As a young man that is cognizant of the huge investment our party and the generality of lkorodu people have vested on him, I deem it an appropriate time to give back and putting to use the knowlege, talent and experience acquired over the years, at the service of my people.

I am therfore not coming from nowhere but yielding to my better informed instinct and stronger zeal to contribute more to the greatness of my local Government at this very auspicious time demanding revamping.
Ikorodu is so populated now and as such blessed with Internal Generated Revenue Potential that should work in our favour year in year out; Our security architecture needs total overhauling and the multifaceted talents of our highly conscious youths demands urgent engagement for positive re branding of Ikorodu Local Government.
The foregoing are my dream for a greater Ikorodu which I am sure also forms part of your bigger dreams hence the need for collaboration of dreams, for which I am seeking for your approval and support for my aspiration which is not an ambition merely to occupy a polical office but a strong will for selfless service to a people and an indigenous Local Government.

I have no doubt that you will have a positive disposition towards it and encourage me.
