Astute businessman Jimoh Ibrahim has joined the race to become the next governor of Ondo after picking up a gubernatorial form of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday.
Mr. Jimoh says he is going to pay all unpaid salaries of the state within his first 100 days, if he is voted as governor.
“I will restructure the state in the area of capacity building, good innovation and by putting the right thing in the right place at the right time. I will pay the workers within the first day of my 100 days in office. Non-payment of salaries by state government is the failure of innovation of states by governors. It is when you are innovative that you will be able to pay salaries. Those (governors) who are owing are not efficient. I’m not owing any of my workers” he said.
