PEOPLE–CENTERED REPRESENTATION

I shall continue with my already established tradition of vibrant contributions on the floor of the house, interaction with colleagues and constant liaison with Ministries, Departments and Agencies to promote the right policies and ensure the implementation of same. The main thrust of my representation will continue to be the protection of the vulnerable and disadvantaged, while ensuring that the interests of our constituency are secured in line with my philosophy of putting the people of Eti Osa Constituency first, at all times.

  1. LEGISLATION
    I will continue to use the instrument of legislation to protect the disadvantaged. Just as I successfully sponsored the private member bill to promote non-smokers from the hazardous effects of smoking in public places, which has now been passed into law as well as the Rape Victim Shield and Civil Liability Bill, which I proposed to protect victims of rape, encourage more effective prosecution of the crime and secure compensation for the victims in civil suits. I will continue to work hard to ensure we use the instrument of legislation to engender a better society. I look forward to the support of my colleagues to ensure the passage of the Lagos Patient Bill of Rights into law in the next legislative house, with your kind mandate. In addition, I will endeavour to introduce more bills and motions in the house to enhance the quality of life of the people in different areas, with the emphasis continuing to be on the welfare of the majority of the people.
  2. OPEN-DOOR POLICY AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
    Apart from our regular Town Hall meetings, which serves as a platform for engagement and empowerment, we shall strengthen Community Engagement, in line with our open-door policy, to include more frequent engagement of  Profession Associations, Community Development Associations, Youths Associations, Religious Bodies and  Associations, Resident Associations other interest groups within the constituency to enhance feedback and ensure that everyone is carried along, and duly represented in the positions we canvass on behalf of the constituency.
  3. PROVISION OF AMENITIES
    Our intervention schemes in the different communities which have seen us provide transformers, boreholes to communities in need and renovation of public utilities will continue in a greater dimension. We shall continue to engage with the communities to identify their needs and channel our limited resources, as enabled, to assisting in this regard.
    As we have done with the Obalende transformation project, numerous roads and drains within the constituency, we will also continue to influence the budgeting process in favour of our constituency, while vigorously monitoring  relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies to deliver on projects and plans for communities within Eti-Osa Constituency 02.
  4. Toll-Free Constituency Call lines
    To ensure that all interests are protected and needs properly articulated, our doors will remain open with the constituency office and all our communication platforms made accessible to every constituent desirous of engaging with us. We shall increase our Constituency Call lines to 5 and ensure to make them toll-free in order to remove the Burden of cost from constituents who wish to reach us through such channel, apart from our Whatsapp line that many presently utilize.
