He said this is the reason the constituents “consistently asked me to present myself to represent them.”
Once elected, he said, “I will represent and advocate constituents’ interests, articulate and take a position on issues; educate and inform my people about legislation, good governance, and the dividends of democracy.
“I will push for bills that will liberate our people from poverty, unemployment, human rights abuses, insecurity, and absence of basic amenities.”
For the utilisation of constituency’s intervention funds, he said he would push for projects that facilitate the enhancement of health, education, security, and infrastructure available to his constituents.
Should he secure the APC ticket, Mr Adebowale, who has been involved in several campaigns for good governance, would seek to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party which has won the legislative seat in the past four elections.
