Statement to voters

Born into a family legacy of milkmen, my journey began in the humble setting of a local primary school.

Full statement

Progressing through secondary education, I pursued higher learning with vigour, culminating in the attainment of an LLB honours degree, followed by a master's degree.

Embarking on my professional journey, I dedicated two years to apprenticing at a prestigious law firm, honing my skills as a qualified solicitor. Subsequently, I undertook a pivotal role at Maurice Andrews Solicitors in 2014, initially offering my services pro bono as the firm approached its closure.

Through staunch dedication and demonstrable value, I earned the recognition of Mr. Andrews himself, who began compensating me on a commission basis for the clientele I brought in. This pivotal moment marked the trajectory towards my eventual ascension to Director of Maurice Andrews Solicitors in 2016.

Beyond the confines of legal practice, I have made significant strides in digital outreach, leveraging platforms like TikTok and Instagram to share educational content and cultivate a substantial online following. since 2021, I have accumulated followers in surplus of 350,000 accross various social media platforms and gain millions of view accross videos.

Personally, my greatest joys stem from my family life. Blessed with four beautiful children and a steadfastly supportive wife, our household is anchored by love and encouragement. As our children pursue their education in comprehensive schools, I am reminded of the importance of fostering a nurturing environment for their growth.

Rooted in a rich cultural background and driven by a deep-seated desire for success, my journey epitomises an unwavering commitment to self-sufficiency and entrepreneurial spirit, a legacy inherited from my father and embraced with fervour from an early age.
