A sociocultural group, Abobaniyi Friends Circle of Nigeria has congratulated the governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, the Ogun State governor-elect, Senator Ibikunle Amosun and other elected Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) candidates, saying their victory was well deserved.
The group, in a statement jointly signed by its president and vice president, Chief Dauda Adeyemi Adewoye, the Jagunmolu of Ajangbadi and Chief Yisa Sanni, the Oosa of Ijanikin respectively, expressed happiness over the success of ACN in the just concluded elections, believing that Ogun State is going to take a new shape and that the governor-elect will deliver the expected dividends of democracy just as Fashola in Lagos.
â€œWe congratulate Fashola and Amosun on their victory and ACN national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on his exemplary leadership role he played towards the success of the party at the polls in the south west,â€ stated the group, while its secretary, Prince Awobi Ladega said he believed in the emancipation of the people from the shackles of poverty and other forms of deprivation.
â€œWe are ready to complement the efforts of the incoming administrations for a better society,â€ he stated.
