Since the emergence of Democracy in Nigeria in 1999, the nation has witnessed 23 Years of uninterrupted Democratic reign.

In what has become a ‘ritual’ and a norm, every Four Years, electorates go to the poll to cast their vote for individuals seeking elective positions.

The aim of the electorates is to enjoy the dividends of Democracy with provision of basic amenities, trusting and optimistic  for a better future, cast their votes for their preferred Candidates.

Sadly, the hope of this electorates are often time dashed, as promises made by those seeking elective  positions are not fulfilled, with the commonwealth of the people been hijacked and siphoned by those they had trusted.

Over the years, elected representatives disassociate from the constituents after been voted into power.

In view of this anomalies, as the 2023 Election gathers momentum, Aspirants vying for different Political positions both at the State and Federal Level have indicated interest to run for various elective positions.

However, there seems to be a Wind of Change in Ikeja Constituency II, as a vibrant, Youthful, dogged, proactive and honest Aspirant has thrown its hat into the ring, to vie and represent its Constituents in the Lagos State House of Assembly race.

Hon. Dolapo Oshoffa is of many parts. To some she is an humanitarian, Courageous, versatile and an embodiment of trust and honesty, while to some, she is a fountain of wisdom where many can draw from, following her humility that is equal to none.

Born over Three Decades ago in Lagos State, the Accountant turn Politician graduated from the Prestigious Oduduwa University, Ife, Osun State with a Second Class Upper and has a Masters Degree in Public and International Affairs from the University of Lagos, UNILAG.

She has over the years had the intention to run for an elective political position with the sole aim of changing the narratives, by interfacing with her constituents, to forge and foster a cordial relationship between the constituents and their representatives which hasn’t been the norm.

Ikeja Constituency II constituents could be said not to have fully enjoyed the dividend of democracy as people oriented  programs and policies that would bring prosper and self reliance to the constituents isn’t at reach.

The passion, love and interest of her constituents at heart was what motivated Hon. Dolapo Oshoffa to vie to represent her constituency at the Hallowed Chamber come 2023 to change the dynamics, bringing to reality a New Dawn for Ikeja Constituency II.

The Enigma called Hon. Dolapo Oshoffa 

reflects the quality of honesty, integrity, courage, self-awareness, wholeheartedness, educated, enlightened, dependable, lovable, Godly, highly intellectual youth & most importantly, a very humble personality, which can be attributed to the quality of training she got & the fountain of wisdom she’s drawn much of her knowledge from, she’s been around the political spheres for a long while. 

We can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different result goes a Maxim.

Hon. Dolapo Oshoffa depicts a resourceful Youth, energetic, Open Minded and Highly Intelligent Individual who is determined to impact positively on the development of her constituency, bringing to fore giant strides, such as Social Infrastructures and sustainable development to her constituents.  

Gender equality has been the template in which  Democracy has been sustained in developed countries around the world. Galvanizing support for this Pearl of Our Time connotes to developmental strides for her constituency.

Like the saying goes; “What a Man Can Do, A Woman Can Do Better”, could be said in the case of this enterprising and visionary Woman, who has been able to carve a niche for herself, and believes her constituents needs to enjoy the dividend of democracy with people oriented driven programmes and basic amenities at their reach. 

There is need to for all and sundry to queue behind this colossus that is on a mission to improve the lives of her constituents and bring to reality the developmental growth the people has always yawned for.

No doubt, Hon Dolapo Oshoffa is the New Dawn her constituents had always yearned for. 

Hon. Dolapo Oshoffa; New Dawn, IRORUN DE ‘23!!
