I want my constituents to feel the presence of FG — Akinjide Kazeem Akinola, Accord Reps Candidate, Egbeda/Ona-Ara Federal Constituency

The candidate of Accord Party in Egbeda/Ona-Ara Federal Constituency, Hon. Akinjide Kazeem Akinola has in a Facebook live interview explained the rationale behind his political aspirations.

While feeding questions from the hosts, Akinjide Kazeem have the following extracts from the Facebook Live Interview with Folarin Martins and Abiola Olubadan…

√. Hon Akinjide Kazeem Akinola is a business man, he’s into Oil and Gas, the upstream and downstream sector.

√. Our representatives feel nobody can challenge them in Egbeda Ona-Ara LG, so they began to take our people for granted.

√. This is no longer about me, but the people of my constituency. I can easily go back to my business, but I chose to stay with my people and fight with them against terrible representation in Abuja and oppression in my constituency.

√. For 6 days, we could not conduct the APC primary elections because they refused to do the right thing. They lacked confidence to do an open primary in front of the people they represented for over 3 years.

√. I have always nurtured this ambition before joining the military. I got my inspiration from politicians like Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Late Abiola Ajimobi and Babatunde Fashola. They inspired me to retire voluntarily and pensionable after 16years of service from the military to go into partisan politics.

√. I have engaged in many national assignments for the APC. In fact, I withdrew from being the South West Cordinator for Security Council in the Presidential Campaign Council to fight with my people in the Accord Party against squandering of the constituency resources and poor representation in Abuja by the serving federal representative.

√. Accord is a party with almost Oyo APC members and Accord aborigine.

√. The good people of Egbeda Ona-Ara federal constituency are in the best position to evaluate Akin Alabi’s performance in the Green Chamber.

√. Wanting my people to feel the presence of the FG is key. People need to be enlightened that lobbying is one of the good qualities of a legislator. A responsible lawmaker should be able to lobby for Projects that will have lasting impacts on the good people of Egbeda Ona-Ara federal constituent.

√. For example, there is high population of farmers in my constituency, so we have to plug into the many FG loans for farmers. By using one or two connections and goodwill, we will lobby for transformers through Rural Electrification Agency in Abuja.

√. Most of what our representatives call constituency projects, like renovating 6 blocks of classrooms, is what people do as voluntary philanthropy in their private capacity as we have done countless times – Providing Potable water through boreholes, streetlights, free jamb forms, we even do follow ups by organizing free lecture for students where students scored 310, 291 etc.

√. The new electoral act doesn’t support irregularities except a free and fair election. I did my research before embarking on this Accord project. Our people are yearning for a change in their representation, they clamored for Accord Party to come out and fight for them.

√. I didn’t lose in the primaries as opined by purveyor, I withdrew when they couldn’t conduct any primaries for good 6days.. A real man should know when to retreat and advance.

√. We will make sure we provide many employment opportunities for our people like we have been doing before now with many civil defense employment we have provided. We will also do follow ups on our empowerment schemes so that the people are well equipped mentally and financially to improve in their chosen capacity.
