- Former aspirant of Kosofe House of Assembly Constituency II seat in 2019, Hon. Samuel Adebayo, has said he would soon make official declaration to run the race again.
The USA-based founder of Succour for Health and Education Foundation, recently returned to the country ahead of the All Progressives Congress House of Assembly primary election.
In the past four years, he said he had organized free medical care and drugs for the people and as well distributed comprehensive HMO plans worth millions of naira as his contribution to the people of Kosofe.
Other empowerment programmes executed, according to him, include distribution of home appliances and working tools, scholarship and cash grant to beneficiaries across Kosofe wards.
Recently, he shared N25,000 each to 20 beneficiaries and 20 bags of rice to the constituents through Abdulwahid Islamic Foundation.
Political stakeholders who align with his empowering people’s programme, described him as a philanthropist who had made significant socioeconomic contributions by touching lives without discrimination.
He once contested for Kosofe Constituency II seat in 2019 on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) but withdrew for the late Hon. Tunde Braimoh, who later died on July 10, 2020, after a brief illness.
He also succumbed to the party’s supremacy during the 2020 Kosofe Constituency II Bye-election and supported the party candidate, Hon. Femi Saheed materially and financially.
He said he would soon make official declaration of his ambition.
