Oworu Olumide Abiodun, the actor, says he would be “accountable and accessible” if elected as a member of the Lagos state house of assembly. 


The movie star is popularly known for his role as ‘Tari’ in the Africa Magic series ‘The Johnsons’.

On February 23, the actor announced his interest to represent the Surulere constituency under the Labour Party.

His announcement came a few months after the deadline for the submission of nomination forms by politicians contesting for seats at the state houses of assembly — which was August 8, 2022.


But on Wednesday, the actor reiterated his commitment to the betterment of the constituency.  

He said he plans to change the narrative about governance.

The movie star added that he would improve access to health care and education in Surulere.  


“I am here to give us a voice in the Lagos state house of assembly. If elected into office, I vow to be accessible and accountable, as I work within the house of assembly to push forward thinking legislations that will aid the welfare of both young and old,” he said in a video on his Instagram handle.

“Some may equate my age with inexperience. However, I am energised for change.

“I have spent my whole life so far in Surulere. I understand the need for more business incentives. Better waste management programmes, opportunities for skill acquisitions, access to better health care, sound education, and more.”
