An Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, aspirant in Oshodi-Isolo Constituency 01, SouthwestÂ Nigeria, Mr. Felix Adewale Ajayi was recently the guest of members of his constituencyÂ during his Meet The People tour of the area to seek their votes into the Lagos StateÂ House of Assembly in the next general elections.
Going down memory lane, Ajayi revealed how, while still in far away United Kingdom, hisÂ people beckoned on him to come and join in the task of nation building and how he heededÂ the voice of his teeming admirers back home who believed that he had what it takes toÂ move their constituency to the next level.
He told the gathering that his attempts were frustrated several times but because heÂ believed that it was not yet time for him to be in the driving seat, he took theÂ disappointment with equanimity, more so some political forces in operation then made sureÂ that his efforts were thwarted.
â€œMy dear fellow compatriot, those set backs should galvanize us this time around toÂ compliment the efforts of Alhaji Farouk Oshodi so as to further enhance the livingÂ standard of our people,â€ Ajayi submitted.
He gave thumbs up to members of the Felix Adewale Ajayi Campaign Organisation Club, FAACOÂ and promised to deliver the true dividends of democracy when eventually elected into theÂ office in 2011, adding that the motivation to run is premised on a genuine interest toÂ serve and bring positive change to his constituency.
â€œI promise to pursue the party manifesto of transforming our country, create wealth,Â jobs, conduct proper consultation with my constituency and be accountable as well asÂ invest in education and provide scholarship for the younger generation and also provide aÂ befitting library and most importantly recreational facility,â€ Ajayi however explainedÂ that his party was not carried away by the time table released by the IndependentÂ National Electoral Commission, INEC, and urged the body to return to the drawing board toÂ examine it adding that ACN is fully prepared for the general elections.
