A philanthropist and business magnate in Ogun State, David Olumide Aderinokun has made known his intention to run for the Ogun Central Senatorial seat in the 2023 general elections.

 

Aderinokun, aged 49, was the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) flag-bearer for Abeokuta North/Obafemi Owode/Odeda Federal Constituency in the 2019 elections but he lost his bid to the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Olumide Osoba.

 

During the coronavirus lockdown in Ogun State, the business magnate extended his support to the people of Ogun State by providing palliatives to over six thousand households in his senatorial district to ease the hardships caused by the pandemic.

 

Aderinokun who has publicly called for better welfare for Ogun State residents on several occasions, declared his readiness to grab one of the three senatorial seats in the Gateway State on Thursday.

 

“The events of the last few weeks has served as a wake-up call for the youths of Nigeria. We must channel that same energy from the streets to the ballot box. It’s our only option!!,” he tweeted.

 

“Over the next months, I Olumide Aderinokun, will begin laying the groundwork to vie for the Ogun Central Senatorial seat in the 2023 elections.

 


“This declaration is not a presumptuous self-serving move, rather it is a rallying cry to as many of us that have looked on in anger and shame as our elected officials have treated us like lepers who should be deserving of whatever they deem fit for us. It is time for us to serve.

 

“The quality of government will not improve by our delegation of our rights, or the negotiation with a class that does not care for what we think or stand for.

 

“In this same spirit, I pledge to not just mentor, but finance any well-meaning young person or persons seeking other electoral offices in my constituency (Ogun Central), together we will make our constituency the arrowhead to strive for a new nation.”
