Moshood Oshun, a member of the Lagos state house of assembly, has advised Nigerians to stop treating elected office holders as demi-gods.

Addressing residents of Lagos Mainland constituency 2 during a townhall meeting this weekend, Oshun said politicians are servants.

The lawmaker told the electorate to learn to ask questions from those they voted into power.

He also commended the residents and the police for the relative peace enjoyed in the area.

He said as a lawmaker, he had vowed to remain honest with the people, adding that he has two constituency offices which he visits to attend to correspondences and requests.

“Are those elected truly representing us. Do we see them always?” Oshun asked.

“These are the questions we should always ask ourselves.

“I am happy that after the second town hall meeting when you all agreed to the creation of the Neighbourhood Watch, we now have at least 5,000 people in the scheme.

“Our democracy still needs rejigging. There are items in the exclusive list that needs to be removed. One of this is state policing. This would make officers know every routes and corners of their jurisdictions.”
