In the history of Yagba West Constituency if Elected by God grace, Hon Oluyemisi Oshaloto will be the first female lawmaker to represent the Constituency.
*Can you tell us about yourself?*
My name is Oluyemisi Oshaloto. I am from Igbaruku, Yagba West Local Government Area of Kogi State. I am the All Progressives Congress, APC’s candidate for the House of Assembly seeking to represent Yagba West Constituency
*Can you tell us your relationship with the two communities, that will be playing match tomorrow* *(Odo-Eri Ward and Iyamerin/Igbaruku Ward?*
The two wards are actually my ward, Odo-Eri is mother’s home and my father is from Igbaruku, Yagba people will say “ile iye ra’gbà” I belong to the two wards.
*Prediction, ma, can you predict tomorrow match, how it’s going to be, and which team do you think will be winning?*
Personally I’m not too good at predicting, especially in a match Iike this because which ever team that wins, we win together, it’s a win, win for me.
*Can you tell your vision, plans for this tournament?*
If God permits me, this tournament is what I want to do for the rest of my life, I want the tournament to be more interesting, I’m planning that within our players, we should have international prayers that will be playing for different countries and teams, very soon I want to see Yagba West players in those international matches and get fulfilled.
*What is your advise for the entire youth of Yagba West Constituency?*
Youths are the backbone of every society, and the bible says when the head is Fort, what will the righteous do?
For example when parents look at their children’s, most especially when the child has good behavior, the parents will be rest assured that when they die, somebody will take good care of what they left behind, but when it’s otherwise, the parent will be scared even to die because of the type of child they want to leave behind.
My advise is that we should try to be the best among the best at all time. Irrespective of what you do for living, try your possible best to be proud of it .
*Lastly, 2023 General election, can you share with us, how you think the election will be?*
From Presidency to House Of Assembly Election, APC will win, I can assure you of that, our people are seeing our capacity and they know who to trust with power.
In conclusion, I want to urge the Youth of Yagba West Constituency to be more united and that’s one of the reasons I organized the competition. Sport is a way of uniting people, it doesn’t look like religions, languages, or where you come from, sports break barrier.
Some people left their various work, some even travelled down home just to participate in this competition.
I’m wishing every team good luck.
