Name: Obi Ekoba

Age: 20 

Preferred pronouns: Did not answer 

Party: Fine Gael 

Local Electoral Area: Ballyfermot-Drimnagh 

Is this your first time running? Yes, I'm a first time candidate

What are your reasons for running as a young person in politics? 

I decided to run as a young person because I felt my area needed change and I wanted to be that change. The problems of the area, such as litter, antisocial behaviour and lack of facilities have basically been an issue for decades and I don't believe they will be solved anytime soon if the same old same old type of candidate keeps on getting elected. I aim to bring enthusiasm and a change of perspective to the office.
