25 Jan POLITICIANS SHOULD NOT TAKE ELECTORATE FOR GRANTED- SEN. ADEOLA
Senator Solomon Adeola (APC, Lagos West) has called on fellow politicians across board not to take the electorate for granted by shunning direct contact with them particularly at this electioneering period.
Senator Adeola who was responding to media interest on his vigorous campaign in face of lukewarm attitude of most politicians during his campaign tour of Ojo LGA said that any politician seeking the votes of the people should be able to physically present his person and his programs for the people directly.
“I will not and have never taken my constituents for granted in all my public life as a representatives of my people. At every electoral campaign I ensures I go round my constituency and while in government I report back directly to the people through town hall meetings and private personal contact to as many constituents as possible” he stated.
The senator who took a tour round major streets of Ojo LGA distributing campaign materials of all kinds later met with stakeholders comprising Community Development Association, CAN Market Women Associations, Artisan Group, Youth Bodies, League of Imams and all Ethnic Groups to urged the people to vote for APC candidates in the coming election.
Senator Adeola appealed to the Igbo communities resident in Lagos State to vote for APC as the government of the state has treated everyone fairly stressing that it is their party that appointed an Igboman, Mr. Ben Akabueze as commissioner and later ‘promoted’ him to the Director of Budget Office at the Federal Level.
“We seek your votes for President Mohammad Buhari, Mr. Babajide Sanwo Olu as Governor as well as other candidates of APC. The APC government of three and half years cannot be compared to PDP 16 year rule” he stated.
Senator Adeola said the APC administration of Buhari has delivered on major infrastructural projects abandoned by PDP adding that the people should ask what PDP administration did with the huge funds that accrued to the nation in their 16 years rule before consider ever voting for them again.
Three APC candidates namely Hon. Yinka Durosimi, Ojo Federal Constituency, Hon. Victor Akande, Ojo State Constituency 1, Hon.Surajudeen Tijani, Ojo State Constituency 2 were part of the campaign tour.
