In his bid to contest in the forthcoming State House of Assembly election to represent Oluyole State constituency, the popular on air personality with the Fresh FM radio station, Alhaji Waheed Akintayo (a.k.a. Ilumoka Presenter) has joined other numerous aspirants that have picked the expression of interest and nomination forms ahead of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) primary elections.
Waheed Akintayo picked the forms at the National Secretariat of the party, Abuja today.
Shortly after collecting the forms, Waheed Akintayo visited the party Deputy National Chairman (South) Ambassador Taofeek Arapaja in his Abuja office.
Speaking after obtaining the forms, Waheed Akintayo said the decision to obtain the forms was sequel to his consultations with various stakeholders of the PDP at both state and local government level to intimate them of intention to contest for the State House of Assembly for Oluyole state constituency in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
According to him, “as a true democrat who believes that politics is all about the people and not for personal gains, I want to use my experience as an erudite broadcaster and tourism expert to bring smiles to the faces of the downtrodden in my constituency by sponsoring laws that will centre on the welfare of the people and equally facilitate many developmental projects to the grassroot if elected.
“I believe strongly that my 2023 Legislative Agenda and contributions on the floor of the House of Assembly will lead to improvements in the social welfare policies of the state, improve its security and ultimately contribute to the expansion of its economy that will bring food on the table of the majority of the people.
“I want to say a very big thank you to my people in Oluyole Constituency for their tireless and unflinching support for the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde in the last three years. I promised not disappoint them if giving the opportunity to represent them in 2023 election.”
