Hon. Owolabi Olatunde Razaq, member representing Share/Oke-Ode Constituency in the Kwara State House of Assembly has said his priority is never second term in office but well-being of his people and the future.
Owolabi said it is God who knows what the future holds for him appealing to his people to support massively, the second term of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, which is the certainty for now.
The lawmaker at Share Ward 3 and 4 meeting held in Babanloma, Ifelodun Local Government on Wednesday, said some people cooked up lies against him to malign his image before he was voted into power, thanking God that he proved rumour mongers wrong when he eventually got to the State House of Assembly.
The Olu-Omo of Oke-Ode who was given a rousing welcome by multitudes into his hometown, described himself as a warrior who fights big battles.
With God by his side, he vowed to always fight big to defend the interests of his constituents and Kwarans and never be involved in any chaotic act.In his word, “God is not only helping me with my achievements, he is the one doing everything for me, I am an apple in God’s hand and whoever fights me fights God”.
Owolabi thereafter, donates cash gift and generator sets to party and communities to power the borehole he has earlier sunk for them, declaring peace in Babanloma, Share Ward 3 and 4, Ifelodun Local Government Area and Kwara State at large.
Overwhelming by Owolabi’s gesture, APC stalwarts, elders and youths of the community could not but declare total support for the second term bid of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, saying, Owolabi has laid good path for them to follow.
Elder Gabriel Aliu, Azeez Ojewale, Alhaji Sulaiman Aweda, Elder Samuel Jimoh among others, in their separate confessions, said since they have been experiencing politics, they have never seen a politician as good and generous as Owolabi.
“He is a rare gem in Kwara politics, he is the people’s choice because God has ordained him from heaven. He has done tremendously well for the Constituency and state, now is the time for the people to reciprocate by going in his direction” they said.
