Alliance for Democracy (AD) Governorship Candidate in Ondo State, Chief Olusola Oke, has attributed the rising crime rates and propensity of youth to violence in the state to the pervasive unemployment.
The AD flagbearer, who spoke at a meeting with party chieftains during his campaign tour to Idanre promised to revive all moribund industries in the state and as well complete the abandoned ones.
Oke said politicians, who deliberately pauperised the people through their anti-people policies, capitalised on the jobless situation, gave money to the youths to perpetrate violence.
He, however, promised to reverse the economic situation by creating the enabling environment which would attract investors to the state and encourage farmers with necessary implements and aids.
In his speech, the Director General of Olusola Oke campaign organisation, Bola Ilori said there is no faction in AD.
