The lawmaker representing Lagos Island Constituency 1 in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Abdul Wahab Olawale Alawiye-King, has started to mobilise the people of his constituency ahead the forthcoming registration of voters as well as sensitising them on the 2011 poll.
With the mobilisation, he said the people have come to the realisation that they cannot just fold their arms and wish for good things, they also need to work for it.
According to him, â€œnobody will just come to this constituency and hoodwink the people. We have discerning people who will stand up for their rights; people who are informed and sensitised about the need to ensure that they register because that is the weapon with which they can determine who will lead them,â€ while urging his people to eschew violence and other vices, especially that the general election is around the corner.
