“I believe I will win next election because my people cannot afford to be derailed one more time, my electoral misfortune actually slow down the dividend of democracy in my Constituency, they certainly know what they were benefiting from us as a progressive since we’ve being representing them. It’s very obvious for people to see and a good analytical mind can easily compare my tenure with the present Papa.”

“While in the House, I did made some promises to party, people and few covenants to do some certain things for my people and to instill my name in their memory for life just like Late Papa Obafemi Awolowo which I have not been able to do maximally, Not in the area of material things but my responsibilities to the people of my constituency.”
“I’ve submitted myself as an instrument of change. I am the chief servant and I feel I was born because of them. For being a product of Rauf Aregbesola’s political school has really prepared me well for the task ahead.”
“The truth also is that Ife desire a ranking person to be able to enjoy real dividend of democracy, you can imagine what the people of Osogbo, Orolu Federal Constituency are enjoying today.”
