One of the notable female politicians in Alimosho local government area of Lagos State, Honourable Susan Adebayo, has explained why she is aiming a seat in the Lagos State House of Assembly next year.
The woman, who is very popular in the area, wants to represent the people of Alimosho constituency 1 in the state parliament.
Speaking with journalists recently, Susan said her desire to give better representation at the hollow chamber is one of the main reasons she wants the position.
According to her, another mission is to lay legacy of positive mentorship for the youth of Alimosho constituency 1 and bring succour to the generality of the constituents through good and inclusive governance.
“My people need better representation, their present representative has done his best but it could be done better since the electorates want an alternative devoid of god-fatherism,” she said.
The bold and fearless politician believes Alimosho Constituency 1 can be turned to the envy of all other constituencies in Lagos state.
The philanthropist cum politician revealed that many people consider Alimosho as home to ‘area boys’ which she says is inappropriate.
“I have engaged these people; we have graduate among them and what I discovered was that they are ready to be engaged in legitimate job if given opportunity which I am ready to provide when I get to the House of Assembly as their representative,” Susan said.
The graduate of Political Science from Ambrose Ali University, Edo State, maintained that these boys could be useful to themselves and to the society at large through creation of enabling environment and tap into their potentials.
“I will take them off street and they will be gainfully employed and become envy of others,” she promised.
Susan, who further said empowerment of her people was paramount, promised to make use of her international contacts to change the fortune of her people.
