As the postponed general elections come up this Saturday, the Lagos APC has come up with sensitization strategy to involve various communities in aggressive mobilization efforts with a view to craving massive votes for all the party’s candidates.

At a strategic meeting with scores of CDC and CDA members held at the Sanwoolu Vanguard campaign office in Ojokoro, the top party personality in Ojokoro LCDA, Hon. (Dr.) Adekunle Waleeh Ipaye conducted the inauguration on Street Captains during which he charged them to carry out their duties as laid down by the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.

In his words, “What the Jagaban has done with the initiative of creating Street Captains was borne out of the fact that the existing three tier of government has been modified to include the Communities, thereby making up a 4-tier of government. Asiwaju recognises the significance and value of the community in electioneering process and governance and as such came up with the concept of Street Captains”.

Explaining the concept behind the initiative, Dr. Ipaye, who’s a member of Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) delivered Asiwaju’s promise when he said the bargain would entail the “Street Captains” to mobilize virtually everyone in their various communities to vote in all APC candidates. This, he added will, in turn guarantee them to partake in various appointments of the incoming government as long as Ojokoro delivers nothing less than 200,000 votes at the polls.

He was however was optimistic that the Captains would live up to the responsibilities bestowed on them towards ensuring all the APC candidates, ranging from Muhammadu Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo, Sanwoolu/Hamzat, Solomon Adeola (Yayi), James Adisa Owolabi, Rasheed Makinde come out victorious at the coming elections.

In his contributions, Hon. (Dr.) Okeyomi (Carry Go) enlightened the various community members why there has been so much confrontation with APC. “The opposition do not want any good for the nation and the generality of Nigerians, this is why the cabals are desperate to come back so they can continue to loot the treasury”.

He stressed that the personality of Muhammadu Buhari is such a big threat to them so much that they wished him dead. “He’s one man that has made the impossible possible within his one term in office. This is why we must ensure return him for the second term to consolidate all he has done so far so we can be proud of our own Nigeria. His foreign policies concerning international currency exchange in world trade has been successfully secured to drastically reduce the price of commodities. Today, we are all proud our major infrastructures have come alive and more are still to come”.

The event, staged by the Hon. Dipo Okeyomi-led Sanwoolu Vanguard in Ojokoro and organized by the Mrs. Rosiji-led Community Directorate was attended by Ojokoro party Chairman, Hon. Bello, MHR Adisa Owolabi, Directors of the various Directorates and scores of party supporters and faithfuls including executives and members of Okeyomi’s CAFI.
