Oluwapelumi Basehitz have decided to run for State Assembly under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State.
Speaking with Journalists over the weekend at his residence, Oluwapelumi said that his desire to contribute his quota to the development of his constituency and uplift the standard of living of the people inspired his decision.
He assured his constituency of purposeful representation, stressing that if he was elected he would seek solutions to the myriad of challenges facing his constituency.
Oluwapelumi, who is a candidate for the Ondo House of Assembly in the general elections, lamented that successive leaders had failed his constituency in the last two decades, promising to continue with his empowerment programs in his constituency aimed at tackling poverty and unemployment if elected.
The aspirant further called for support among the electorates and the people of Akungba towards making his ambition a reality.
According to him, “I keep telling people that when their representatives make false promises you condemn them; but what are you doing to make sure that the activities of these people are put to end.
“I believe I have a stake in this community and the nation, i am an advocate of community and national development, and the best way to do that is to come out and test your popularity and contribute your quarter to uplifting the standard of living of the people.
“So, I believe I can do it, and make the needed positive change among my people. I have to get into the system. I urge support among the people of Alimosho as we go to the primary”.
