An aspirant for the House of Representatives election, Asiwaju Tele Ogunjobi, is to begin consultation with stakeholders and various groups across Ijebu North/Ijebu East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency in furtherance of his ambition.
In a chat with Great Achiever Magazine, Ogunjobi disclosed that the consultation will afford him the opportunity of meeting with key stakeholders, various groups and electorate, where he intends to consolidate on his existing relationship with them and cultivate more support from others.
He said: “What I want to do pending my formal declaration is to consult widely with stakeholders, various groups including artisans, market men and women, youth organisations and others, to enable me get their inputs into my manifesto”.
Ogunjobi, who expressed confidence in winning the House of Representatives election, said he would not deviate from what the people of his Constituency want if given the mandate to represent them, adding that the consultation is a veritable step in signing a social contract with his constituents.
Tele Ogunjobi further revealed that the consultation will not be a one off thing, as he intends to continue holding it regularly even after being elected into office, to collectively assess situation of things in his Constituency.
He assured that he will bring to bear his experience in private and public office to engender quality representation which his constituents will be proud of.
Ogunjobi further said: “What I will do differently if elected is that, I will not assume to know all the problems of my constituents or their wants, rather, I will visit them, identify their problems and request for what they want, which will guide my Constituency projects and sponsorship of bills.
“We should move away from the past whereby a representative will sit in the comfort of his office and begin to assume what his constituents want without asking them, because human wants vary”, Ogunjobi concluded.
While soliciting for the overwhelming support of his Constituency, Tele Ogunjobi urged everyone to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) which will enable them to vote.
