Sure…early stages, we started to be recognized by our course mates and other students but 1992 during MKO + Babagana Kingibe….I developed full interest….I ve been following Dr Ibrahim Yahaya Oloriegbe when he was a member of House of Assembly in Kwara but I met him one on one in the year 2005 precisely….He is my role model and I love how it plays his politics
What have you done for your community to deserve their vote?
My contributions to my immediate community will speak for me. Although, there is still a lot to bring to the table for my constituency.
How do you plan to involve Your Constituency in the decision making?
The best way to involve in decision making is to enter politics in full of which I have done a wide consultation with my political friends and constituency.

I will represent them fully and ensure all the benefits that belongs to the constituency will be delivered and I will be an honorable member to those that belong to my party and others.
Sir, in your constituency, we heard that water is one of their challenges, how do you intend to end this?
The importance of water in our community can not be overemphasized, we have to give credit to the previous Govt and the present Govt…..but they can still do better….We have mapped out some areas in the constituency in which we need to sink boreholes and we are planning to do our best by spending out of our pocket as well….Trust me,we have concrete plan for this.
