… Says ‘I will continue from where Yayi Stops’
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos West Senatorial District, Dr Idiat Adebule urged women and youths to vote en masse for all APC candidates in the forthcoming general election.
She spoke yesterday during a stakeholders’ meeting with non-indigenes, artisans, traders and youths in Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government and Ifelodun Local Council Development Area.
She promised to take the developmental programmes up from where the outgoing senator representing the district, Solomon Olamilekan, (aka Yayi) stops.
According to her, more empowerment programmes would be introduced for the women to make them self-sustained.
She solicited their support for women politicians to excel, vowing to be a good representation of the womenfolk if elected.
Adebule said there would be training for artisans on how to improve their skills and make more income.
The former deputy governor of Lagos state, however, promised to equip the youth with the necessary technical know-how to give them an advantage in the labour market.
Chairman of Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government Adekunle Abdulfatai Ayoola urged those who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) to do so.
Ayoola appealed to the royal fathers to educate the youths on voting for the right candidates.
He said the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and all party’s candidates would deliver dividends of democracy to the youth.
Chairman of Ifelodun Local Council Development Area, Mayor Olufemi Okeowo described Adebule as the best woman to represent the district.
He said her experience would be needed to move the district forward if elected.
He called on the traders and artisans to mobilise their members to vote for her and other APC candidates.
