Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo clarified that his reason for venturing into partisan politics despite his enormous successes in profession and businesses had been largely informed by the desire to turn things around for his people. He opined that politics should only be for those who have been positively accomplished in life and those with the mindset to affect lives of the people meaningfully. Although BTO is convinced that service and passionate desire to positively af fect lives are also party of the motivating fac tors for joining politics.
When he emerged to represent the people at the Green Chamber, the security of the people was among some of his very important promises and it’s one which he has given himself wholly to achieving.
For a region which was plagued with various cases of insecurity, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo took it upon himself to facilitate the emergence of a structure which will effectively complement the efforts of the State Government in proving adequate security to his people and environs.
