The candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) for the Egbeda State Constituency in the March 9 election, Alhaji Wasiu Olawale Sadare, says he remains the best man for the job in view of his “enviable credentials, track record and popularity among the people.”
Speaking with journalists in Ibadan on Wednesday, Sadare, who is the immediate past spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state boasted that none of the candidates of other 27 political parties expected to participate in the next Saturday poll could match up with his experience, competence and passion to serve.
His words: “Without being immodest, I make bold to say that I am the best option available to Egbeda State Constituency this time in view of the fact that our constituents must not continue to suffer marginalization, deprivation and maltreatment in the hand of the executive. Over time, we have had nothing to show for our huge potential as the fifth most populated local government area as well as the fourth largest contributor to the economy of the state.
“The fundamental factor responsible for our plight in Egbeda is the kind of representation we have always had in the State House of Assembly. However, it time our people realized the dire for the right person to be there as their representative and the way to do it is for them to vote for me this Saturday under the platform of the ADP.
“With both University and Polytechnic education, enviable record of public and private sector service, deep knowledge of the constituency as a bonafide indigene and resident, arrays of self-sponsored projects across the constituency and lots more, it is crystal clear that Egbeda Constituency will enjoy the very best with me as their representative.
“In terms of experience, I was at the Senate for more than three years as a Legislative Aide where I witnessed lawmaking business at its peak. I also handled the media and publicity of the ruling party for about four years and record of my sterling performance is undebatable. Additionally, I have proved to be a passionate and responsive person with the provision of social amenities for my people in my private capacity.
“It is on record that I renovated and refurbished a two-block of classrooms in Community High School, Owobaale. I donated two boreholes to Academy-Iwo Road Community while I also facilitated the provision of a 500KVA Transformer to Oki Community via Olodo. Above all, I have always been accessible and one cannot give a correct figure of the number of the needy I have empowered since 2008.”
On the decision of the governorship candidate of his party, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, to step down for another party’s candidate few days to election, Sadare stated that the development would not hinder his chances.
“My people know me very well and I also know them. Most voters in Egbeda State Constituency have found the ideal choice in me and they would do the needful with their votes. By God’s Grace, I will win on Saturday,” he said.
