A former media adviser and chief of staff to national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Sunday Dare, has revealed that he may contest the 2019 elections.
Though he didn’t say precisely what position he would contest for, the Ogbomoso-born award-winning journalist, said he is qualified by all standards.
Dare, who is the executive commissioner in charge of stakeholders’ management at the Nigeria Communications Commission, NCC, spoke today in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, at the Ibadan leg of the Daniel Ayoola Dare, DAD, Foundation medical outreach where over 1,000 free eyes test where conducted and free eyes glasses given.
When asked whether he is nursing any political ambition come 2019, he said, “after serving for years as a journalist, and with my experience, I think it is about time I come home. I am using it as a platform to plant myself politically in Oyo State.”
Hinting that no fewer than 1,500 people are to benefit from the foundation’s ongoing medical exercise, he said that participants would be given necessary medications in accordance with the outcome of the results conducted on them.
Dare, who was obviously impressed with the turnout of the people, recalled how, at a similar outreach in his Ogbomoso hometown this year, about 1,000 people benefited from the free eye test and free eye glasses.
He added that the free medical outreach will by August this year be expanded to include free medical screening, providing family support such as distributing food items, free surgery among others.
Speaking on the motive behind the foundation named after his late father, Mr Dare said the Free Medical Outreach was part of his efforts at impacting positively on the life of the people in the society.
He, however, advised those wishing to seek elective offices in the country to first let their people feel their impact in a positive way by contributing to the society before even showing any political ambition.
