In her declaration notifying her social media followers;
Dear friends, I wish to formally notify you of my desire to represent Abeokuta North/Obafemi Owode/Odeda federal constituency in @HouseNGR on the platform of @ADPng in 2019, God willing. #RinsolaForReps
This decision was reached after months of careful thought and extensive consultations, and is predicated upon the strong conviction that my people deserve dutiful representation. I am prepared & fully equipped to provide this. #RinsolaForReps
I feel deeply connected to my people as I spent most of my formative years in Ogun state. I got most of my education in Abeokuta (primary, secondary and tertiary) and I have voted in my hometown since I became eligible to vote; Ogun Central has always been home. #RinsolaForReps
For 3 years, I have worked as a Special Assistant to the Speaker of @HouseNGR, Hon @YakubDogara. I’ve keenly observed parliamentary proceedings & if elected, the experience garnered will enable me get to work immediately without needing to first ‘learn the ropes’. #RinsolaForReps
I have consistently advocated for youth and women inclusion, and I believe that there is no better way to transition from tokenism to meaningful inclusion than to utilise this law by running for office. #RinsolaForReps
Presently, youths & women aren’t represented in the Ogun state caucus of @nassnigeria. This is a travesty. As stakeholders & active citizens, we deserve representation at the highest levels as we also possess the skill set required to bring about positive change. #RinsolaForReps
As a legislator, my areas of focus shall include health care, agriculture, youth and women empowerment and restructuring through constitution amendment. I hope that as always, I can count on your support. Thank you. #RinsolaForReps #OmoAkin2019
