An entrepreneur, Kehinde Teluwo, has emerged as the New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP) senatorial candidate for Ogun Central for the 2023 general elections.
Teluwo’s emergence was through a consensus arrangement of theparty.
Teluwo who addressed journalists on his emergence shortly afterwards said he would justify the confidence that theparty leadership had reposed in him by picking him.
Teluwo made it clear that he would do all in his power to ensure the quality representation of his people at the upper legislative chamber.
He added that the past and the present representatives of the senatorial district did not know the functions of a senator, emphasising that no bill had ever been sponsored by them in favour of the people they represented at the Senate.
He said, “I have come to change the old narratives and my people should be expecting the dividend of democracy in full if I am allowed to represent them in the House of Senate in 2023.”
“Enough is enough for thepolitical injustice from the old cabals that had been in charge of Ogun Central Senatorial District. It is time for the youth to take over and the time is now,” he said.
