Mr Banji Okunomo, a governorship aspirant under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo state, says four-year single term is enough for governors and other political office holders to perform.
Okunomo stated this on Friday while addressing newsmen on his ambition to contest the forthcoming governorship election in Ondo state.
According to him, the idea of second term gives room for corruption and non-performance, calling for review of the nation’s constitution to accommodate single term for governors and other elected positions.
He said that single term for the governors and others would fast rack democratic development and bring desired results, thereby making the populace to enjoy dividends of democracy.
The governorship aspirant said that the constitution should not give non-performing governors the latitude of second term.
“I’m saying it that we should be very careful with the issue of second term in the affairs of governance,’’ he said.
Okunomo implored the electorate to take their destiny in their hands by ensuring that they elected credible individuals who would provide good governance rather than those who would not care for their welfare.
On his political ambition, he said that the welfare and economic development of the state would be his priority, if he emerged as the PDP candidate and eventually won the governorship election.
He said that the resources of the state would be channeled towards improving the living standard of people of the state.
According to him, Ondo state is blessed with bitumen and other resources, adding that they would be tapped to industrialise the state, thereby generating employment opportunities for youths and other unemployed indigenes of the state.
The aspirant expressed optimism that he would emerge as the PDP standard bearer during the party’s primaries that would come up in May, claiming that he had the support of majority of party members. (NAN)
