Any politician aspiring to the House of Representatives must be an individual who has been able to build bridges of understanding across the various religious, political and as well live above all forms of sectionalism.
Politics in our Federal Constituency today is becoming more sophisticated, therefore we must not accommodate the kind of political representations that promotes sectionalism.
One man that has lived beyond this is Hon Olumide Ojerinde. Since he became our Federal Lawmaker representing Irepo, Oorelope and Olorunsogo Federal Constituency, he has echoed to the hearings of everyone that he holds the good people of this Federal Constituency nothing but good leadership and good representation.
He has lived to his promises by making sure that people within and outside his party APC benefited from all his programs and projects. In all his numerous programs, items distributed are giving to all irrespective of party lines, division and religious beliefs. Therefore, if there is anyone among the aspirants wishing to contest for House of representative to be wholeheartedly supported in the forth coming primaries. It should be Hon Olumide Ojerinde.
Within 3 years, the narrative of helplessness, buck-passing, division, poverty, insecurity, and hopelessness have changed to turn to a new dawn of confidence in building a one well restructured Federal Constituency.
Hon Olumide have provided a leadership where everybody is free and equal; where everyone in Irepo, Oorelope and Olorunsogo see themselves as Nigerians first and as Igboho, Igbeti, Kisi, Hausa, Fulani, Igede etc second; where we the indigenous people are self-assured and self-assertive; where we are know confident and more conscious; where we want to do what is right no matter whose ox is gored.
Olumide Ojerinde should be supported by all to represent us for second term as he represents and delivers dividends of democracy to the good people of our federal Constituency despite being educated and exposed beyond the confines of our tribes, religion, sectional interest and party affiliations. Olumide Ojerinde has always been for all and will always repeat this good gesture for us all.
