In last Seven and half years, as a Honourable Member Of The Federal House Of Representatives and Chairman, House Committee On Industries, I have offered Distinctive and Qualitative Representation.
I have also embarked on Human Capital Development Programme, Community Development Projects and Social Intervention Initiative with direct and positive impacts on the Constituents.

 

There is poverty in Town, therefore the members of the Legislative Arm of Government have to complement the Executive functions.

 

I do not want to see the people of Lagos Island Constituency 1 and its environment suffer.

 

As a Grassroot man, I always ensure that residents are empowered and supported to nurture their dreams, aspirations and potentials for Self-developmemt and actualisation.

 

Though, oftentimes, some people tend to cause distraction but I am not bothered about it.

 

The fact is, when I do my best, some people will appreciate while others may not. Indeed,
I am convinced between Man and God that I have done my best; but I will do more.

 

For the record, there are many people who truly appreciates our Empowerment Programmes, Community Development Projects and Social Intervention Activities. I am not in competition with anybody but I am doing what I know is the best for the good people of Lagos Island Constituency 1 and that is my source of inspiration.

 

Since I was elected as a Federal Lawmaker,
we have spent over Four Hundred Million Naira (N400 Million) on Human Capital Development, Community Development Projects And Social Intervention Programmes.

 

All our People-oriented Programmes were specifically designed to alleviate Poverty, support and boost local Trade, Small and Medium Scale Businesses and bring Prosperity To All.

 

To promote learning and knowledge acquisition among indigent pupils, I facilitated the construction of Twelve (12) Blocks of Classrooms and with Watercloset Toilet at Dr. Teslim Elias Primary School Isale-Eko, Lagos Island.

 

I also facilitated the construction of Road Networks in Olowogbo area, Lagos Island Local Government.

 

To ensure access to a clean and portable water in Lagos Island Constituency 1 and its environment, I constructed 10 Borehole Water Systems in all the Political wards.

 

To improve the well-being of the Constituents, I provided Health Insurance Scheme for 350 Residents.

 

We have distributed five (5) Vehicles to the Political wards in Lagos Island Constituency 1. These cars were gifted for intracity commercial purpose; the incomes generated are to be shared monthly among the Vulnerable.

 

In addition, over Twenty-five (25) Tricycles were presented to residents for commercial Purpose.

 

Similarly, we have gifted Equipment worth Millions of Naira to Artisans on Lagos Island Local Government Area; Work Tools such as Sewing Machines, Motorised Pepper Grinding Machines and Hair Dryers.

 

Over Two Hundred (200) Electric Power Generator Set and Deep Freezers have been presented to Small and Medium Scale Enterpreneurs in Lagos Island Federal Constituency 1.

 

I have disbursed over N10 Million Capital to Start-ups across the Ten (10) Political wards.

 

I secured Federal and State Government’s Job for some Residents of Lagos Island Federal Constituency 1.

 

I have also facilitated the Federal Government’s Continous Covid-19 Grants and Palliative measures for Constituents

 

In Partnership with the Industrial Training Institute(ITF), we organised Skill Acquisition and Vocational Training for unemployed youths, ICT Training, Solar Panels Technology Training, Fish and Crayfish Farming, Mushrooms cultivation and many more.

 

A N100,000 Grant was given to each of the Resident trained at the Programme.

 

Graduates and Undergraduates were trained in Information and Communication Technology.

 

A total of Twenty Laptop Computers were presented to them.

 

Solar Panel Technologists were presented with Equipment Boxes.

To ensure a safer and secured Community, I funded the installation of Solar Power Street lightings at Eletu Iwashe Quarters.

 

I financed the rehabilitation and construction of new Toilets and provided Furniture, Learning Materials, Ceiling Fans, electric bulbs fittings for King Ado High School on Ojo Giwa Street, Lagos Island.

 

I organised Periodic Coaching for Pupils and Secondary school students. I usually pay the Teachers and Instructors.

 

Annual Distribution of Free General Certificate Examinations (GCE) and Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) forms to Secondary school students across the Constituency.

 

There are numerous motions that I have sponsored on the floor of the Federal House of Representatives. One of such is the motion to expand and beautify the Muritala International Airport road, A gesture applauded by the Federal and Lagos State Governments. The Project has been executed and delivered. It reduces traffic hold-ups and travel time.

 

In the past, the bad roadnetwork did not dignify that corridor of the country.

 

Indeed, I am happy that I moved the motion.

 

I also initiated a motion to eject fuel Tankers parking indiscriminately on Eko bridge.

 

The unabated parking could weaken the bridge and lead to avoidable collapse. The Bridge is a major link between the Mainland and Lagos Island.

 

I have also sponsored the Mathematical Centre Act, Amendment Bill ( HB 355)

 

I have sponsored more than four bills awaiting Third reading. This include :

 

Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, Alteration Bill (HB 613)

Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition) Law Enforcement and Administration Act (Amendment Bill) Co- Sponsor, (HB 822)

Elderly and Vulnerable Persons Bill (HB 822)

Government Infrastructural Continuity (Establishment) Bill (HB-907)

I moved a Motion to resolve persistent Traffic gridlock at Apapa Port and its environment

I also moved a motion to compensate the victims of Abule Ado Bomb explosion.

No matter how many Motions or Bills a Legislator sponsors, People do not even want to know whether it will better their lives, they prefer Physical projects.

As the 2023 general elections approaches, this is my message to Lagos Island Federal Constituency 1 residents and every Nigerian;

I urge you to vote for me, Dr. Enitan Dolapo Badru) , the Presidential candidate of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC),
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other APC Candidates in Lagos State and across the country so that we can deliver more dividends of democracy.

I will continue to offer responsive and Qualitative Representation to my Constituents and facilitate Community Development Projects to Lagos Island Federal Constituency 1.

Lagos State deserves a Special Status, As a Leader of the Lagos Caucus, my colleagues and I would continue to push for it.

I Will Continue To Take Good Care Of My People.
