Ede Federal Constituency deserves good representation – Prince Eniola Oyeyode





Prince Eniola Oyeyode has asserted that Ede Federal Constituency of Osun State deserves good representation.

He stated this in a press release made available to our correspondent wherein he made it known that a vast majority of the individuals who have represented the Federal constituency in the past failed to deliver quality representation that can attract dividends of democracy to the area.

According to him, “Whereas the different towns and villages making up the Federal Constituency are wallowing in serious underdevelopment, persons who have represented the area in the past had dissipated their energies on developing select individuals through empowerment programmes that end up not having any direct impact on the development of the entirety of the people of the area.” Prince Oyeyode further stated that a prestigious federal constituency such as Ede Federal Constituency should not have its major towns being in pitiable states of development if the representatives had truly discharged their responsibilities to the best of their capacities.

In the release, the Ejigbo Prince emphasized that development of basic infrastructure should naturally have been the major focus of all the representatives that the area had sent to the National Assembly in the past. “Look at Oke-Gada to Country Home junction in Ede which is the major road running through the town; if our past representatives had exerted pressure in the right quarters, the story will probably not be the same today. Look at Ejigbo as well; all access roads leading into Ejigbo are in sorry state (from Ogbomoso, from Osogbo, from Ede, from Iwo, from Oguro, etc). The story is not different for Egbedore Local Government and the towns in the LG.

Why should we have it so bad here when we have representatives who can make valid cases for those roads and attract government attention to them?”
On the kind of representative that Ede Federal Constituency needs at the moment, he said: “The zone needs a young person who is in tune with happenings in today’s world and can tailor his programmes towards helping the society adapt to those new realities. Ede Federal Constituency also needs a tenacious personality who can keep up pressure on the relevant authorities to draw attention to the challenges facing his/her people. We also need a representative that prioritizes development of the society above cheap political gains and will strive to develop the society instead of enriching a few pockets.”

He concluded that “in 2019 we will have the chance to elect another representative for Ede Federal Constituency. 2019 is therefore a year when we must choose carefully and vote in a representative who feels concerned about the challenges of the zone and is dedicated to working out solutions in conjunction with relevant sections of government.”

Prince Eniola Oyeyode, an Ejigbo Prince, is a Banker and an aspirant for the House of Representatives election coming up in 2019. He is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and according to him, “I am a loyal party man and I am in politics to redefine the system and make it serve the people better.”
