House of Assembly member representing Ikorodu State Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Nurudeen Saka Solaja, on Thursday, 7 April, 2022 met with the leadership and members of Elder Reuben Adenrele Olowu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Igbogbo/ Bayeku LCDA, to seek re-election for another term in office.
Solaja’s visit was greeted by cheerful party members at the APC Caucus meeting held at the residence of Elder Olowu.
While the APC Caucus of Elder Olowu drummed up support for the re-election of Hon. Nurudeen Solaja, the Chairman of the state Assembly Public Account Committee (PAC) for State, reeled out his seven year scorecards and future programmes if given the mandate to represent the people of Ikorodu constituency 2 again.
He therefore, enjoined all well meaning sons, daughters, and residents of Ikorodu State Constituency II to support him as his return to the House will attract fresh meaningful development and consolidation of existing state facilitated projects across the three councils that made up the constituency
In his brief remarks, Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe showered encomium on Solaja as a silent achiever whose seven years in office as Assembly member has recorded and attracted laudable projects which Ikorodu Constituency || will forever remember him for.
“If we return Solaja, the gains and blessings to Ikorodu Constituency 2 is enormous,” he said adding that rotation is good but not at the expense of development, progress and prosperity of the constituency.
Ogunlewe added that replacing Solaja with a newcomer will take the constituency backward as most junior members would go to the Assembly to learn the rope of legislative business.
Saying it is time for Ikorodu Constituency II to rise above primordial sentiments and stop taking the backseat in the Lagos Assembly every eight years, rotation according to Ogunlewe, makes development stagger and stagnant.
Speakers after speakers led by the caucus Chairman, Alhaji Benson passed vote of confidence on Hon. Solaja, assuring him of the group’s maximum, undivided support in the upcoming primary and general elections
