From Stella Obi, Ibadan
 Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has ordered the immediate release of the land belonging to deaf persons in the state.
This was made known by the Commissioner for Lands , Housing and Survey, Isaac Omodewu, during a forum organised by the Oyo State Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalist in Ibadan.
It would be recalled that members of the Christian Mission for the Deaf in Ibadan protested the alleged illegal acquisition of their land  last month.
He said that the governor also called on the group not to hesitate to inform him whenever they need his assistance in building their proposed University for the Deaf.
Mr Omodewu who is a governorship aspirant in the forth coming 2019 general election under the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), used the opportunity to share his vision for the state if elected into office .
Omodewu noted that if elected as the governor he would improve on the  education, infrastructural ,agricultural and  youth and sports sectors of the state adding that if the education sector of the economy is not sound the state is nowhere.
The commissioner, said if elected into office he would upgrade the Polytechnic Ibadan into a degree awarding institution if elected governor informing that his government will ensure thatthe glory of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Ogbomosho is restored.
Omodewu said he was the best candidate to succeed governor Ajimobi considering his experience and participation in the current administration saying that the present governor has laid a solid foundation for the development of the state.
“Ajimobi has laid the foundation in the state. He needs successors who will build on it.
“In doing this, only an established person is required to succeed him. The established person must be one who knows about the foundation, where it is and where it is going like me. I know of the foundation, where we are today and where we are heading to,” he stated.
Omodewu, an Accountant, said he would woo investors to the state and encourage private partnership so as to avoid overdependence on Federal Government.
The aspirant described himself as a loyal party man and an experienced technocrat, saying these qualities stood him out from other aspirants.
