She made her intention known at the constituency’s party secretariat to represent the Ibadan South-West constituency in the Oyo State House of Assembly.
She said, “My willingness to serve my people and the importance of getting what my people need made me come into politics. I am assuring my people in the constituency that I will ensure they get what they need. I have the capacity to deliver the dividends of democracy to my constituents.
“It is true that my father is the Olubadan of Ibadan land, but I am not contesting in order to use my father’s influence to get the party’s ticket and win, I want people to know that I have the capacity and I am not going to capitalise on my father’s influence. I want my people to support me for what and who I am.”
