The chairman of Coker/Aguda Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, southwestÂ Nigeria, Hon. Aliu Kazeem has said that only people of sound morals and educationalÂ background could effectively represent the people of the grassroots in theirÂ yearning for dividends of democracy.
Speaking exclusively with P.M.NEWS, Kazeem enjoined the electorate to vote wisely inÂ the forthcoming 2011 general elections by voting for the Action Congress of Nigeria,Â which is set to produce people who are trusted and ready to deliver the dividends ofÂ democracy, and rescue Nigerians from the impoverishedÂ situation they are presentlyÂ undergoing.
â€œThe best way one can serve the people is by bringing meaningful development to themÂ in terms ofÂ qualitative health care system, good system of transportation,Â empowerment programmes for both the young and the old and also ensuring availabilityÂ of the necessary amenities that will make life more meaningful for them, and that isÂ what we have been doing in Lagos State, under the sublime tutorship of the GovernorÂ Raji Fashola-led administration and with guidelines from our great party, the ACN,Â and that is also what we are bringing to the fore at the national level,â€ he stated.
The council boss also congratulated the Osun State governor, Mr. Rauf AregbesolaÂ over what he called a hard-earned and well-deserved victory at the Court of Appeal.Â He described the victory as an act of God and that the judgement is a clearÂ indication that the judiciary is the last hope of the common man. He added thatÂ Aregbesola’s victory is a clear indication that the ACN, as a party of progressivesÂ is set to take over, and no amount of rigging can deter the party.
