‘my election birthed a people driven governance’ – Olawuyi
The member representing Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Raheem Olawuyi, has posited thaf his election victory heralded a new culture of good governance across the length and breadth of the state.
Mr. Olawuyi made his position in Omu-Aran on Sunday while speaking at the 1st anniversary of the “O to ge” struggle to herald a new direction of a decent society across Kwara state.
The lawmaker dedicated the anniversary celebration to the five members of All Progressive Congress (APC) who lost their lives during the struggle.
The five deceased APC members were Femi Olaoye (Oko Ward), Segun Adewara (Omu-Aran ward), Folake Awolowo (Arandun ward), Adebanjo Adekeye (Ajase ward 2) and Isa Bakare (Odo-Owa ward).
They died in a ghastly motor accident along Omu-Aran-Oke-Onigbin road, a day after the party’s victory in 2018.
According to him, “for decades, Kwarans have yearned for a genuine independent expression of their collective political desire, unhinged by any act of totalitarianism, manipulation and manacling.”
“That day was their first experience of the accomplishment of this desire.”
“The mandate freely and overwhelmingly given to me and our party on November 17, 2018 represented the beginning of a newly birthed Kwara that is people-owned and people-driven.
“No more shall one individual, in the name of a dynastic hegemony, holds the lives and destinies of millions of others to ransom.
He urged party members, leaders and officials to see the victory as a wake-up call to service by promoting a governance culture that will provide decent lives and livelihoods to all categories of the citizenry.
