A firm believer in social welfare, equity and justice, GRV just concluded his second Masters in Research and Public Policy, from the political science department of UNILAG.

He is a practicing architect, social activist and avid writer; known for his stand against GMO’s in Nigeria and his campaign to bring back “history” as a subject to Nigerian schools.

He is the youth of our dream, especially when the call for youth participation in politics is concerned as he desires to represent the biggest Senatorial district in Lagos, Lagos West in the Senate.

A tall order this might be or sound, as he is competing with incumbent that is very popular, but in politics, anything can happen.

We would bring you his agenda for the District as times go, hopefully looking forward to having him speak in details to us.
