” From what we heard, out of the people that are aspiring from the ruling party and some other party, I have contributed more for the development in Yewa/Awori in Ogun West than anyone of them.
” I have been involved in human development, provision of education, provision of scholarships, prison education.
” We practically have our hands in all the local governments in Ogun West. Who has that kind of anticident among them? Is it somebody that is coming from somewhere, who has been somewhere or an individual that has have the privilege of being supported by the majority of the people in Ogun West.

” We have not been having quality representation in Ogun West. If you look at infrastructural development, roads, water, sewage, schools, markets and so on.
” Somebody will come with the excuse that its an Executive responsibility to provide those amenities, but that’s should not be the case.
” Budget is being presented at the National Assembly every year, are they asking questions, what is the need of my people, what is the need of my senatorial district. I want to say that I can conclude that we have not been having it very fair at the Executive level and the legislative level.

” I will use all capacity that I have that I will ensure something is put in the budget for Ogun West Senatorial District.
