Rotimi Makinde declares intention to contest for Ife Federal Constituency.


A former member of House of Representatives, Rotimi Makinde, has declared his intention to run for the office again in 2023 under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Makinde, who represented Ife Federal Constituency in the 7th National Assembly between 2011 and 2015, made the formal declaration at a news conference on Tuesday in Ile-Ife, Osun.

He said that his decision to contest was in response to clarion calls on him by his constituents to represent them again in the 10th National Assembly because of unfulfilled expectations.

Makinde promised to prioritise youth and human capital development if elected to represent Ife Federal Constituency in 2023 National Assembly election.

“There’s so much work to be done by way of legislation in many areas of our life including, but not limited to education, health, power, infrastructure and alleviation of poverty and socio-economic empowerment.

“I have the requisite experience matched with wealth of knowledge to offer quality representation and to facilitate Federal presence to my consistency so as to make life more abundant for my people socio-economically.

“I consider it a golden opportunity and a great chance to display my courage, rekindle my innovative instinct, showcase my character and turn the Great Ife’s dream into reality as a federal lawmaker,” Makinde said.

He commended Gov. Adegboyega Oyetola for his unwavering support and congratulated Sen. Iyiola Omisore on his recent election as the National Secretary of APC.

“Nigeria must and will be great again, no matter the vicious wishes of the opposition; with the prayer and support from all well meaning citizenry, including the media, we will change this country for good.

“We will create a country that will truly be the pride of the black race; APC will surely create a new Nigeria for all Nigerians.

“And I assure the people of Ife that a vote for me as their representative at the National Assembly is a vote for positive and fruitful change for their well-being,” Makinde said.
