The two time Chairman of Agege Local Government, Chief Enock Kolapomoye Ajiboso, has hinged his political aspiration on the need to always improve the lives of the people.
Ajiboso spoke on Thursday, 30th October, 2014, during the flag off of his desire to run for the Lagos West Senatorial District seat on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Agege.
“You are my people and my aspiration either at the local or state level has always been to improve your welfare. This has not changed and I’m assuring you that on my honour it will not change as we are moving by the grace of God to the federal level,” the former Commissioner for Agriculture and Cooperatives in Lagos State said.
Ajiboso stated that his desire to run for the seat was out of the desire to give robust and productive representation to arguably the largest senatorial district in the country.
“The current occupier of the seat has done a very good job, we will consolidate and improve on his achievements. The focus is the people: ensuring that laws passed have direct positive bearings on the people and that is my major aim,” the former Chairman of Lagos Council Chairmen said.
Ajiboso has no doubt on his ability to do the job. “I have history of performance and you can see the number of people here today. They have belief in my ability to deliver the goods to them and bring dividends of democracy closer to them at their doorsteps,” he said.
The immediate past chairmen of Agege Local Government and Orile Agege Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Alhaji Jubril Abdul Kareem and Honourable Taofeek Abiodun Adaranijo respectively who both worked under Ajiboso were on hand to give moral support to their former boss.
Also present at the occasion were: Chief Saliu Adio Sekoni, Prince Sesan Olanrewaju and Prince Samuel Aina, former Chairmen of Amuwo Odofin, Somolu and Oshodi Isolo Local Government Areas respecitvely all of whom were former colleagues of Ajiboso.
There were equally supporters from all the local governments and LCDAs which make up the senatorial district.
