Jandor canvasses council autonomy, plans to abolish reign of Iyaloja, Babaloja in Lagos
Lagos monarch seeks support for Tinubu, Sanwo-Olu
The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran (Jandor), yesterday, said that there would be local council autonomy in his administration if he assumes office in 2023.
Jandor, who stated this at the kick-off of his campaign in Alimosho Local Council of Lagos State, said that his administration would abolish the reign of Iyaloja and Babaloja in the state.
He lamented a situation whereby the state government could close markets and ban okada riders in the state without providing an alternative source of livelihood for the people.
Jandor said that Alimosho people had been “neglected” by the successive governments of All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said it was for this reason he had determined to change the narrative of development in the state.
The PDP candidate, who noted that he was not deterred by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike’s endorsement of Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said Wike is not a voter in Lagos.
IN another development, Oniba of Iba Kingdom in Alimosho Local Council of Lagos State, Oba Suleiman Adesina Ashade, has urged support for the presidential candidate of the ruling APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in 2023.
Oba Ashade urged members of the newly-constituted caretaker committee for Lagos State Parks Administration and its affiliates to work assiduously for the duo’s victories in the coming elections.
He stated this, yesterday, at a stakeholders’ meeting held in Akesan, Alimosho Local Council of Lagos State.
On his part, the Deputy State Chairman of the body, Oluseyi Bamgbose, described Tinubu as a detribalised Nigerian, whose leadership has produced leaders of international repute across the country irrespective of their ethnic or religious backgrounds.
According to him, Tinubu is not only willing, but ready to proffer lasting solutions to mirage of problems confronting the nation.
