A candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) for the House of Representatives from Ibadan North Local Government Area of Oyo State, Prince Olaide Musiliu Akinremi, has promised effective representation, if elected to the National Legislator.
Mr. Akinremi, while on visit of the wards, said he would pursue his primary functions of law making with energy and sponsor of bills and motions that will have positive impact on the people.
The candidate said: “Since 1999, we have all witnessed what all the past lawmakers from the constituency had been able to do for our people and there are still very many greater things to achieve to meet up with the growing rate and expansion taking place in Ibadan North.
“Ibadan North being the biggest local government in Oyo State in population is in need of a selfless, committed and spirited individual who has excelled in private life and ready to bring his local and international experience to bear in turning things around for the better.
“I, will not only facilitate Federal Government projects to grow our people and make their life better, I will use my personal emoluments to make our people smile and proud once again.
“For sometimes, I have set up vocational centres in Yemetu, Ibadan North Local Government Area where our youths and women are being trained computing, tailoring, hairdressing, barbing, modern cooking of foreign and local dishes, make-up, among others. On graduation, we provide them with incentives to be self-reliant. Scores of other indigent students scattered all over Ibadan land are being sponsored in higher institutions for them to excel and be the best they can in future.”
Mr. Prince Akinremi said aside projects in the area of school construction, potable water, solar energy and distribution of transformers for regular power supply, he will institute quarterly town hall meetings and interface with the people.
Mr. Akinremi charged the people not to vote for those who had been deceiving them over the years. He urged them to scrutinise programmes and sincerity of those asking for their votes because ‘once beaten is twice shy.’
The APC Candidate advised them to also cast their votes for President Muhammadu Buhari, Senator Abiola Ajimobi as Oyo South senator, Chief Bayo Adelabu as the governor and other House of Assembly candidates of the APC in Ibadan North Constituencies 1 and 2 and House of Assembly candidates.
