It was a ground breaking and memorable event on Saturday January 19, 2019 as members of All Progressives Congress (APC), supporters, bigwigs and enthusiasts from across the Lagos East senatorial district of Lagos state gathered at the Ita-Elewa playground in Ikorodu for the official flag off of the re-election campaign of the Majority Leader of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Hon. Sanai Bolanle Agunbiade.
Speaking during the event, the Vice Chairman of the APC in the senatorial district, AsipaKaoliOlusanya, described Agunbiade as the best choice for the constituency and urged party members to work hard to ensure the victory of all APC candidates across the senatorial district. He said considering his performance since he was elected into the House, Agunbiade has proven that he understands the nitty-gritty of being a representative of the people.
The event has in attendance creme de la creme in ikorodu division, representatives of the Speaker of the Lagos Assembly, Rt. Hon. MudashiruObasa, the member representing Ikorodu federal constituency in the national assembly, Hon. Jimi Benson, over a dozen members of the assembly, apex party leaders, members of the BabajideSanwoolu Campaign Organisation (BOSCO), all six council chairmen in Ikorodu division, representatives of the council of Obas, community leaders, non indigene groups and numerous other dignitaries.
Addressing the mammoth crowd, Agunbiade thanked the good people of Ikorodu for giving him another opportunity to fly the APC flag. He promised not to relent in his efforts to ensure that the impact of government is better felt across the division. “You are asking me to go back and do more, and I am promising to do more when I am re-elected as your representative. Ikorodu has been very good to me. The only way I can repay you all is to work harder as your representative,” he said.
The lawmaker also urged the electorates to go all out on elections days to ensure that the APC win all the positions across the senatorial district. “This is not about voting for Agunbiade alone. Go out and vote for President Buhari, vote for BabajideSanwoolu, vote for BayoOsinowo, vote for Jimi Benson, vote for Solaja and of course, vote for me, S.O.B Agunbiade,” he urged.
