Why did you leave your thriving real estate field for councillor ship mandate
I am still working as an real estate agent , still have my office as am talking to you.
What actually motivated you to join the councillorship race?
All this did not come in a day, l will say that my motive is good governance service to humanity and giving back to the people. mind you this has being in the pipeline in the last 16years. But, I just think l should start from the last tier of government, which is the Councillor lnsha Allah with time we shall be elevated.
You said your aspiration has being in the pipeline for about 16 years . During this period what did you observed that were your community major challenges and if elected as lawmaker what would you do?
Basically the only default in the last regime is accessibility and bringing government to the people at the grassroots level.
Honourable kosi nkankan was the name christened some honourables while in and out of the office were always found of sayings no kobo for anybody. And looking at some of them closely after leaving office one will concludes truly that kosi nkankan. Therefore, Don’t you think some of these former Councillors deserved pension as form of social security ?
Yes, i strongly believe everybody needs pension based on the the knowledge i gathered from my former place of work, an insurance company. There and then, i thought about the need to save for the raining days and how likes of pension were good.
Immediately after leaving office we have seen several former Councillors and supers disposing their takeaway official cars to offset bills. For who would emerge as councilors in July don’t you think they need cash of roughly 4 million to be invested rather than collecting car that exposed them?t
Its a wonderful idea but car is also a necessary tools to make the job easier. For me driving a car wont be bad beacause before now i use to drive a car as a matter of fact it just based on how to manage your people and issues that matters and talking about investment this is a field am good at and as a matter of fact i will carry my other colleagues along.
At your last visitation to Harmony estate cda Ifako ,Kosofe LG meeting when asked what you are going to do for them if elected and you allegedly said after you recovered your money you will come up with programs for them. How true is this allegations?

I have to be factual with you i have being doing wonderfully well in my ward if you are on ground you can ask people on communal development ,economic empowerment and so on. were the things l have imbibed in doing in the last 12yrs with evidence even before i started vying for Councillor.
If elected what would you facilitate to ward C,Ifako-Gbagada?
I will do lots in my power to create a niche by performing more like setting a legacy down for every others coming. I would not want to say more than that.
If elected alongside your other colleagues . Would you ensure as lawmaker that the kosofe LG chairman make the budget open to the cdas,cdc and the general public?
Yes ,that is statutory and This they have being doing before now.
