His regional banking experience includes the retail, commercial, corporate and public sector.

Over the course of his extensive banking career, he became adept with government accounts and accounting. He developed strategic relationships with state and local governments, providing finance for development projects and offering revenue collection services. He is also well versed with the transition from IPSAS (International Public Sector Accounting Standards) cash-based accounting to IPSAS accrual-based accounting, the deployment of IPPIS (Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System), and other governmental initiatives to improve efficiency and reduce the cost of governance.

He worked in the banking industry up until August 2011, rising up the ranks to Divisional Director and General Manager at Equatorial Trust Bank Limited (Now Sterling Bank PLC).

Having served in the corporate world in various capacities, coupled with my most recent exposure in the public service, it is my desire and aspiration to serve my people by participating in politics and governance.
After due consultations with strategic and all stakeholders in our senatorial district, I have decided to seek for elective position and to contest as SENATOR representing Ogun central in the senate (upper chambers of the National Assembly)
It is my desire to offer fresh perspectives and pragmatic representation that would bring unprecedented socio- economic development to our senatorial district and our dear state as a whole.
I therefore, humbly seek for your prayers and support in the pursuit of my aspiration and our collective good.
God bless Ogun central senatorial district 
God bless Ogun state
God bless Nigeria

Yours very sincerely, 
Adebola Emmanuel Sofala
Senatorial Aspirant Ogun Central
