We Will Intensify Voters Awareness Campaign Across All Wards – Sanwo-Olu’s Aide


By Okunade Adekunle, Lagos

In order to reduce voters apathy and increase people’s involvement in the political process in Lagos State, the Senior Special Assistant To Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Political Matters, Mr Peter Ajayi, has said that his office would start intensive voters awareness campaign across all the wards in the state so as to enlighten voters on voting behavior and electoral process.

Ajayi, who disclosed this at the stakeholders meeting with Ejigbo LCDA All Progressives Congress (APC) ward executives in Ejigbo, Lagos, on Sunday, stated that the essence of the wards awareness campaign was to boost citizens participation in the political and policy initiation process.

He added that the awareness campaign would be carried out in each of the wards in the state separately so as to achieve its expected purpose.

“The responsibility of voters awareness should not be left alone to either Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) or political parties, government can as well help in this area because people’s participation in policy process is key for a successful policy initiation and implementation”, said Ajayi.

“There is a nexus between political participation and public policy support by the people and we all know people must be carried along in all these things if we want to achieve the agenda of greater Lagos. Achieving a greater Lagos is non negotiable. It is a joint task as a people”, said.

While speaking on Sanwo-Olu’s Eid Kabir gift to the people, he added that the citizens response to it was impressive, saying that he had been receiving commendable messages from the beneficiaries since the commencement of the programme.

He added, “Concerning the distribution of Sanwo-Olu’s Eid Kabir gifts to the people, I have been receiving commendable messages from the people. They commended the way we shared the gift items. The exact amount of money was received by beneficiaries.

“Sallah gift still being shared even after the celebration”, said Ajayi.

The meeting with the wards Leaders which lasted for 3hrs was later ended with a funfair with community members who showered encomium on Gov. Sanwo-Olu on his development stride so far.

Part of those who attended the programme are; the Executive Chairman of Ejigbo LCDA, Hon. Monsuru Obe, Ejigbo APC Chairman, Hon Kashunmu, and members of the party’s executive council, and all the ward Chairmen including some of their executive members.
