The former governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, has canvassed the takeover and conversion of the Government Technical College located in Ilara-Remo, Remo North Local Government Area of the state, to a school of aviation by the Federal Government.
Daniel, who is the All Progressives Congress senatorial candidate for Ogun East, explained that he canvassed the conversion of technical college to an aviation school because of its proximity to the new Agro-Cargo Airport in the state.
He made the call on Thursday at an empowerment programme held as part of activities of his ward-to-ward tour of Remo North Local Government Area of the state.
Daniel said the technical college in Ilara-Remo would be the most appropriate to pioneer the establishment of an aviation school.
Daniel stated that he was contesting for a National Assembly seat to make indelible impact and enhance the socio-economic development of Ogun East Senatorial District.
He said, “As we enter another phase, I want to plead that you all support our aspiration. You have seen that my politics is about empowerment; empowering our people to be the best they could be.
“That’s what politics should be about. Anyone blessed by God should give back to the less privileged in the society and this is what I have been doing over 20 years ago.
The agro-cargo airport in the state is not far from here. It is already nearing completion. This local government must take advantage of the airport project.
“There is a technical college here, it will not be out of place if the Federal Government takes it over and convert it to a college or school of aviation. We shall work to actualise this so that our people can reap bountifully from it.”
He promised to work with the Federal Government to take interest in the local government.
Meanwhile, the Odemo of Ishara-Remo, Oba Albert Mayungbe, has expressed confidence that Daniel would win the 2023 senatorial election as a result of his performance antecedents and track records.
