Expressing some of his legislative achievements, the Lawmaker said, “I feel Honoured and humble to be here tonight, in fact if I say I should list what I have done, it will take a lot of time. Sincerely when I came in as a legislator I was able to construct a building in Ajah Olomu Primary and Secondary School in Ajah, I was able to construct ICT centre. I was able to contruct boreholes in some communities like Ilaje, Oniru, Eti-Osa among others so that the people can feel the benefits of democracy more.”

“And when it comes to representation, I have been able to represent my people very well. I am accessable and available to them at all times.”

“We also have the issue of ocean surge happening currently in Alpha beach within that coastal line area, and I moved a motion concerning it. I want to thank the Speaker of the House of Assembly for given me the privilege to move the motion and the governor has started work on how to find a lasting solution to ocean surge.” He stated.

“So I have been able to move so many other motions, about nine motions in the Lagos State House of Assembly. I cannot start listing them now because of time” he said.

Commenting on youths in politics, Adams said, “To me I believe that the youths of today are capable of handling public offices. If you come to Lagos State House of Assembly, at least I can count up to 10 youths and they are doing well; they are representing their constituencies very well, people like Hon. Adewale Temitope, one the youngest legislators, Hon. Ajani Owolabi, Hon. Kasumu Adedamola amongst others. All these people I mentioned are not up to 40 years and they are representing their constituencies very well”.
