As Adediran urges APC members to vote for change
The Lead Visioner, Lagos4Lagos Movement, Dr. Olajide Adediran aka (Jandor), has called on members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Badagry Division Lagos State, to brace up and vote to change the existing executive caretaker committee in the coming state congresses scheduled to hold on October 2 2021.

Adediran made the statement over the week when he received endorsements from various traditional, religious and political leaders across Badagrry, Alimosho, Ikorodu, Agege, and Ibeju Lekki divisions during the ongoing campaign for the coming state congresses.

Although the Tunde Balogun-led caretaker committee had said through the Publicity Secretary, Mr Seye Oladejo that it will adopt the consensus arrangement for the state congress, Lagos4Lagos is however getting support of many faithful of the party, which indicated the be possibility of another parallel congress in Lagos for the state congress.

Adediran, while reacting to the massive endorsement and support from notable elders and politicians in recent rallies, harped on the need for Lagos APC members to change the existing executive structure “if party and the state must witness necessary development in the area of infrastructure,” he said.

The convener of Lagos4Lagos said it was not enough for members of Lagos APC to continue to grumble and complain about candidate imposition, lack of internal democracy and a one man show in the party over the years “we need to stand up to the task and use our numbers and vote to change the existing status quo.

“Lagos4Lagos had proved a point in the last ward and local government congresses and the coming state congress will provide another opportunity for the people to take the party back.”

Although, the party faithful in Badagry, where Adediran come expressed displeasure over the way successive administration persistently neglected the division in terms of infrastructure and sharing of political offices under APC despite their massive support all the time, the leaders said their hope is in now in Lagos4Lagos, whom they believe would treat them fairly and equitably, if Jandor eventually emerges governor of Lagos State in 2023.

Adediran described the state of the Badagry-Ojo Road as deplorable, saying, Badagry deserves better because of its place in the historical development of Lagos. He added that the Division has suffered neglect despite its huge human and natural resources.
