It maintained that among the candidates, Sarumi has a comprehensive youth-focused agenda that could liberate the younger generations.
The group added that Sarumi’s track record “is unprecedented and unmatched among the candidates vying for Ibadan North federal constituency”.
“Born into the Akintayo Basiri-Sarumi Family of Abebi in Ibadan Oyo state, Sarumi is a Software Technology Delivery Consultant.
“He has consulted for various sector organisations such as Insurance, Health sector, Government, Non-for-profit organisations and more, supporting software implementation at multiple capacities,” the statement reads in part.
The group added that his achievements outside office have been a reference point, not only in Ibadan North but in the State capital as a whole.
“He is building an ultra-modern toilet infrastructure in the Polytechnic Ibadan and pioneered light up projects in the inner parts of the city, an initiative his opponent, Akinremi of APC, hurriedly replicated”, the group said.
