The former house of representatives, Hon Rotimi Makinde has declared interest to represent the good people of Ile-Ife federal constituency at the National Assembly comes 2023.
He promised quality and effective representation if elected come 2023 to represent his people at the green chambers, Abuja with numerous projects that will touch lives of the people directly. 

He called on stakeholder of the party and media outlets to assist him in projecting to the world that Ife Federal Constituency can still be made better in terms of representation at the National Assembly.

He said he sees Ife developing, prosper and becoming the pride of Africa and the Black race to undoubtedly be his sincere joy and that has always been his wish.

He said in sounding immodest, as he move around Ife interacting with regular Nigerians, he listen to their concerns about unfulfilled expectations, frustrations, cluelessness and sometimes disillusionment by the current representation they have at the hallowed chamber. Yet, he said he still see the excitement, determination and hope on their faces as they crave for better alternative to what they currently have.

Also, he said in spite of the many challenges the people of Ile-Ife federal constituency face, it is quite remarkable that his people have refused to give up, hence they have made a clarion call to him to be their representative at the hallowed chamber in the coming 10th Assembly. 

"It is inspiring that amidst difficulties and growing anxiety over the future of my constituents, my people have refused to succumb to despair and hopelessness. This never-say-die attitude gives me immense hope and it is one of the reasons why I can never give up on my people neither will I disappoint them or ignore to me to serve them at the House of Representatives come 2023.

I have traveled this route before in the 7th Assembly, between 2011 to 2015, it is a familiar terrain for me. As I am comimg back to the office again I make bold to say that I will bring our tendencies together and unite my constituents and as well bring governance even closer to the people and to mentor the next generation. I will also extend my commitment to galvanising my constituents irrespective of tribe, religious background or political persuasion. There is so much work to be done by way of legislation in many areas of our life including but not limited to education, health, power, infrastructure and alleviation of poverty, socio-economic empowerment etc. I believe many of these deficits can be addressed through meaningful and impactful legislation." He said.

Historically the House of Representatives was established to be the people’s House and for the people‘s business. It follows therefore that Honourable Member must be the people’s voice elected to do the people‘s business and champion their cause and in doing so, fulfilling their hopes and aspiration. This is the kind of Federal parliamentarian I intend and hope to be for the second time after the attempt was aborted in 2015. 

Makinde said he have the requisite experience matched with wealth of knowledge to offer quality representation to his people and to facilitate Federal presence to his consistency with the primary aim of making life more abundant for his people socio-economically. 

"It is also my resolve to unleash the full potentials of my ability to uphold the policy thrust law making. I have taken copious mental and physical notes and its time for implementation in the interest of Ife Federal Constituency." He added.

However, while he was in the House between 2011 to 2015 the government at the Centre was PDP, his successor also suffers similar situation because the Cenre is controlled by the APC. Sadly, situation like this doesn't make Federal presence to be drawn to the constituency at a desirous pace due to sheer political differences. Therefore, he appealed to the people of ile-ife to ensure that they have APC holding sway at the Ward Level, Local Govt Level, State Assembly Level, Federal Legislative Level, and at the Centre, a political scenario like this will significanltly help to fast track and deepen development across board in the over all interest of the people without any encumbrance.

He hunbly stated his glaring potentials and his previous achievements and strengths to have become for many a frustrating puzzle; for others it is a topic for national debate; and yet for another group, it is doomsday lament. But as a progressive and open-minded Nigerian, he considered it a golden opportunity and a great chance to display his courage, rekindle his innovative instinct, showcase his character and turn the Great Ife's dream into reality as a Federal ranking Lawmaker with the blessing from the royal father, who he strongly hold in high esteem, His Royal Highness, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II). 

Similarly, He commended his political leader and mentor, the Executive Governor of Osun State, His Excellency Adegboyega Oyetola for his unwavering support for him in all ramifications. He prayed that May God bless him abundantly and make him realize his reelection into office in  Osun State. 

"His legacy projects, especially interventions in capacity building and human capital development cannot be lost on the good and great people of Osun State which is why they have all resolved to throw their weights behind him to run the affairs of the state for another for years, deservedly so.

Our party, the APC, at its inception in July 2013, offered a great hope for many Nigerians as a potent alternative to the ruling PDP back then. We have in our fold selfless leaders who cherish democratic principles and practice and who have demonstrated their patriotism in deepening democracy." Makinde maintained. 

Regardless of the loud and lavish political propaganda, deceit, official impunity and unjust applications of powers of patronage and sanctions by the PDP, let me assure you that our party remains strong and capable of fulfilling the nation’s thirst for change, development and prosperity. And we shall do so united across regions, religions and generations.

He said his politics have always been guided by the enduring values of fairness and justice, honesty of purpose, the pursuit of excellence, selflessness and the love for my country. These values also characterize his conduct in business as well as in public and private life.

He said, Nigeria must and will be great with the support and prayers from well meaning citizens including the media, he said APC will change this country for good. by creating a country that will truly be the pride of the black race. 

"APC will surely create a new Nigeria for all Nigerians. And I assure the people of Ife that a vote for me as a Representative at the National Assembly is a vote for positive and fruitful change for their well-being. 

As APC family our unity is our strength, and our diversity is our power. Let us continue to work in synergy so that our party will only not remain relevant but to also record more feats and milestones politically." He concluded.
