Hon. Adegeye popularly called the Iya alaanu of Amuwo Odofin is presently a commissioner at the Lagos State House of Assembly Civil Service Commission. By this endorsement is now the sole candidate of the Mandate Movement of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Amuwo Odofin LGA and Oriade LCDA, market men and women, youth groups, professional groups/ organizations, CDA’s, Hausa community, Igbo community, social clubs and the South-south group of the two local governments under her constituency.
Rising from a gathering of the Amuwo Odofin LGA and Oriade LCDA Mandate Movements stakeholders and members, on Wednesday August 1st, at the 206 garden Festac in Amuwo Odofin LGA, it was agreed that in view of Hon. Adegeye achievements in terms of physical infrastructure, unequalled empowerment and human capital development “we have unanimously chosen her as the only candidate for Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency 2019”.
The communique read at the end of the meeting explained that “after extensive brainstorming on the forthcoming 2019 election as it affects the seat of the Federal House of Representative, it was unanimously resolved that Hon. Adegeye remains our best candidate to be elected for the post as the member representing Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency, during the next national assembly election come 2019.”
The communique stated that “Hon. Adegeye, a former lawmaker is the only one who never abandoned nor left the people at anytime, a politician who believes in the stability of her constituency, her drive for good governance and development is a testimony of her unflinching efforts in transforming her constituency.
The gathering said the mistake of the last federal house of representative election must not be repeated as such popularity, acceptability, and meritocracy must not be sacrificed for pettiness and sentiments. All the unparalleled attributes of Hon. Adegeye are ultimately meant to compliment the efforts of Governor Akinwumi Ambode and President Muhammad Buhari, in the economy diversification agenda and the emancipation of the down trodden which is way of life.
It added that besides endorsing her to represent the interest of our great constituency, the gathering explained that she is the only candidate that can guarantee the APC an effortless victory and fetch the Senate, Governor and President the required unequalled votes with her popularity/goodwill across all parties.
The endorsement gathering believed that the Constitution did not put a bar to her aspiration as a one-term Lagos State lawmaker who is aspiring for this position to represent her people’s interest.
She is the most qualified, experienced, philanthropical, popular and acceptable politician to serve as a national legislator in Amuwo Odofin Federal constituency and our believe is that “the value of the experience acquired at the Lagos State House of Assembly could not be discarded and wasted but consolidated upon in the interest of Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency.”
The beneficiaries of her unending goodwill, were not left out as they flooded 206 park to show solidarity and support to Hon. Adegeye 2019 project as the only one endowed with the requisite requirements to represent the interest of the generality of Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituents irrespective of party, tribe, religion or qualification.
