Stanley Olajide Odidiomo’s giant strides in the House of Representatives.

Nigeria’s political terrain particularly its legislative arm of government has witnessed many decades of the influx of many lawmakers who are bereft of capacities and direction which has led to situations where many elected federal lawmakers who are voted by constituents to fail to pursue bills and sponsor motions that meet the yearnings of the people in key areas of their political and social needs to birth developmental initiatives.

Hon. Adedeji Stanley Olajide Odidiomo had since his first term in office as an elected Honourable after his inauguration on Tuesday 11th June 2019 proved to be the best reward for the people of his constituents as he has chosen to change the narrative, launching his nets to harvest uncountable fishes for his constituents and exceeding expectations, not just through his sound legislative contributions to the development of his constituency but also Nigeria as a whole.
