Mr Adamson Ayinde, an All Progressives Congress (APC) aspirant in the Lagos State Local Government elections slated for July 22, has promised to continue the reforms of Gov. Akinwumi Ambode at the council level.
Ayinde made this promise in a statement he made available to newsmen on Monday in Abuja, in which he declared his interest to contest the chairmanship of Onigbongbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA).
He said that it was obvious that Ambode was changing the face of Lagos State by bringing to fruition the Lagos of “our dream” through hard work and this would be replicated in the council,’’ Ayinde added.
According to him, Onigbongbo LCDA is an important council area that needs a visionary and charismatic leader, who will help to realise the desire of the people.
He said he would bring the dividends of democracy to the grassroots, adding that Onigbonbo would be better off with his candidature, even as he implored delegates to elect him as flag bearer in the primaries.
Ayinde said that the era of sharing money, impunity and other acts of sabotage that had held the council hostage would end if elected.
The APC primary election is slated for May 6 and 13 while the Local Government poll is slated for July 22.
Lagos state has 20 Local Government Areas (LGA) while it also has 37 Local Community Development Areas (LCDA), which was created during the tenure of former Gov. Bola Tinubu for administrative purpose.
Ayinde said that the cardinal point of APC party manifesto was to create wealth and fast-track development through massive infrastructure, adding that he would pursue them with zeal and vigour.
According to him, wealth will not only be created but he will ensure an enabling environment for business to thrive and engage the youth in ventures that will make them productive.
“I will pursue a development drive that will have a multiplier effect on the people of Onigbongbo LCDA,” he added.
