According to the APC chieftain, “since 1999 we have all witnessed what all the past lawmakers from the constituency had been able to do for our people and there are still very many greater things to achieve to meet up with the growing rate and expansion taking place in Ibadan North.
“Ibadan North being the biggest local government in Oyo state in the area of population is in need of a selfless, committed and spirited individual who has excelled in private life and ready to bring his local and international experience to bear in turning things around for the better.
“I, Prince Olaide Musiliu Akinremi will not only facilitate federal government projects to grow our people and make their life better, I will use my personal emoluments to make our people smile and proud once again.
“For sometimes, I have set up vocational centres in Yemetu, Ibadan North local government area where our youths and women are being trained to learn computer, tailoring, hairdressing, barbing, modern cooking of foreign and local foods, make-up, among others. On graduation, we provide them with incentives to be self reliant. Scores of other indigent students scattered all over Ibadanland are being sponsored in higher institutions for them to excel and be the best they can in future,” Akinremi added
He assured that aside projects in the area of school constructions, potable water, solar energy and distribution of transformers to engender regular power supply for our people. He also pledged to institute a quarterly town hall meetings to meet our people and interface with them to know their pressing area of needs and empower them accordingly.
Prince Akinremi enjoined the people not to vote for those who had been deceiving them over the years but scrutinize programmes and sincerity of those coming to them to ask for their votes in 2019 because ‘once beaten is twice shy.’
He thereafter sought for their votes for him to win handsomely the 2019 elections, just as he begged them to also cast their votes for all APC candidates from President Muhammadu Buhari to Senator Abiola Ajimobi as Oyo South Senator, Chief Bayo Adelabu as the Governor and other house of assembly candidates of the APC in Ibadan North constituencies 1 and 2 and other constituencies in Oyo state.
