Why we endorse Gbadamosi as Lagos governor – Lekki Elite Group
A group, Lekki Elites for Good Governance (LEGG), on Sunday urged the electorate in Lagos State to vote for Mr Babatunde Gbadamosi, the Action Democratic Party (ADP) governorship candidate in the forthcoming general elections.
The chairman of the group, Dr Ayodeji Adekunle, also urged residents in the Lekki/Ajah area of the state to use their votes to compensate Gbadamosi.
He said this was because of Gbadamosi’s struggles for the betterment of people in the area.
He said the choice of Gbadamosi was based on his pedigree and contributions to the affairs of people of the area and the state.
It should be recalled that Gbadamosi, a real Estate tycoon, owns the prestigious Amen Estate, located in Eleko Beach Road, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos.
Adekunle told newsmen in Lagos that the group was apolitical.
It, however, decided to rally support for the ADP candidate realising that he was the only alternative for the desires of a better Lagos State
He said Gbadamosi had contributed immensely to the development of the area and by extension, the state.
Adekunle stressed that Gbadamosi had been the one fighting that the toll plazas on the Lekki-Ajah roads by the Lagos State Government should be reduced.
Gbadamosi said that would reduce the stress and economic implications it was bringing on some of the residents of the state.
“ Gbadamosi has distinguished himself as a built- environment specialist. He is the kind of personality that can meet the yearnings of the people of Lagos State.
“ He is an individual that stands to defend the voiceless in the state at all times.
“And it is time he is given an opportunity to rescue the state from the various challenges currently plaguing it.
” The PDP is not and cannot be an alternative to governance again in Nigeria including Lagos State, having misled the country for 16 years.
“We have enjoyed the personal contributions of Gbadamosi in road rehabilitations, scholarships and interventions in the lives of people in need in general.
“Lagos needs a man like Gbadamosi whose pedigree revolves not only on intelligence but also on humanitarian factor.
“He is a very compassionate and highly principled man
“We urge the people of Lagos State to vote Gbadamosi as their governor in the forthcoming general elections.
“He is the conscience of Lagos State and the only candidate that will not renege on his promises to the people.
“ We remain committed to his candidature as he is the kind of personality who can lead Lagos State out of its present challenges.
“ The worsening gridlock in the state, tolling on the Lekki roads and high cost of housing are issues that cannot continue.
“Only a change of governance can usher in the yearnings of the mass of the people of the state.
“We must not be swayed by pledges that will never be fulfilled.
” A time for change is now, and the best among the alternatives is Gbadamosi,” the group said. (NAN)
