In Temi's words "Good day, friends, fathers, and mothers. I would like a bit of your time to quickly present my reasons for contesting the next elections in Okitipupa-Irele federal constituency for membership of the House of Representatives and to rally your support.
My name is Temitope Kolawole, born over three decades ago to hardworking parents whose story is the common story of many and who’s good and down times have been affected invariably by decisions made at the corridors of power.
As a kid, I watched the struggles of families and saw the most disadvantaged in the streets. Slowly as I grew, it dawned on me I should not always be an onlooker. I could really make a change.
As a Youth Corp member, I immersed myself into community service and my efforts were kindly acknowledged by the Lagos State government. Encouraged by this, I continued with giving myself to those who needed a shoulder to lean on. Even as I worked to earn a living, I considered this a part of me which I could not deny. The nagging feeling to do something to make a change often would interlude my struggle to gain more knowledge, and to prepare myself for a greater task I feel is imminent.
It did not take long before I realized I could do a lot more by seating in that chamber where laws are made, to represent you with the same compassion, and forthrightness that has spur on my Assured Future Empowerment Initiative, and the UN-SDG engagement.
Even though I am proud of our achievements so far, having enrolled ten thousand students in school and empowering five thousand women, I feel the need to input speed as to be able to do far more.
If you give me your mandate, I will be able to do more, and put to use the great ideas which many of our truly dependable comrades have shared, also, to make you proud as I render excellent representation. I cannot do this alone. Your financial, as well as moral support is what can make this happen. As we move on with our campaign in the *ADC*( African Democratic Congress) party.
I want to count on your help, so we may bring about the right future for us and our kids.
Let’s do this together! Your donation to the GoFoundMe account link below will be most appreciated as acknowledgement is dully forwarded.
