Abejide stated this on Friday at Idah during a courtesy call on the Attah Igala, HRM Matthew Alaji.
According to the governorship candidate, the seeming rudderness introduced into the traditional system by the outgoing government in the state has lower the image of the traditional institution in the eyes of the public.
“Our administration wILL grant autonomy to the third tier of government, thus giving fresh breath of air to the people at the rural communities particularly, at the grassroots, which will deliver the traditional institution from its present boundage.
Abejide further assured that his commitment to alleviating the suffering of the people of the state has been rekindled by the endorsement of his aspiration from across all the sections in the state.
“Our people in the state deserve a better living standard, giving our status as an oil producing state in the country.
“We can not be counted as oil producing states, and our infrastructures are in terrible condition, just as our people are left in abject poverty.
“My ambition to vie for the governorship in the state was predicated on meeting the needs of the people, especially the rural communities who have been subjected to all manner of challenges that are self-inflicted.”
Elder Leke Abejide stated further that his party ADC has social schemes that will break the jinx of poverty index in the state and turn around the misfortunes that has become the biggest challenge facing the people of the state.
