Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate for Ekiti North Federal Constituency One in the 2023 General Elections ,Hon Bimbo Daramola (alias congressman) has promised to bring the good times of selfless service and robust representation back to his constituents, if re-elected.
Daramola, in a statement entitled: “Reputation is the basis to believe promises” said he had not only laid bare his records of achievements in and out of the office,the beneficiaries of such benevolence have also attested to the facts.
The former member of the National Assembly expressed joy that some beneficiaries of his education and social intervention programmes have not only acknowledged them but they have also come out to share their success stories even without being prompted.
The convener of the OneUnitedAfrica initiative therefore challenged his co-contestants to substantiate their impact on the lives of the people in tangible terms , such that their claims can also be subjected to public scrutiny. .
The candidate for Oye/ Ikole said “This time let the world know that you are gullible but intelligent enough to make informed decision .That you cannot be railroaded by any leader’s directive or cajoled with the empty sentiments of political party loyalty that is for the protection of the status quo “
“When I said we will bring the good times back, this is one of the things we intend to revive in the service of our people.
“I ask that our people will remember that my quest to serve as your representative with utmost sincerity has been tried, tasted, and so you have a REASONABLE basis to trust me.
“May I also say, I had left the parliament two to three years when we did this social intervention.
“We have laid a foundation that we can build on, I believe if there is nothing too, there is nothing to build on. Let everyone bring their IMPACT PROFILE and not promises. No Stories.” the statement reads in part.
“When I left the National Assembly, I continued with the efforts to see to it that Ekiti Youth desirous of tertiary education are not stopped by the JAMB forms. The very first step.
“As little as that may be, a lot of bright and smart young Ekiti youth ‘s dreams of becoming Medical Doctors, Engineers , Geologists , Broadcasters had got thwarted in the past.
So in year 2017 and 2018, as God would so enable me, I gave 2050 #YOUTH of Ekiti FREE JAMB FORMS, the largest till date by any individual, organisation and indeed Government, with a commitment to assist them in my little ways through school, which I did for those who kept in touch.
“With that barrier out of way, we had young Ekitis who scored as high as 300 marks at the examination.
This little social intervention paved the way, and a good number out of them baring ASUU strike are graduates today, this is excluding those I did before I got into politics and those we did yearly as Member House of Representatives.[2011-2015]
“This is one of the colours in my rainbow reputation that I humbly bring to the aspiration to represent my good people of EKITI NORTH FEDERAL CONSTITUENCY.
“Lastly the party I belonged to then did not ask me to embark on anything, whatever I did came from my heart , and i did not leave the heart behind when I left.
“Today, i assure you my people of the renewal of my unshakeable abiding faith to serve you more if you invest your mandate by electing me to represent you at the House of Representatives in 2023.
“WITH ME, YOUR VOTE IS NOT A GAMBLE, thats why I am putting my reputation before you. ” Daramola assured.
