DATE – 29TH of SEPTEMBER, 2018
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press, Political Leaders,
Distinguished Supporters, Well-wishers and
Good morning to you all.
Today marks a new and significant turn in the tussle for a better Lagos East Senatorial District. A few months ago, with the support of all of you seated here today, the journey for an improved senatorial representation began and I must say that the support I have enjoyed has given my ambition the momentum that has brought us to this day.
Our mandate, above all else, was anchored on the need to ensure that the Lagos East Senatorial District got the voice it desperately needed to push for better conditions of living, and every decision up till this point has been geared towards the realisation of that mandate. Today, I am here to tell you that we have made our mark and posterity will thank us all for our efforts. We shall not be discouraged!
Prior to the release of the nomination forms by our esteemed ruling party;APC, we had budgeted the total sum of 3.5 million naira and immediately the form fees were released, many feared that the mandate had been cut short due to the steep prices of the forms. I am here to tell you today, that is not the case. We are forging ahead!
Among our numerous efforts, the need to work with as many people as possible, to ensure the realisation of the tenets of the mandate, was the focal point in all that we did and that has led us to form alliances with like minds. And today, I am here to announce one of such alliances.
And in forging ahead, we must realise that the advantages of building up together greatly outweighs the tendency to pull down and tear us apart. To achieve this synergy, we set out to work with as many teams as possible and among all, one team *stands out* as one with a similar desire (ideology) to improve our beloved district. This team has shown that we can work together to achieve greatness and if the interest of our district must come first, there is no other way than to work together.
Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, I, Ajao Onaolapo Afeez Adetola, on this day, September 29, 2018, hereby declare my support for the distinguished Senator Gbenga Ashafa in his bid to return to the hallowed chambers of the Nigerian Senate, not just to continue his good works but to ensure improved representation for Lagos East and Nigeria as a nation.
I enjoin all well-wishers, supporters and loyalists to join me in endorsing his mandate that has grown to become our mandate so that he emerges victorious in the party primaries come Tuesday, October 2, 2018 and beyond.
I thank you all for your time and efforts on our journey so far, even as I look forward to your continued support in this crucial decision.
God bless APC,
God bless Lagos East,
God bless Our dear Nigeria,
God bless you all!
