She said : “The Liberation agenda focuses on improving the welfarism of the people in Akoko Northeast/Northwest Federal Constituency. To achieve this, I would implement a multi-pronged approach.”

Firstly, I would work towards increasing access to quality healthcare by advocating for the construction and equipping of more healthcare facilities in underserved areas. Additionally, I would support initiatives to provide affordable and accessible education, including scholarships and vocational training programs.

Secondly, Economic empowerment through job creation and support for small scale businesses is another key aspect, and I’d promote policies to encourage entrepreneurship. Infrastructure development, particularly road and transportation networks, would be a priority to enhance connectivity and trade within the constituency.

Finally, I would engage in community-driven development projects to address specific local needs.

If voted to represent the constituency at the Green Chamber, what are your plans for women since you’re going to be the only female rep from ondo state?

“As the only female representative from Ondo State, I will do well not to burn the bridges after my emergence. Instead, I will help more women get involved in politics and Leadership roles and not just in the green chamber but across other spheres of government. There will be proper political education schemes to erase the erroneous assumptions of women in politics and the need to be more inclusive.

I would be committed to advancing the rights and opportunities of women. This includes advocating for policies that promote gender equality, such as equal pay, maternity leave, and anti-discrimination measures. I would also support women access to healthcare, education, and economic empowerment programs.

Creating a platform for women voice and concerns would be a priority, and I would work to establish women resource centers and forums for open dialogue.

Ultimately, my goal would be to empower women to actively participate in politics and leadership roles within the constituency.”

The youths and students occupy a larger part of the constituency population, what are your plans for them? And lastly, being a Senior Lecturer (A Scholar), how do you intend to improve education in the Constituency ?

“Recognizing the significance of youth and students in the constituency, As the saying goes “the youth are the hope of the future“ so the youth and students are of great importance to the progress of any society. I would prioritize their needs and aspirations. I would work to create opportunities for skill development and job creation, encouraging entrepreneurship and supporting startups.

Initiatives for affordable and quality education, including scholarships and improved educational infrastructure, would be a focal point. Engaging with youth through town hall meetings and youth councils by providing a means for their voice and concerns. Encouraging youth participation in decision-making and governance processes is crucial for the constituency’s development.

Drawing from my experience as a Senior Lecturer, I would aim to enhance education in the constituency by promoting policies that prioritize educational infrastructure, teacher training, and curriculum development.
I would work towards securing resources for schools, ensuring that they have modern facilities, textbooks, and technology.

Additionally, I’ll advocate for programs that promote academic excellence, creativity and innovation. Collaboration with educational institutions, local governments, and stakeholders would be key to address the specific needs of the constituency.

Encouraging research and development activities within the constituency and facilitating partnerships with universities and research institutions would further contribute to educational advancement.

These strategies collectively reflect my commitment to improving the overall welfare, representation, and development of Akoko Northeast/Northwest Federal Constituency.” She concluded.
