Gbeleyi said: “He represented Badagry well while he was Special Adviser to Governor Sanwo-Olu and he never discriminate against any region.
“It was obvious he would win. His performance as S.A on Toursim, Arts and Culture earned him many awards and accolades, one of which came from our company, AGIL Group. His vision for Badagry is clear and members of his constituency should relax and cooperate with him to deliver his manifesto.”
