A group – Concerned Youths of Badagry Federation has appealed to the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to appoint one of their Abdul-Lateef Yahaya, in the All Progressives Congress (APC) into his cabinet.
Why Sanwo-Olu Need To Appoint Abdul-Lateef Yahaya Into His Executive
The group is making the request because they claimed that Sanwo-Olu had pledged so to Yahaya on May 27th in order to resolve the APC Primaries crises in Badagry Constituency 1.
What The Concerned Youths of Badagry Federation Requested From Sanwo-Olu
Writing to Mr. Governor, the group made their request saying:
“We request you to consider Abdul-Lateef Yahaya – who is co-winner of 2023 APC primaries for House of Assembly in Badagry I, Lagos State, for appointment in your exco.
“Sir, shortly after APC primaries on May 27, a meeting took place at your official residence in State House, Marina, where you met with Dr. Sunny Ajose, our leader in APC Badagry Federation; Cornelius Ojelabi, state APC chairman, Fatai Ayoola, chairman of Ajeromi LCDA; Olusegun Onilude, chairman of Badagry Local Government; and Abdul-Lateef Yahaya.
“Sir, we believe in the conclusion of that meeting where you promised that if Yahaya, who polled 14 votes like his co-contestant, would concede and allow Solomon Bonu to be APC flagbearer, you would ensure he is compensated to serve in your administration’s second term.”
Some Projects Made By Sanwo-Olu and the APC in Badagry Lately
Also, they applauded Sanwo-Olu and the APC for the victory and projects in Badagry citing the reconstruction of the Badagry Market to hospital roads down to ASCON Road as well as the Peridot/EchoStone Housing Estate, Mother and Child Centre in General Hospital, and Lagos Theatre as laudable projects in the ancient town.
