ADC set to revamp the face of Lagos for good, says Oboh
The newly-appointed African Democratic Congress (ADC) national representative in Lagos campaign council, Mrs. Mabel Oboh, has affirmed the party’s commitment to revamp the face of Lagos State for good if elected into power come 2023.
In a statement yesterday, Oboh, who is currently the ADC national diversity and inclusion director, said she was delighted to be appointed as the ADC national leader to oversee Funsho Doherty’s gubernatorial campaign.
She said: “We have no time to waste. All hands are on deck and ADC is prepared to unseat the ruling party this time around. The time has come for a third force party to take over Lagos and that party is ADC and we are set to revamp the state for good.
“ADC will bring ‘new ideas’ into the administration of the state and stand firmly on vision to grow Lagos State at an exponential rate.
“Funsho Doherty is the most competent person to govern the state among the candidates jostling for the Lagos top seat. He would invest in intangible assets, such as in industry (among his other cardinal points) to get the Lagos economy back on track and attract foreign investors once again.
“Doherty is a competent entrepreneur and a chartered accountant who is fresh, sound, down to earth and full of integrity. He is the man of the people,’ who understands the present unacceptable squalors engulfing residents of Lagos state and armed with the technical know-how on how to revamp the state for the betterment of all.”
Oboh further added that as ADC director, part of the party’s campaign strategy is to make sure inclusiveness is brought forward in all the campaigns.
“Lagos is a key state with residents of different tribes, beliefs and cultural heritage, as well as women, youths and disadvantaged persons who are usually ignored during election period. Our aim is to make them involved in the affairs of Lagos as a state.
“Lagos is the economic heart of Nigeria, with contributions from all walks of life and tribes hence, ADC’S Lagos governorship campaign is going to make sure we move away from the usual tribalistic way of governance. ADC sets to change the face of Lagos for good,” she further said.
