The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Ibadan North Federal Constituency election next month for a seat in the House of Representatives, Mr Lanre Sarumi, has been tipped to win the exercise.

According to a group known as the Young Progressives in Oyo State (YPO), the young politician has every quality to represent the people of the region in the lower chamber of the National Assembly.

In a statement signed by the president of the organisation, Mr Wale Adeoye, the PDP’s flag-bearer remains the best candidate for the position because of his comprehensive youth-focused agenda that could liberate the younger generations.

The group added that his track record is unprecedented and unmatched among the candidates vying for Ibadan North federal constituency.

“Born Olanrewaju Olalekan Sarumi into the Akintayo Basiri-Sarumi Family of Abebi in Ibadan Oyo state. Sarumi is a Software Technology Delivery Consultant, who has consulted for various sector organisations such as insurance, health sector, government, non-for-profit organisations and more, supporting software implementation at multiple capacity,” YPO said.

The group added that his achievements outside office have been a reference point, not only in Ibadan North but in the state capital as a whole.

“He is building an ultra-modern toilet infrastructure in the Polytechnic Ibadan and pioneered light up projects in the inner parts of the city, an initiative his opponent, Akinremi of APC, hurriedly replicated,” the group said.

The group pointed out that he has embarked on different local empowerment programmes, including: Medical outreach; employment of four ad-hoc staff at Sabo medical centre; Market women empowerment; bore hole provision; disbursement of bursaries to primary school pupils in Oke-itunu among others.

“Sarumi’s style of leadership is an example of inclusive society. He is leading a legacy of contributing one’s quota to governance, even while you are not part of it yet. This is the type of person needed to sustain leadership in Ibadan North. He is one man for all in Ibadan North.”

“Let other candidates, including the self-acclaimed Jagaban in Ibadan North, tell us how many people have benefited from him politically,” it added.
