One of the leaders on behalf of others said, “… Sesi has rehabilitated some bad roads in some communities, he recently re-equipped a Primary Healthcare Centre located in Pota, where the whole hospital was refurbished and re-equipped with both medical and non-medical equipment worths several millions. During the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, when no one could go out to fend for our families for survival, when most of our political leaders were nowhere to be found, Sesi came to our rescue by regularly ditching out fantabulous relief materials;funds and foods packages to virtually all our communities in the three local government council. There are physically challenged individuals who have benefitted from his kindness, on every festive period, his welfare packages are second to none. On behalf of the other leaders, we are using this our visit to appreciate your kindness, philanthropic gestures and to also tell you that we are solidly behind you in your quest to contest for the Federal House of Representative seat to represent Badagry. You have our unalloyed support ”

The young philanthropist further reiterated that he is passionate about Badagry and it’s development. That either he is offered the honour to represent the constituent at lower chamber of the National Assembly or not, he would continue to do his best to develop Badagry. But given the opportunity to serve will make him serve them better with every available legislative powers.

My ambition to contest for Badagry Federal House of Representative is totally borne out of my passion to serve my people at that level, but if you don’t want me there’s nothing I can do, because your will come first. But I am assuring you, if you send me, it will not be business as usual. I will ensure Badagry’s lost glory is restored. I will ensure we bridge the Socio-economic and infrastructural gap between Badagry and development at all cost. All I need is your genuine supports and prayers. ” he concluded.
