In response to Dr Osonuga’s appointment as Senator, Baybars Altuntas said; “Dr Osonuga who currently leads over 20,000 real estate consultants in Nigeria has made significant contributions to driving financial inclusion across the country and has helped secure market-based funding for several real estate developers and firms and we believe beyond all reasonable doubt that he would function perfectly in this position.”

In his interview with pressmen, he stated “I appreciate The World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF) for this opportunity, now local Nigerian angel investors, incubation centres, accelerators, private equity funds, co-investment funds, technology parks, corporate ventures, and aspiring entrepreneurs will have more opportunity to connect with global leaders in the same field.
“I am more than happy to collaborate with the High Commissioner for Nigeria, Hauwa Yabani, and fellow senators to drive financial inclusion in Nigeria and across the world.”
