I'm Running For Senate To Give Ogun East Better Deals, Not To Fight Executive - Armstrong



The Senatorial candidate of the Green Party of Nigeria (GPN) for the Ogun East Senatorial Seat,  Armstrong Akintunde, has said he is running for the Senate seat to give his people quality representation at the National Assembly.

Akintunde alleged that Ogun East Senatorial district - comprising nine Local Governments, have not witnessed better representation since the return of democracy in 1999, pledging to change the narratives if elected on February 16.

The young politician who spoke at town hall meetings in Ijebu North-East, Ijebu-Ode and Ikenne Local Government respectively, said with the political momentum shifting to the youth, it is time he joined the contest, to offer his constituents better deals if elected.

The Senatorial hopeful recalled that he also has been of immense support to many politicians including governors, senators, members of the House of Representatives and those of the state House of Assembly to actualise their political ambitions since 1999 and expressed the confidence that the time has come for him to reap the electoral goodwill from help rendered to others.

The GPN candidate urges the people to stop selling their votes and conscience, because the time to rescue them is now. 

“My people, you told me to come out and I have complied with your wishes. If voted into power, I would work with any president without antagonizing him. After my tenure, no person would have the courage to come out to contest again, because of the record I would set at the Senate.

“Fear not, I have the resources for this election. I have the brain; I have the connection and I have the capacity to become your senator.

“I’m ready for this fight and ready to give my constituents what they had lacked in many years and I’m ready to sign an agreement with all the nine Local Government areas to show my seriousness in this election,” Armstrong said.

At Ikenne, the GPN candidate said he isn't going to the Senate to amass wealth, but to help the widows, the needy and the less privileged members of the society.

He assured the indigenes of Ikenne;  the home town of the first Premier of Old Western region and pantheon of Yoruba politics, late Chief Obafemi Awolowo, that they would get the  dividends of quality representation at the Senate with him as their representative.
