Politicians tell lies, but I don’t, says Oduntan
Deputy Chief Whip, Lagos State House of Assembly, Omotayo Oduntan, has reiterated her commitment to positively impacting the society and helping the needy.
The house of assembly member representing Alimosho Constituency II said this at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Ishagatedo, Isolo, Lagos when the Apostles of peace Society conferred her with the Apostle of Peace award.
Speaking to journalists, she said, “I don’t just accept awards anyhow but I always appreciate the ones that come from the house of God. It’s always in me to put a smile on people’s faces, because each and every one of us has a role to play in bettering our society.”
On how she wants to be remembered, she said “I always tell my children that when I die, I want to be remembered as someone that impacted people’s lives and not how many houses built or number of cars owned. Whatever you acquire at the end of the day will not speak for you. Women in government are like mirrors to other women; any woman who is interested in politics should come forward and we will mentor them. They must start from somewhere but the question they must ask themselves is ‘Can I do it? Am I ready? And if they can be honest enough they should come out and stop looking at the things attached to politics but what they will do for the people if they get there.”
