The Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate for the November 26 gubernatorial election in Ondo State, Dr. Olu Agunloye, has said that his party was a better alternative to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

The former Minister of State for Defence made the declaration in Akure in his speech after he was unanimously elected as the SDP standard-bearer for the election.

According to him, the APC that is ruling at the centre and the PDP at the state had not changed the lives of the people for better.

This is as the PDP holds its primary this Monday.

Agunloye said that the SDP was ready to find solutions to the problems of Ondo State if voted to power in the November governorship election.

He said the current economic crisis facing the people of the state was as a result of the maladministration and ineffective leadership on the part of the party in power in the state.

“We are here today to signal a completely new path, new ways and new mindset. What you may call a shift from the unrealizable transformation programme of the PDP and unreliable ‘Change Agenda’ of the APC to a systems approach to citizens’ empowerment and food security .

“Our party seeks new way and better alternative entrenched in integrity of managing people, infrastructure and economy for people’s empowerment and emancipation “, he said.
