One of the leading contenders for the Ibadan North federal constituency seat in Oyo state, Lanre Sarumi has picked his expression of interest and nomination forms under the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
The aspirant, while picking the forms at the party’s Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, said his campaign and eventual mandate will be hinged on the cardinal areas of development carried out by his leader and Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde.
He said his aspiration is born out of deep responsibility to the people, which is also encouraged by the populist political ideology of Governor Oluwaseyi Makinde.
Sarumi swore to preserve the ideology of the populist government of Makinde, by putting premium on the people’s welfare while he represents the interest of his constituency at the National Assembly.
He thanked the leaders and the entire members of the PDP from Ibadan North Federal Constituency, adding that “this movement has been your drive from day one and it’s success is entirely your own story”.
“Today, as you have encouraged us, I Olanrewaju Olalekan Sarumi have picked up the Interest and Nomination form to represent all of us at the National Assembly”, he said.
He promised to seek for partnership with both foreign and local organisations to commence the reconstruction of some abandoned communities in his constituency.
Sarumi also said as the representative of the people, he will prioritize women empowerment, youth development, strong educational development, good medicare and quality legislation that will strengthen security of lives and properties in Oyo state.
The House of Representatives hopeful who is known for his humane disposition to the less privileged, also promised that his Federal Constituency will become the envy of other constituencies if given the opportunity to represent them at the Green Chambers.
He noted that as a responsible representative, he will always be at the beck and call of his people, adding that he will put an end to the era of constituents not gaining access to their representatives.
