Now tell us, why are you running for the House of Representatives?
I am running for the House of Representatives for some reasons. Since the inception of this political dispensation in 1999, I noticed that this federal constituency has not been properly represented. When I go through the bills and motions been read in the House, I discovered that no motion or bill has risen from this constituency. It has been a dormant representation for the people of my constituency.They are not properly represented and I see this as an opportunity for me to go and give them adequate representation.
The former board member of Gateway Tourism Development Corporation said that he would always abide by the wishes of his constituents, promising to always work according to the desires and wishes of the youths.
Otunba Olufemi Sosanya, an active grassroot mobiliser said over the weekend that his constituents have asked him to “move” to the House of Representatives in 2019.
“My people want me to represent them at the House of Representatives in 2019; they want me to contest the Ifako/Ijaiye Federal Constituency seat and I have heeded their call,” he said in Ijaiye Local Government.
Sosanya said that he would always abide by the wishes of his constituents, promising to always work according to the desires and wishes of the youths.
“I am for the youths and will never disappoint them; I will always serve them and listen to them,” he said.
He pledged to shore up the living conditions of his people through quality legislation that could enhance good governance, noting that quality legislation was key to transforming the society.
“Good legislation can enhance the fortunes of the people because quality laws can facilitate projects that will create wealth and employment,” he said.
