The party’s gubernatorial candidate, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, assured workers of prompt payment of salaries and pensions.
Adeoti also said the party would review the programmes of the present administration under Governor Rauf Aregbesola if elected as governor.
According to him, policies that would improve the lives of the people would be introduced while those inimical would be scrapped.
