Former Super Eagles player, Segun Odegbami has revealed that he intends to run for the governorship position in Ogun state under the Labour party come 2019.
The famous footballer declared his intentions at the party secretariat at Quarry Road in Abeokuta, stating that if he is elected as the governor of Ogun State in 2019, he will pay more attention to education and health. He promised to give the people’s welfare more attention.
He said, “our government, which would be led by the Labour Party, will provide quality education and health care delivery system by building hospitals where necessary. Necessary facilities for proper care, including drugs and personnel, would be provided. I believe that only the people with sound health can work and even enjoy amenities provided by the government.”
He also referred to Nigerian hospitals as mortuary because they lacked the necessary facilities needed to save lives. Odegbami cited the instance of his mother, who he said the medical doctors had written off and he took her abroad for medical attention. She lived for another 11 years before she died.
Speaking on education, he said that his government would provide education that would make graduates employable and also make jobs available for other people.
Chairman of the Labour party in Ogun state, Mr Abayomi Arabambi, welcomed Odegbami and other people supporting the party. He stated that the APC-led government in the state has failed to solve the various challenges facing the people in the state.
