A House of Representatives aspirant aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Mrs Adesola Ayoola Elegbeji has said that her target is to make the students of her constituency the first top 10 in the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) and General Certificate of Examination (GCE) in the next four years.
The aspirant, an international Information Technology (IT) consultant who is vying for the party’s ticket to represent Remu/Sagamu Federal Constituency noted that it was that zone makes Ogun State the gateway it is, and therefore deserves a better representation.
Speaking to journalists at the APC National Headquarters in Abuja, Elegbeji said that she left her well paid job in UK because her love to develop her people.
According to her, coming from a background of parents who had contributed in community development, she had no any other option than to seek for a better development of her people at the House of Representatives.
“When people ask me why do you want to contest, I tell them something that Ghandi said “life without service is not life worth living.” So, I have been blessed and privileged to have professional experience and I have come to a point where I have to take all of that professional experience to serve my people for the better.
“What I did in the past was to give people further education and skills to get job. So coming back to the present, I looked at Remo Federal Constituency in the last five years, we have been very deficient in benefiting from the dividends of democracy and federal character. First of all, I am always very clear that I am not denigrating anybody. People do what they can but I look at it that they can do better. I have international experience and have worked in many companies and brought a lot of companies to Nigeria.
“So, if am elected to represent my people in the National Assembly, what I will do is to focus on these areas: poverty alleviation, health, education, etc. In education, I can’t build schools, but I can boost the provision on ground which I have already started by procuring GCE/WAEC forms for people, also giving them coaching to augment what they have. Right now we are number 19 in WAEC result on the National map. My target is to move us from 19 in four years to be the top 10 so that students in Remo constituency would be the top 10 in WAEC result.”
