The Ogun Central Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in the coming 2023 National Assembly election, Alhaji Shuaib Salisu, says he is in the contest with the sole purpose of using quality legislation, effective representation and oversight function to provide a better future for the people of Ogun Central Senatorial district.

Salisu who recalls that he had sunk many boreholes and wells in parts of Ogun Central to enhance his people's access to regular clean water as well as replacement of faulty transformer, said when elected as a Senator in 2023, the downtrodden and the poorest of the poor masses would feel the impact of his representation and that of the government.

The former chief of staff to Governor Dapo Abiodun gave the pledge on Saturday at the Inauguration ceremony of Opeji Area Community Development Council (CDC)

He seeks to occupy the Ogun Central seat in the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly next year. Former governor Ibikunle Amosun is the current occupant.

Since the return of democracy in 1999,  Senators Femi Okunrounmu (Alliance for Democracy), Iyabo Obasanjo - Bello(People's Democratic Party, PDP) and ex - governor Ibikunle Amosun (first as PDP and now APC Senator) have represented the district at different legislative dispensations.

Salisu who addressed over 55 Community Development Areas (CDAs) members, Opeji Area Development council in Opeji said governance should be about the people and solving citizens' problems.

The APC candidate, however, reminded the different groups that the event was not a campaign but an avenue for him to meet, greet and dine with his people as he has always done.

"We have not started campaign. No, this event is not a campaign set up, it’s just for us to see ourselves, greet ourselves and to encourage ourselves. I am encouraged  and impressed with what I have seen here today. And I want to tell you that this is my home and my root , I am proud of my root" Salisu said.  

Making reference to the development plans he intends to execute if elected by the good people of Ogun Central Senatorial district, the Senate hopeful said the downtrodden in the society and the poorest of the poor masses will feel the impact of government when he gets to power, stating that those are the groups at the centre of his development agenda.

"I have sunk many boreholes and wells across the city to ensure our people have access to clean water. Also I have fulfilled my promise to replace the faulty transformer"

Earlier in his welcome address, the chairman of Opeji Area CDC, Commander Kolawole Alatise who happens to be Alhaji Salisu's school mate told the members about numerous development that Alhaji Salisu has brought to Opeji Area and Odeda local government, adding that the Ogun Central Senatorial candidate will expand the scope of development to every members.

According to Alatise, Salisu is a candidate to beat in the forthcoming election.
