Peace and Security
To continue to enjoy a serene environment, and better peace and security in our community, I will focus on crime and conflict prevention by working with our traditional rulers and security agents.
Our primary economic activities in Ijebu North are trading, lumbering, farming and hunting. I will support policies that will bring about development and improvement in these economic activities.
Food and Farming
Increasing our agricultural production and development in Ijebu North means a better economy for us as agriculture constitutes a large part of our activities. Inadequate water supply, lack of training.
I will encourage the government to provide schools with learning facilities and materials and provide scholarships and grants for exceptional students, supporting vocational learning.
