As general elections move closer, the Nupe community in Lagos Mainland has thrown its weight behind the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the House of Representatives for Lagos Mainland Federal Constituency, Hon Jide Jimoh.
This was disclosed by the Nupe leader in the constituency, Alhaji Baba Mohammed during a solidarity visit to the campaign office of Jimoh, who is the immediate past chairman of Yaba Local Council Development Area on Monday, 23rd March, 2015.
“As elections remain come closer, our votes are for Jide Jimoh and all APC candidates in Lagos State. All of us cannot be in the position of leadership, someone must be there and today we are supporting you to win this election. In Yaba/Mainland, our population is more than 7000, therefore we are assuring you of hundred percent of our votes.
“We really appreciate what you did during your tenure as the council chairman. So we need you to do more when you get to a higher position, ” he said.
In his reaction, Hon. Jide Jimoh said that the election is not for him alone but for the presidential candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari and all other APC candidates.
“Voting for me is not the most important in the forthcoming elections, but we must ensure that Muhammadu Buhari and all APC candidates win the elections in a landslide.
“By the grace of the Almighty God, our presidential candidate and other candidates of the APC, including me, will win the election. Therefore, let’s win all local governments in Lagos State for APC with our vote as other states will do on the day of the elections,” he said.
