Chairmanship Aspirant Seeks Tinubu’s Intervention In Reclaiming ‘Stolen Mandate’


A chairmanship aspirant during the 2021 council polls in Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area in Lagos, Hon. Dipo Olorunrinu, has urged the National Leader of theAll Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to address grievances and right the wrongs in the area.

Olorunrinu, a former lawmaker who represented Amuwo-Odofin Constituency I in Lagos State House of Assembly, made the plea on Sunday in a statement.

The former lawmaker explained that there are unresolved issues and uneasiness among party members following the mandate allegedly snatched away from him.

He noted that after he had been declared winner of the APC  primary for the Amuwo-Odofin council topmost seat, his name was substituted for the incumbent chairman, Valentine Buraimoh, to run for second term.

He recounted that after filling all necessary documents prescribed by the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) as party’s flag-bearer, some leaders allegedly manipulated things and substituted his name.

According to him, this has been causing uneasiness in the council with many people disenchanted, hence the plea for the national leader to wade in to resolve all pending issues.

While appealing to Tinubu for the restoration of his mandate, Olorunrinu said that his love for the party was huge but his teeming followers were aggrieved by the development, saying that it formed the reason for seeking redress from the court.

The lawmaker, who noted that his respect for people’s mandate made him resort to seek the audience of the court, urged Tinubu to correct all abnormalities.

Olorunrinu said that as a stakeholder in the party, he had spent a lot of personal earnings on the party and to promote the cause of Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) for 2023.

The former lawmaker, who noted that APC had come to stay in Amuwo-Odofin, said he was not interested in maligning the party for any reason.
