The newly elected member of the House of Representatives, representing Yewa/Ipokia federal constituency in Ogun state, Hon. Akinlade Abiodun Isiaq, has been described as a record breaker in the state after winning his fourth term election as a member of the national assembly.
In a congratulatory message made available to journalists in Abuja, a frontline Development Communication expert and an ideaprenuer, Olayode Abdurasaq aka Philosopher King, said it is now on record that Akinlade is the first candidate to be voted into the national assembly for the fourth time.
Akinlade of the All Progressive Congress (APC) defeated his closest rival of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during last Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections with a total of 26, 171 votes against the PDPs 22, 503 votes.
Olayode, who also doubles as a life coach and on-air personality praised Akinlade, saying his victory is well deserved after his vigorous campaigns across the Federal Constituency.
” This is a well deserved victory, it is also a testament to the fact that Hon. Akinlade is well loved among his people. This is a man who has generated the highest number of federal employment for his people, he is a grassroots man who does not shy away from his constituency,” Olayode said.
He also said Hon Akinlade has the capacity and what it takes to excel as a Member of House of Representatives, having served for three terms consecutively where he recorded remarkable achievements. He described the four term house member as a top ranking politician with impeccable records of service to the people.
While recalling the rigorous campaign, Olayode said it is a lesson for all upcoming leaders while he also advised the people of Yewa /Ipokia especially Owode, Akinlade’s hometown to know what they want and what they want should be genuine and realistic.
Olayode urged Hon Akinlade to continue to work hard to deliver more dividends of democracy to his constituents and continue to offer good representation at the lower chamber of the National Assembly when he assumes office for the 4th time.
He also advised Hon Akinlade to put the interest of his constituents first as a Federal Lawmaker and shun white elephant projects that will not have immediate and future positive impacts on the lives of the people he is representing.
