Meet Engr. Nurudeen Adeyemi Balogun

Who is Engr. Nurudeen Adeyemi Balogun?

I am running for elective office in the great state of Harmony Kwara State because I believe in good governance and in making government work for all the people.  Now is the time to stand up and fight for the prosperity, development, and progress of our people.

I am a concerned husband, parent, and citizen that worries about the future of our country and slow pace of development in Kwara State.

Today I work for a company that designs, manufactures and launches advanced rockets and spacecraft that is looking to revolutionize space technology.  I have many years of experience working in the automotive industry developing cutting edge technologies.  I am looking forward to making Kwara State a great technology hub in the future.

Along with many concerned citizens of Kwara State, we have identified and tried to help fix problems in the areas of education, healthcare, and clean water.  Many of our community schools suffer from lack of teachers and dilapidated buildings, these negatively impact our students’ ability to learn and be successful.  Over the last few years we have hired and paid the salaries of teachers in the areas of Science, technology, English, and Mathematics.

The Igbomina Mobile Clinic is on the ground doing a great job of providing first line of care to many people in Kwara South Senatorial District by focusing on silent killer diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.  For many people, the mobile clinic is a life saver as many in the rural areas lack adequate access to healthcare facility.

We supported the efforts of Goal-Getters initiative that focus on bringing clean water to many communities through the repairs of hand pumps in many communities across Kwara South.

I am looking forward to bringing my many years of worldly experience to bring about positive changes to the lives of the great people of Kwara State.
