Publish data on the governance of Ayedire/Iwo/Olaoluwa Federal Constituency when requested. 

We are not sure if anybody has requested for such, however, the lawmaker has been publishing information and details about his activities in the Green Chamber.

Bring for discussion among “AYIWOLA” communities any bill that directly affects the communities.

Yes, the lawmaker has been doing, one of the major discussions was the establishment of the Federal College of Education in Iwo. Though it has been an online discussion.

Holding of regular town hall meetings with people of his constituency where they will determine what the relevant and immediate issues are.

So far, no town hall meetings have been held with the constituents though he has been keeping them informed. However, we hope a Town Hall Meeting will hold in 2020.

Open information channels on real-time social network forums such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.

Yes, he has been keeping the people of his constituency updated on social media especially his Facebook account. We hope other social platforms will be used to engage his people.

CONCLUSION

Hon Amobi Yinusa has dotted some ‘t’ and dotted some ‘i’, without a doubt 2019 has been an eventful year with what we could describe as a better representation of Iwo Federal constituency at the National Assembly. We pray and hope Hon Amobi keeps the pace to fulfill all his campaign promises.
