Princess Uzamat Folashayo Akinbile has stated that the untold hardship and suffering often faced byÂ people in her constituency (Alimosho Local Government Area Lagos )Â prompted her to seek for a seat in Lagos State House of Representatives under the platform of Action Congress (AC) in 2011 general elections.
Akinbile made this statement at the Amazement Centre, Gowon Estate, while launching a N65 million Campaign Organisation and Empowerment Programme simply tagged PRUZAMAT.
â€œI have lived closely with the people for over 25 years and I know where their shoes pinch them.
“So, it is time for a relief. I will put smile on their faces,â€ she stated.
Mrs. Akinbile, who spoke amid boisterous cheers, disclosed thatÂ her vision is to contribute immensely to the rapid transformation of the state so that it will be on the world map as megacity and “my mission is to establish a strong financial sector that will attract foreign investors. I will equally develop and rehabilitate some of our infrastructure and promote our culture.”
