By: Nurudeen Iyanu, Abeokuta

Senator Solomon Adeola (APC, Lagos West) and the chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance, has finally declared his intention to run for the seat of Ogun West Senatorial District in the 2023 election. 

At the declaration rally organized by West-to-West Convergence for Dapo Abiodun(W2W4DA) group, the senator said he is heeding the clarion call of his people to return home to contribute to the development of his people as he has done for Lagos West as their senator in the last six years and counting.  

“I want to thank God Almighty and the governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, my leader and governor and all other leaders from Ogun West for their interest in me and their well wishes leading to the event of today in Ilaro, the administrative headquarters of Ogun West. I am officially declaring to heed their call as their son to run as a candidate for Ogun West Senatorial District in the 2023 election” Senator Adeola stated.

The chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance declared that as the W2W4DA has stated there is no vacancy in Oke Mosan in 2023, as Governor Abiodun is returning for a second term based on his achievements so far in his first term, adding that the style of governance of the governor has ensured that all parts of Ogun State to the ward level has one development project or another to point to.

He noted that "this is unlike what happened in the past with concentration of multi-billion naira projects in some areas". 

The Senator disclosed that over the years he had been contributed to the development of Ogun West Senatorial district through personal efforts and facilitations of projects which will increase in leaps and bounds, if he is eventually elected as the senator representing Ogun West in the Red Chamber.
