Prince Dele Kosoko, a House of Representatives aspirant for Badagry FederalÂ Constituency on the platform of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, has said thatÂ politics is not a game for mediocres.
Declaring his intention to vie for the position, he added that politics involvesÂ lobbying and realignment.
â€œI am in the race for obvious reasons, and that is to bring development to BadagryÂ and its environs by exploring our natural resources, which our past representativesÂ have failed to do.
â€œBadagry is a border community. If by the grace of God and by your support I amÂ given the opportunity to serve, I will make sure that within 200 days in office, aÂ bill empowering all border communities to benefit from derivation on naturalÂ resources will be sponsored and passed into law,â€ he assured.
â€œI can assure you the earnings from goods and automobiles that come through ourÂ border is enough to develop Badagry and its environs and make it a touristsÂ attraction.
â€œI am sure the bill will scale through because my fellow colleagues from borderÂ areas will not hesitate to support it. To be a lawmaker at the federal level goesÂ beyond just sitting at the chamber. It involves lobbying, consultation andÂ connection,â€ he said.
