Ogun: Why I want to represent my people again by Olumide Osoba

Honourable Olumide Osoba, son of former governor of Ogun State, Aremo Segun Osoba, has given insight into why he is desirous of representing the people - Abeokuta North/Obafemi Owode/Odeda Federal Constituency,  again at the National Assembly in 2019.

Olumide said he is returning to the Lower Chamber of the National Assembly to rewrite the history of his constituency and put it on the right perspectives for posterity.

The former federal lawmaker who was in the house between 2011 and 2015, lamented that the people of Abeokuta North/Obafemi Owode/Odeda Federal Constituency have not experienced quality representation in the last four years unlike what obtained when he was their representative.

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress(APC) who made this known in a statement, added that he does not want his people to "fall prey to the antics of a misfit" this time, hence the propriety seeking to  return to the Lower house.

Olumide expressed the confidence that the race would be much easier for him to run again because of his past quality representation and landmark achievements while it lasted, recalling that he facilitated over 60 infrastructural projects to his federal constituency.

"It is most unfortunate, shortly after my representation lapsed within that time-frame of four years, no meaningful progress, translating to physical projects, has been facilitated to the Federal Constituency but rather, stomach infrastructure has been the order of the day. 

"I embarked on empowerment programmes, all at the same time building the future of our young constituents by constructing a pair of 3-block of Classrooms in each of the local Governments that make up the Federal Constituency, amongst other meaningful infrastructural projects. 

"And such include five Primary Healthcare Centres and well over half a dozen electrification projects consisting of transformers, poles and power cables. 

"Also, while in the house, I sponsored bills and moved motions but that has not been the case shortly after I vacated the seat and my successor took over. And what do we get in return? 

"Rather, hooliganism becomes the fair share of the representation for my constituents at the Lower Chamber of the National Assembly. 

"As the campaigns commence, a critical appraisal of an individual candidate needs to be done by the very enlightened, exposed and sophisticated electorates of Abeokuta North/Obafemi Owode/Odeda Federal constituency," he stated.
