The political landscape of Isolo was in ecstatic mood on Tuesday 25th May 2021 as Unity Forum’s chairmanship candidate, Hon Hakeem Abiodun Muniru took his message of hope to Ajao Estate, Ilasamaja and Alagbeji wards.
With a mammoth crowd of party faithfuls with orange caps and other paraphernalia, it was obvious a new sheriff has come to town.
The intention was to visit the wards in Isolo LCDA and sensitize the party faithfuls about his ambition but since it can’t be described a visitation, is it a rally? No, It was a carnival of some sort.

At Ajao Estate, the Ajjatta Hall on Murtala Muhammed Airport Road was filled to capacity with party members.

Leo Ikeagwu, and Arewa community leaders.

The former House of Representatives member assured that he can’t be found wanting in terms of educational qualification, exposure, training and exquisite experience in administration.
He stated that he has perfected plans to give to each ward according to their needs.
Hon. Akeem appealed to members of the party to come out en masse on Saturday May 29, to vote in the primaries for him and councillorship aspirants in his fold at different wards.
