The campaign for the re-election of Speaker ofÂ the Lagos State House ofÂ Assembly, Hon. Adeyemi Ikuforiji has been flagged off at the Ikeja PlayingÂ Ground with his declaration that if elected, much effort would be madeÂ in the next dispensation to protect the interests of the people in the state.
Ikuforiji,Â Action CongressÂ ofÂ NigeriaÂ (ACN) candidate for the House of AssemblyÂ election, moves from Epe to contest for the Ikeja 1 Constituency seat.
Shortly after receiving the flag of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) fromÂ the patyâ€™s Chairman, Mr. Dele Ajomale, the Speaker told the crowd that a good foundation has been laid for theÂ state government to improve upon, adding that a lot of development has beenÂ carried out by the government under GovernorÂ Babatunde FasholaÂ (SAN) since theÂ inception of the administration.
He appealed to Lagosians not to vote for any party other thanÂ ACN, insisting that votes for the partyâ€™s candidates in all the elections wouldÂ translate to more progress and development for the people ofÂ Lagos State. HeÂ said other parties are pretenders and bunch of misfits who should be shunned by theÂ electorate.
Other candidates fromÂ LagosÂ West Senatorial Zone that were given the partyâ€™sÂ flag at the event included Senator Ganiyu Solomon, Mr. Abiodun Faleke (House ofÂ Representatives) and Hon. Lola Akande (House of Assembly Ikeja 11) .
Addressing the ACN supporters, the former Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed TinubuÂ said Lagosians should vote massively for the Governor, the speaker and other ACNÂ candidates in the April poll. He warned them not to be deceived byÂ Labour Party,Â disclosing that some ACN members that decamped to the party are saboteurs.
