As Local government elections draw nearer in Lagos State, the Action Democratic Party (ADP) has conducted its primaries to elect its standard bearers across the state for the election.
Speaking in an interview with journalists at the venue of the exercise, which was held at the party’s state secretariat at JKK shopping complex in Ijegun, state chairman of the party, Mr. Adebowale Bolaji, expressed confident that the party was ready to offer purposeful leadership and deliver the dividend of democracy to Lagosians at the grassroots if voted into office.
He said the party was not intimidated by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and its antics, warning that the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) must strive to conduct a free and fair election that is accepted by all stakeholders.
“The situation is unbearable now, people want a new crop of leaders who would salvage the situation and ADP is there to fill the gap and that is why we went for youths.
“If the press can be watchful they can see and tell the world if any irregularity takes place. LASIEC is supposed to be independent, and be fair to everybody not minding who put them there, there should be justice,” Adebowale said.
Some of the Chairmanship candidates are; Oluwatobi Oyekan (Agege LG), Musibau Adebiyi (Igando Ikotun LCDA), Kareem Ibrahim (Ayobo Ipaja LCDA), Ishola Bamidele (Orile Agege LG) and Felix Agboola (Iba LCDA).
