Why constituents should re-elect me — Obanikoro



Rep. Babajide Obanikoro of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Eti-Osa Federal Constituency has urged his constituents to re-elect him in the coming election based on his experience and performance.

Obanikoro stated this at the flag off of his campaign on Tuesday, in Lagos.

“I think Eti-Osa Constituents should elect me for a second time for continuity, and the experience that I am bringing to bear.

“I have got the opportunity to represent them in the last three years and six months today, and that, what I have done speaks for itself.

“I have presented three bills on the floor of the house and moved about eight motions that have to do with Eti-Osa and Nigeria as a people.

“Some of the projects that I have facilitated in Eti-Osa are unprecedented: I have facilitated about eight roads; four schools, and 2 clinics; we have done over 300 solar street lights across Eti-Osa, “ he said.

Obanikoro urged the Constituents to shun violence in the coming general elections.

He said: “Campaign and elections will come and go; as a people we will remain, our infrastructure will remain; so, we have to be peaceful.

“Let us follow issue based campaign; look at the candidates and what we all bring to bear: our offering, preaching and campaigning.

“I assure you that we have brought the best candidates from the presidency all the way to the assembly members, especially in Eti-Osa; we are all bringing experience to bear and continuity.”

He said that his performance in Eti-Osa constituency and that of the Lagos state Government should guarantee his re-election and that of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The candidate said that the performance should also guarantee the election of APC presidential candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu.

Also speaking, former senator and Minister of State for Defence, Mr Musiliu Obanikoro, the candidate’s father, described his son as a performer.

He said: “By returning him to the House of Representatives, you will have more benefits; by returning him, you have increased his stature and when your stature is elevated, you have more power.

“His performance in the next four years will be extraordinary.”

Present at the rally were the state Deputy Governor, Dr Obafemi Hamzat; elder statesman and top member of the Lagos State Governance Advisory Council, Chief Tajudeen Olusi, among other dignitaries.
