The Member representing Ilorin East/Ilorin South Federal Constituency in House of Representatives, Ganiyu Saka Olododo says the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has formidable structure to win 2023 general elections in Kwara State.

Olododo disclosed this during a Media Parley in his Constituency Office, Ilorin.

According to him, “In 2018/2019 during OTOGE revolution, we believe we are going to have inclusive governance. I believe in inclusiveness. We got the change through ballot with support of many people but Kwara State Governor has his own agenda, which we didn’t know ab initio. I advised Governor Abdulrazaq physically and on phone to avoid crisis in the party but some people were fueling it for personal benefits.

“I left APC for SDP after a long wait for possible resolution of differences and due consultation with my constituents. I have experience in Kwara Politics and value people alot. I listened to people’s yearning. SDP has formidable structure to win 2023 general elections in Kwara State.”

Olododo expressed optimism on his chance of winning 2023 election; “My performance and antecedent will speak for me. Yinka Aluko is my junior brother and friend but the people would decide. I will win again on the platform of SDP Insha Allah.”

The Ilorin born Politician said SDP Governorship Candidate, Hakeem Lawal has better chance of winning Kwara 2023 election as a young, talented and schooled man and based on his father’s antecedent.

Hakeem Lawal stands a better chance of winning the election than anyone in the opposition. He is intelligent and wise. He is a young man that has native intelligence to develop the state. He will run an inclusive government and that is our approach in SDP. We have formidable structure in the three Senatorial districts and will win. Power of incumbency wouldn’t be a factor in 2023 general elections. Oyetola was defeated in Osun State. We defeated incumbent government in 2019. Many people will abandon the Governor before 2023 general elections,” he explained.

Speaking on his performance at the federal house of representatives, Olododo said, “All the 23 wards in my constituency have benefited from dividends of democracy due to qualify representation. No ward is left out including those in the rural areas.”

“The last three years have been eventful and interesting. I have changed the narrative as a grassroot person and experienced politician. I am living with my people. I achieved everything from Ilorin. From being a local government Chairman to Chief of Staff to Governor and Secretary to the State Government. I understand the people because I am one of them.

According to him, as a lawmaker, he has sponsored several bills and motions.

He said that the Senate and House of Representatives just passed his bill on the establishment of Federal Medical Center, Fufu in Ilorin South local government area and awaiting Mr. President’s assent.

“In terms of legislation, I have also changed the narratives like I did in every position I’ve been privileged to hold.

He said that the House of Representatives Committee on National Planning and Economic Development that he chaired has become more relevant than before.

He added that they now do regular oversight and publish reports annually.
