Oni, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, said his mission was to rescue the state from its current handlers and secure its future.
“This is largely about deploying the resources of Ekiti State to develop the land and its people. This is not about personal enrichment or personalising governance for a few cronies,” he said in Ado Ekiti.
He named a former member of the House of Representatives, Yemi Arokodare, Director General of his campaign team.
Oni said ahead of the campaign, he was making efforts to unite party members and wiping out divisive tendencies.
He said, “The PDP family is an inclusive political community with a level playing field for all party members; we will leave no one behind because the party is big enough to accommodate diverse interests, groups and everyone.
“This developmental journey is not about us, our friends or associates; it is about the people who have shown tremendous confidence in our ability to turn the state’s fortunes around and guarantee Ekiti a secured future.
“That the people are coming forward, volunteering their cars for the PDP family branding, is a demonstration of pure love, confidence and trust in our commitment to make Ekiti State a better place for all.
“The campaign has not started, but the people are eager to create awareness and assure themselves that there is a viable alternative to the present situation in the state and will never take this for granted.”
