The House of Assembly candidate for Amuwo-Odofin constituency 1 under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state, Hon. Mojisola Alli-Macaulay has unveiled her agenda for the people of the area if elected on March 2.
Alli-Macaulay, a journalist and former deputy leader of Amuwo-Odofin legislative council who represented Ward B1 in the council area, said women are natural multipliers and good at lobbying.
She therefore solicited the votes of the constituents to enable her deliver on a number of legislative agenda she has in stock for her people.
According to Alli-Macaulay, that there is nothing comparable to being an experienced legislator at the grassroots. Only an experienced grassroots legislator would know where the shoe pinches at the grassroots. I have been part of the business of making by-laws, for the local government, at least for a number of years. So, I was part of the enactment of all the bylaws which means I know most of the problems that affect the local government at that time, which is still pertinent up until this time.
“I am going to focus on the youths of my constituency. I see them as the most vulnerable elements of the society. The women, the children and the elderly, and as you know, that the business of legislation is making law but I will also go extra miles to consolidate on what’s on ground, in terms of lobbying dividends of democracy to the people of Amuwo-Odofin from top government establishments, and try to see how we can make the best of all these opportunities, to enrich and better the lives of our people, Alli-Macaulay said.
Speaking further, Alli-Macaulay said, “I will say that this is a very calculated opportunity that I would not take for granted. I will try my possible best to ensure that I give my all to my constituency. I will try as much as possible to lobby. Women are very good at lobbying. We try to make things happen. We are natural multipliers.
“Women will nurture anything you put into their care with absolute dedication, and you can trust me, that the best is what I will give. I would ensure that whatever gains that the local government or my constituency is enjoying at the moment, I will consolidate on it, I will improve on it, and I will see ways by which we can bring in goodies to all and sundries.
“All the people in my constituency will benefit from my stewardship in the Lagos Assembly and I make bold to say that no voter will regret casting their vote for me. I won’t discriminate against anyone no matter your religion, tribes or gender colouration. I wish to be the best lawmaker ever produced by Amuwo Odofin constituency 1,” the former councillor stressed.
