous and the stimulation of prosperity stupendous, because of the ramifications of the evolutionary technology policy which touches every industry imaginable in the Living Spring State.
We are determined to transform the landscape of Osun State through industrialization and tourism, creating both novel industrial parks, and tourist parks in our well-endowed state. I urge everyone to become familiar with the Seven-point agenda that we have fashioned out as you solicit political support and canvass for votes in your various wards and cities. They will anchor and guide our activities and the PADE principles will govern our behaviors.
I promise to make you proud. However, do not forget. The journey to Government House, Abere has just started. There is work to be done. In fact, a lot of work. Therefore, while we are all grateful to God for making it possible for us to cross this bridge without rancor, we need to pull together more tightly to get the job done and win the election to save Osun people from the bondage of poverty. I am certain that God will lead us to victory.
Once again, on behalf of Folake and I,
Thank you so much for the honor
Up Accord! Oneness and Progress.
Long Live our great party – The Accord Party of Nigeria!
Log Live Osun State!!
Long Live Nigeria!!!
Julius Olapade Okunola
Accord Party Gubernatorial Candidate for Osun State of Nigeria.
