A member of the Lagos State House of AssemblyÂ representing Lagos MainlandÂ Constituency 1 on the platform of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Mr. AdekunleÂ Ademoye, has said that he is fully in the race to represent Lagos Mainland in theÂ Federal House of Representatives in 2011.
Ademoye, who is the chairman of Housing Committee, spoke on the problems thatÂ residents face on housing and in the hands of fake and unprofessional agents in theÂ state, saying that a bill on that will soon pass through the third reading and willÂ be concluded soon.
Speaking on his mission for the generality of the people of Lagos Mainland, Ademoye,Â a graduate of Computer Science at the Lagos State University (LASU), said he willÂ not relent in his efforts to boost education and health to which he has beenÂ committed since he was voted in in 2003.
He asserted that it was only a courageous man that will perform excellently underÂ any condition, no matter the prevailing negativities of the time or otherwise,Â adding, â€œmy courage will allow me to assert my political will to get things done forÂ the betterment of the entire people of Lagos Mainland.
According to him, â€œit takes only sheer courage coupled with tenacity of purpose,Â doggedness of will and ruggedness of patriotic spirit, to surmmount thoseÂ challenges.â€
He, however, urged the youth to be more focused and to shun all forms of politicalÂ and electoral violence. He also advised them not to sell themselves out cheap and beÂ used by mischievous and unscrupulous politicians in the state, while enjoiningÂ everyone to register en masse during the forthcoming voter registration exercise.
