2023: Lawmaker Calls For United APC In Alimosho



Hon. Adebisi Yusuff, Lagos lawmaker representing Alimosho Constituency 1, has enjoined members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Alimosho constituency to work together in unity, ahead of the 2023 general election.

Yusuff made the call at the eight Annual Lagos State House of Assembly Constituency Stakeholders’ Meeting with the theme: “2023 General Elections: The Imperatives of Permanent Voters’ Cards in Lagos,” on Thursday.

He said members must be united to achieve great success for the party in the forthcoming 2023 general election.

The lawmaker said the party’s constituency faithful must promote unity in order to move the frontiers of the APC forward in the coming polls.

“We must be united as one in Alimosho to get to the next level, come 2023.

“Alimosho APC must remain one and should not be divided into factions because when we are dedicated to common peace, we can achieve greater heights.

“Don’t create bad impression about one another, be democratic, loyal and supportive to move our party forward, “he said.

Yusuff said that any conflict within the party in the constituency would be resolved.

However, Hon. Jelili Sulaimon, Chairman, Alimosho Local Government Area, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview that the APC members in Alimosho constituencies would continue to work in unity.

“There may be mild political rancour in the constituencies but it is normal.

“It is like a fight between the tongue and the teeth, but cannot divide them despite the differences.

“I am bold to say by the virtue of my position that in Alimosho constituency, we are intact and we are one big family,” Sulaimon said.

Earlier, the stakeholders at the meeting commended Yusuff for representing them well for almost 20 years in different capacities and for various infrastructural development in the constituency.

They also called for the urgent intervention of the state government through his office in addressing some pending needs and challenges of the area.

Mr Emmanuel Ezekwe, representating Igbo community stakeholders, commended the lawmaker for his contribution to the construction of the Baruwa, Two-Storey , New London road and ongoing construction of the Baruwa/Idowu Egba link bridge.

Mrs Ajoke Obe, the Vice Chairman, Oke Agbado-Odo, urged Yusuff to appeal to the Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI) officials in Lagos to stop harassing ram sellers.

One said that KAI officials should set guidelines for their operations rather than harassing them.

She also informed the lawmaker of a collapsed bridge at Aina Ajayi Estate off Ekoro road and the danger it had posed to residents, hence, the need for urgent repair by the state government.

Mrs Elizabeth Kola-Ogunlade, Iyaloja General of Mosan-Okunola Local Council Development Area (LCDA), called for repair of inner roads within Mosan-Okunola LCDA and the creation of PVC registration centres in the markets.

Kola-Ogunlade said that positioning the PVC centres in the market would encourage traders to register. (NAN)

Funke Akindele Speaks On Electoral Defeat



The Lagos deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the just concluded polls, Funke Akindele, has finally opened on the defeat suffered at the polls.

In a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon, Akindele who was the running mate of Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (Jandor) in the Lagos governorship race noted that she has no regrets about running for office.

The Nollywood actress, however, admitted that she has “learned and unlearned.”

In her statement, she never acknowledged Jandor or the Lagos PDP but thanked the people of Lagos State for supporting her.

Full statement by Funke Akindele 

It has been an amazing and insightful experience on my journey to the ballot and I must say, it was an absolute learning curve for me. A lot of things have been learned and unlearned. I sincerely do not regret taking this huge step of running for office.

I, therefore, want to thank the people of Lagos state for believing in me and supporting my decision to run for office. I saw every message of support online and offline, I heard of all the places where people supported me and challenged those who tried to discredit me

I remember every warm welcome during our campaign tour and the faith you all showed in me. The elections might not have panned out in the way we hoped, but it was an honourable run for us. We fought a good fight indeed as a matter of fact.

I also want to encourage all who mean well for the Nation and the state of Lagos not to give up. I understand that some of us are beginning to develop some sort of apathy towards the system, however, if we do not speak, we would never be heard.

I’m glad that we could at least speak up.

Thank you once again Lagos, for showing your daughter support. As I consider my next moves in life, I will continue prioritizing the good of the people and the integrity of my position as an advocate for the people.

Eko oni baje!

Vote Candidates With Experience, Hamzat Tells Lagosians



Femi Hamzat

The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, says residents should not allow inexperienced persons to manage the affairs of the state by voting for the right candidates.

Hamzat stated this at an interactive session with the University of Lagos Alumni Association,  Lagos state chapter, and Alumni of other institutions of higher learning in the state held at Igbobi college in Yaba.

The deputy governor noted that the re-election of candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) into power in the March 18 gubernatorial election, would ensure a better state and country.

He said successive governments of the APC in Lagos state since 1999, had done a lot to improve the standard of living of residents.

According to him, the government has improved on healthcare delivery, security,  and ensured that the streets are free of dirt, as well as improved on road networks among others.

The deputy governor, therefore, urged the people to give their votes and also ensure the return of Mr Babajide Sanwo-olu as the governor of Lagos state.

“A vote for Sanwo-Olu in Saturday’s gubernatorial election is a vote for a greater Lagos.

“Sanwo-olu’s administration has in the last four years,  done exceptionally well in all sectors of the economy and another tenure of four years will help the administration develop Lagos further.

“I assure you of greater development if reelected,” he said.

Hamzat also advised residents to be law-abiding as they performed their civic responsibility at the polls.

EXPOSED: Labour Party, PDP In Secret Meeting In Ifako-Ijaiye



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ifako-Ijaiye may find it difficult to maintain its hold on the Local Government as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) have begun to meet on plans to defeat the ruling party in the Local Government.

Buoyed by the success of the Labour Party in the last presidential election in Lagos State, the party is now more than confident that it will unseat Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and other APC candidates for the House of Assembly elections on March 11.

IfakoIjaiyeNews can authoritatively report that some high ranking members of both parties (PDP and LP) in Ifako-Ijaiye met over the possibility of an alliance.

At the meeting, which outcome was leaked to IfakoIjaiyeNews, the Labour Party candidate for Ifako-Ijaiye Constituency 01, Comrade Oluwakayode Oladunni, said the momentum is on the side of his party and urged his PDP counterpart, Hon Oloyede Mutairu Abiodun to mobilise his structure for him.

One of the arguments against the PDP candidate is also that he is unknown to most residents and he didn’t bother to campaign or even join the campaign trail on Hon Fateema Mohammed, the PDP Reps candidate.

A PDP chieftain at the meeting who spoke anonymously with IfakoIjaiyeNews, said that Hon Abiodun, truly has not put any resources into campaigning and he knows he is not one of the major contenders.

“The meeting was not a bad one. It is the start of many more of such meetings. We need to form an alliance to unseat the APC in Ifako-Ijaiye. This is our best opportunity and with the momentum on the side of Labour Party and our candidate not also a serious one, we see the alliance working.

“Let me be sincere, Hon Abiodun has been contemplating the offer from Comrade Oladunni and the offer is tempting. At this point, we have nothing to lose. However, we are also speaking to the APC camp to see what could be done. We want to remain relevant after this election,” the source said.

Meanwhile, the APC candidate for the Ifako-Ijaiye constituency 01, Hon Adewale Temitope Adedeji, has stepped up efforts by meeting with stakeholders from the South Eastern part of the country living in Ifako-Ijaiye.
