The All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairmanship Candidate in Igando/Ikotun Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Mr Ahmed Oseni, has promised to run an all-inclusive government if elected in the July 24 local government elections in the state.
In a media chat with journalists at his residence in Isheri-Oshun, Oseni described his victory at the party’s primary election as a collective victory for all APC members in the council, calling for calm among the aspirants and their supporters.
He said his administration would put the interest of the masses first in all decisions if elected, adding that it would be a new dawn for the people of the council.
“I am so happy for the LCDA; this is the time for a new dawn, a time for liberation towards social amenities, empowerment in the LCDA.
“Everybody should know that changes are going to happen. I am very happy for the community and myself, for other aspirants, I say all of us are winners, nobody is a loser.
“The party is supreme. We should all see ourselves as the winner. It would be an inclusive government. We would come together to rule irrespective of your caucus,” Oseni said.
He urged the party members to accept the olive branch extended to them, and join hands to contribute towards the party’s success in the council election, adding that the party belongs to everyone.
While speaking on areas he would focus on if elected, Oseni said his administration would carry out infrastructural upgrades in the council, empower the youths and women, adding that having lived in the council for several years, he was aware of the challenges facing the people.
Oseni added: “The council is lacking in social amenities, we would ensure that we give this a priority, in consultation with the traditional rulers and CDA’s because you can’t rule alone. We would ensure empowerment for men and women and upgrade roads and ensure security”.
