The socio-political public/private spheres of Ikorodu Division are awash with visible and hidden intimations of generational leadership gradual failings; facts and realities that bear no esoteric hue and that do not require the understanding and interpretation of experts and professionals of various callings. The failures of our time may translate into the complete failed status of the nation state if we fail to do the needful. 

Coming from the above background, Hon Babawale Bisiriyu Alogba who is an aspirant in the 2023 Lagos State House of Assembly, Ikorodu Constituency 1, has harped on the need for a fresh perspective as the All Progressive Congress (APC) prepares for its primaries. 

Alogba made these remarks during his speech at the consultative meeting held with stakeholders and some delegates of Ikorodu Constituency 1. 

“I am humbled by this rare show of love and genuine support for me. With what I am seeing here today, I can boldly say Ikorodu is, indeed, ready to usher in the change and a fresh perspective that will transform the constituency. This warm welcome means I have been accepted and commissioned to proceed”. 

“With all humility, I want to assure you that I am motivated and ready for the challenges ahead. I want to promise that by God’s grace and with your support, I will provide a fresh platform for effective and responsive legislation. “I am ready to go the extra mile to ensure your rights are protected and by extension, all Lagosian being my larger constituency”

My priority is to be your voice and creating the enabling opportunities and environment for the good people of Ikorodu Constituency to reap the dividends of democracy in Lagos and Nigeria at large.” Alogba promised. 

Hon Babawale also said “Political activities in Nigerian context have been relegated to election periods which unfortunately happens in every 4-year, after expiration of a tenure in a democracy. Imperatively so, for re-assessment of performances Ikorodu Constituency 1 is not an exception and in order to address this melee there is need for fusion of fresh ideas and perspectives to legislative representation in 2023.”  

The banker turned politician said he will establish a nexus between all stakeholders in the community thereby promoting Good Governance and Sustainable National/State Development through motions relevant to current realities. 

“I am here to sensitize us ahead of time, the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Lagos State as a party is built on providing dividends of democracy to the people and Ikorodu Constituency 1 must not be schemed out, Ikorodu needs a representative without any baggage” 
It is sacrosanct to mention or perhaps reiterate the obvious that keeping constant touch with the constituents begot preferential attachment in the sub-consciousness of the people especially when it involves legislative activities that bring succor to hard-times and affecting lives positively” 

Push News 24 International can confirm that Alogba’s fresh perspectives strategy as a legislator is premised on 8 major characteristics. It is participatory, consensus oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective and efficient, equitable and inclusive, and follows the rule of law. The Ikorodu born believes good governance is responsive to the present and future needs of any community, exercises prudence in policy-setting and decision-making, and in the context in which the best interests of all citizens and critical stakeholders are taken into account.
