4 He decried the lingering crisis in the nation’s tertiary education, saying funding of the sector should be taken away from the government.
5 According to him, my government, if elected will take funding of tertiary education away from the government and place it under Tertiary Education Fund (Tetfund).
6 “We will expand Tetfund and ensure it is managed by independent trustees who are not partisan politicians,” he said.
7 Adebayo said that the country was currently battling so much challenges ranging from insecurity, economic sabotage, budget mismanagement, disunity, high unemployment and high inflation.

12 The SDP said that the party would ensure united, productive and economically buoyant country, if elected.
13 Adebayo said that the SDP administration would set-up “a proper government that knows how to render services by putting the right peg in the right holes”.
