2023: Lagos PDP guber candidate meets clergy, Oba, seeks blessings



Dr Abdul-Azeez Adeniran, PDP candidate for the Lagos State Governorship seat, on Monday met with some clergy men and traditional rulers in Ojo Local Government in continuation of his campaigns.

Recall that Adediran and his running mate, Ms Funke Akindele, flagged off their campaigns on Oct. 19 and have been touring various wards and meeting with stakeholders.

Already, the campaign train has visited all wards in Alimosho and Badagry Local Governments.

Adediran, in an interactive session with the clergy in Igbede/Iyana axis of Ojo, said that the state needed a breath of fresh air that would guarantee the dreams and aspirations of the residents.

According to him, the Badagry Division, where Ojo is also located, has suffered long neglect, hence the need for all to support his aspirations being an indigene of the area.

He said that his passion was to change the narrative of the division for the better.

While promising free and compulsory education, security and massive infrastructural development, Adediran said that he would ensure that the wealth of the state worked for the residents, especially the masses, if elected.

The candidate, who also visited the Palace of the Oduowo-Iya Adaraloye, Eleye of Ete Kingdom, Oba Dauda Nofiu, said that he did not come for politics but to receive royal blessings

Adediran also paid homage to the Elekunpa of Ekunpa Kingdom, Oba Kazeem Kosoko, where he promised never to let down the people of the state.

He told the Oba that he would run a government of the masses that everyone would be proud of.

On her part, Akindele, who took her campaign to Sibiri, Ajangbado and Vesper markets, told the traders that Adediran-led government would ensure better life and robust economy.

She said that their administration would give women opportunity and involve everyone in governance.

Akindele said that a PDP administration would implement 35 per cent affirmative action for women in Lagos.

It was reported that thugs attacked the campaign train on Sunday at Mowo area of Badagry, damaging several vehicles and injuring party supporters.

Also injured were journalists covering the campaigns.
