Answering the Call

Some few months ago, I wrote about the need and importance of taking difficult decisions.

In the lives of each one of us, there will always come a time that will require us to make a decision that is hard, difficult and uncomfortable.

But then, the ability to make these decisions at the time they should be made that translates to growth.

I have had reasons to make such difficult and uncomfortable decisions recently.

I accepted the nomination to run for political office in my country’s 2023 forthcoming general elections under the platform of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).

Verily, the only constant thing in life is change.

The only constant thing in life is change.Not happiness, joy nor misery. Not wealth, nor poverty. Not insecurity, crisis, chaos or wars. They all change with the passage of time.

The only thing that does not change, is life, and death. Hence we must we must learn to live, build a life and thrive before we get to the end of the road.

I answered the call, and on the 27th May 2022, I got screened to contest for a seat in the Nigerian House of Representatives to represent Chikun/Kajuru federal Constituency under the ADC.

I answered this call, because I am a Nigerian, a mother, a proud daughter of the soil and an
enthusiastic advocate for women and children.

I answered this call because I feel the time has come for a new narrative in our polity. A new narrative that will revive the hopes we lost, inspire confidence and courage to to , build, rebuild and build again for all of us as Nigerians, especially the people of Kajuru/Chikun federal constituency of Kaduna state.

The last two decades has been hard, catastrophic and debilitating for us as a people, hence the the journey ahead deserves another kind of leadership: a transformational leadership
that inspires hope and aligns with the aspirations and yearnings of the
people.

As a woman, and an someone with no money to throw around, I have been told that this journey is an impossible one. But I know the word IMPOSSIBLE can be written and read in different ways. Therefore, I chose to read and write it as I’M POSSIBLE.

My people have suffered enough, I believe I do not need money to stop the pain and suffering. What I need, is their support in proving that anybody can be anything they want to be if
they dared to dream. I believe in dreams because our dreams are valid.

And yours my lovely friends. This simple step, marks the beginning of this journey of thousands of miles. It is my hope that, you- my friends will walk this journey with me.
