He said: “I, Hon Owoade, stand before you today to use this epoch making event of my birthday to humbly and respectfully notify you of my intention to contest the forthcoming APC primaries and ultimately in the 2023 General election to be elected as Member, Osun State House of Assembly, to represent Irewole/Isokan constituency, on the platform of our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I have adequately prepared myself after being elected to effectively and skillfully deploy the official means of lobbying to ensure that the rights and privileges of our constituents are not negotiated away.
“I want to express my sincere appreciation to all present here today, for creating the time to participate in this historic event of my declaration to contest for the above seat.
