…offers quality representation
A leading aspirant for Amuwo-Odofin Federal House of Representatives seat, Prince Lanre Sanusi (PLS) has highlighted why a change of baton at the National Assembly is important, come 2023 in the constituency.
Prince Lanre Sanusi made assertion while addressing APC Chieftains at a courtesy call to notify the party’s Apex leader Oriade/Amuwo-Odofin Prince Omonoba Saliu Sekoni and other stakeholders about his intention to vie for the Reps seat.
He noted that Amuwo-Odofin federal constituency has suffered neglect with respect to Infrastructural developments and more dividend of democracy unlike what obtains in Ikeja and Ikorodu,which boils down to void of quality representation.
Commending a former Reps of Amuwo Odofin Hon. Olukolu, the young and vibrant PLS note that he is bringing a new wave into national legislature, as he will positively leverage on the past experiences.
Prince Sanusi said that: “The past is gone, we are focused and resolute not like any other who dilly dally on what they wanted,Hon.Jimi Benson of Ikorodu, Hon. James Faleke Ikeja and the Speaker of the Federal House of Reps Rt.Hon.Femi Gbajabiamila of Surulere are my models, ever since the era of Hon. Olukolu who is here seated, Amuwo Odofin lacked
“We have not been visible at the national, so my going to represent you is to ensure facilitation of quality Infrastructure, employments opportunities and more here.
“As someone who put his trust in God, whoever says he knows them all in Abuja, I tell them we know God.
“Oghene has no constituency office and he has been holding forte at the NASS since.They said PDP is more than us in Amuwo, I say they have been stealing our votes.
Appreciating the leaders for their unalloyed commitment to the actualisation of his aspiration, he urge them to give him his support again.
“I appreciate you for being consistent with me.
We have an opponent in Oghene or any other we will defeat them. I want the same backings you gave me in 2019 with which we won the primaries again, may the good Lord repose the soul of late Hon.Adegeye.
“Allow me to be your Reps member in Abuja, you have done it before and I want it again and I will not fail you. I also crave your permission to tour round the LGA and Wards. I urge you to support me again.” PLS said.
In his response the Apex leader Prince Sekoni appraised the recent discourse with the APC National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, where a note of warning was sounded against violence during party’s primaries and the general elections.
He task all aspirants to comport themselves well before and after the election so as not to soil his image which is inimical to his aspiration.
“We won’t just pick after primaries to screen aspirants,soon that will be, what we are doing now is to prepare towards primaries, all the wards and delegates to be are present here.
“I urge you all we are out for indirect primaries which involves delegates and people at the ward.
“At a parley with the National Leader yesterday, he told us that all should go and contest on the field whoever emerges without rancour should progress to INEC.
“So if primary churn someone out nobody should contest. No violence in Lagos where he is coming out for presidency. Any aspirants found wanting can be denied or disqualified.
“So all of us who have preferred aspirants,we have never force anybody to do the bidding of one person. It is going to be an electoral college and the national will determine who will be there.
“Here we have eleven INEC wards 7 for the indigenous Oriade and the four others in Amuwo-Odofin, with an expressly stated number of delegates to go, for the Assembly,Reps,Senate and Presidential primaries whoever has no business there should not go, just pray for your aspirant.
More so the final result is sacrosanct, so the support for aspirants is to vote for them once you are a delegate.” Sekoni said.
Also one of the leaders present, Pa Ajakaiye (aka Yaafi) affirmed that none has the following of PLS in the area, adding that his mien is unprecedented in terms of provision.
“Amidst all the four that have come to show their interest none has ever given us caps. I want you to know he has the required weight, he has also done much more than others.
“This is APC primaries era, campaign is still coming when PLS candidature is affirmed. If we have this crowd prior to primaries, I want to believe he will sustain the tempo.”
The Director General of PLS Campaign organisation, Alhaji Moshood Balogun Badmus appraised the political trajectory of the aspirant noting that all through his travails he did not challenge the party decision and now seeks support for 2023 Reps aspiration.
