Segun Adewale popularly called Aeroland, is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Lagos West Senatorial District. Here he speaks on why he ventures into politics, his plans for his constituents if elected and the chances of his party in the forthcoming.
The ideal political situation for me is the one where good governance prevails. Therefore, my idea of politics is to promote good governance which involves offering and sacrificing myself for a selfless service to the people.
Thus for me therefore, my mission in politics and desire to be in government is to contribute my quota to the development goal of our great nation, Nigeria.
My desire of going to the Senate is to contribute to the formulation of positive life-changing bills especially for the people of my senatorial district.
Thus in my quest to positively and directly impact on the socio-economic well being of the generality of the people irrespective of their tribe, language or religion, I intend to lobby other Senators to pass such positive, life-changing bills into law.
Also, I intend to give the people of the Lagos West Senatorial District a voice in the scheme of things. I want to end the obvious neglect and marginalisation of the people of this senatorial district. I want to ensure that never again shall we only be a pool for votes during elections and then parasites when the time for development is being considered at the state level.
I will put all efforts into seeing that dignifying jobs are created and the majority of the people, particularly women and youths are empowered.
I believe that all these will reduce poverty, guarantee that the environment is viable and conducive for business to thrive as well as bring peace and prosperity to our land with adequate security.
With a population of over 10 million people occupying a land mass totaling two-third of Lagos State, I believe and I am convinced that Lagos West deserves more.
