Lagos APC Debunks Council Chairmanship Primary Elections’ Result Circulating In Public ~Ajasa-Info

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos Chapter, has debunked that the state chapter of the party had not released any results in connection with just concluded council chairmanship primary elections conducted across Lagos over the weekend.

APC reaction was coming after a fabricated result started circulating in public as against the party’s pattern of communicating critical information on elections to public domain.

Declaring the result false and fabricated, the spokesperson, APC Lagos chapter, Seye Oladejo, disassociated the party from the result in the public, saying that, no information has emanated from the state chapter and that the public should disregard such information

“No result has emanated from our office in Acme, Ikeja and that is not APC’s usual way of communicating election result to party members and the public”.

History has been made both in Ifako-Ijaiye and Lagos State entirely. In history, never have we conducted elections that won’t result in bloodshed and loss of life but for the first time; NO lives were lost, NO properties were damaged and most importantly the great people of Ifako-Ijaiye were allowed to vote and choose their candidates.

Our chairmanship candidate emerged as well as 7 Councillors without a single loss of life and/or properties.

I want to use this medium to congratulate you all being my greatest asset; the ever-resourceful, outstanding, intelligent, hardworking and courageous people of Ifako-Ijaiye.

You charted a new journey towards greatness on Saturday 29th May, 2021 and without your steadfast support, our party candidate would have remained an aspirant.

To my dearest Leaders and Stakeholders in the Local Government, you have made your position clear, you have separated and distinguished yourselves from the lying, betraying, treacherous, Selfish, and self-centered “politricians” and self acclaimed leaders.

You have indeed put the interest of the people and the development of our local government as your priority. You took the risk against all odds and stood your ground against those who have nothing but selfish agendas to continue to distort the peace and growth of our beloved community.
May History favor you as we will never forget you.

Our Royal fathers and Baales, your decision to support us came from a vantage point while communicating to us your community needs and you have also given us a reason to always rely on and believe in you.

To my most pleasant, resourceful, and outstanding Vice Chairman and Incoming Chairman Hon. Prince Usman Akanbi Hamzat; I warmly congratulate you, your resilience and patience all through your tenure as the Vice Chairman of our local government have yielded you a space in the heart of our people and today you are reaping the benefits.

On behalf of the entire local Government, I congratulate you once again my dearest brother.

You have come at a time that our local government is bestowed with humongous debts, infrastructural decay, social and environmental/developmental deficits. We the people have chosen you because we believe in you, please do not let us down. We have clamored for youthful representation and now we have gotten it and we are sure you will deliver!

Let me state here clearly that should you go against the wish of the people and their expectations in terms of structural development, basic amenities, staff and peoples welfare, provision of drainages, good and motorable roads, improved healthcare services, upgrade of our primary healthcare systems and our basic needs; I would be the first to call you out and express the people’s displeasure.

To our 7 Councillors, especially those of you returning for your second term, make your experience count. You have been given another opportunity to serve the people of your Ward, do not take this for granted. The legislative house shall continue to be the basis and the back bone of democracy and so I implore you to uphold the constitution to the best of your abilities.

To our outgoing councillors, it has been a journey, for what has a beginning must have an end. Do not see this as the end of the road but know that history has written your name in Gold. You stood your groundnds! Now is the time for you to right all wrongs and set a long-lasting record of performance. You have indeed done your best and I pray the almighty continue to be with you as you onward to the next phase of your life.

To our beloved CDC and CDA’s you have shown that the community will continue to be the backbone of Local Government governance. You have set a record and I am more than proud of you. You chose your aspirant and you worked tirelessly to ensure his Victory. Pastor Samuel Opajobi we say thank you.

To the CAN and Muslim Community, your love, prayers and the hard efforts you put in this shall not be in vain. Your prayers and words of wisdom brought us this far and we say thank you.

MY YOUTHS!!!… MY YOUTHS!!!… You asked for it and now you have gotten it. When we build the youths we build the Nation. You stood against oppression and intimidation, you stood against selfish, self cente, red and ungrateful leaders, and stood your grounds. This Victory is Ours!!!

We thank all our market women and men, LASCOTA, NATA, NURTW and all other associations.

To all our aspirants who stepped down and put first the Party and the development of our Local Government, we thank you. Now the work begins we must continue to consolidate on our gains and start the reconciliation process.

Our party is one and indivisible, we will continue to clamor for unity, love, and peace.

The attention of Hakeem Solawon Campaign Organisation has been drawn to a defeatist release that the primary in ward c2 Igbogbo-Baiyeku LCDA was a charade, and inconclusive. This was contained in a press release by the group’s Media & Publicity Director, Sanusi Taofeeq on Monday, May 30th, 2020.

“We wish to state unequivocally that the contest was free, fair, peaceful and greeted with massive turn out ever recorded in the history of primary elections in our great party.”

“Our dear party members have spoken loud and clear even under the rain with their votes that a new dawn has come in Ward C2, Igbogbo-Baiyeku LCDA and it’s time to unite and rebuild.”

“Our position is that our Symbol, Hon. Akeem Solawon who has been contesting for the post of Ward C2 councillor for the past fourteen (14)years is a law-abiding, consist loyal party member, a popular grass-rooter with wide political exposure to defeat the incumbent.”

“Akeem Solawon popular known as Akile did not only defeat the incumbent councillor Hon. Wasiu Olowu, he won with a landslide. Our indefatigable Symbol, Solawon knocks out Wasiu Olowu with a vote margin of 92votes. While Wasiu Olowu polled 107votes, Solawon coasts home with 199votes.”

“Hon. Wasiu Olowu saying in his recent statement that “the primary election was inconclusive and therefore called on all to disregard the purported falsified results being circulated, as we await the decision of the party and the leaders who are working assiduously to address the illegality and abnormalities committed by the electoral officials with their collaborators” is absurd. Height of insults to internal democracy of our party.”

“This erroneously depicts our party in bad light
The votes were counted and recorded by APC Ward c2 Electoral Officer, Mrs Toyin Philips, in the presence of WARD C2 PARTY CHAIRMAN Alhaji Daisi Omotayo who didn’t just witness the counting but also monitored the electoral materials from voting point to collation centre where other wards’ votes were equally counted.”

“So where was the election result falsified or doctored? This can only happened in the widest imagination of a desperate, self-deflating mindsets. We call on members of the public to disregard attempt to subvert the will of the people.”

“We wish to salute the determination of our esteemed supporters, party members, community leaders, party leaders, on-ground who puts up human walls against intimidation, and snatching of ballot box by unscrupulous elements who had planned to truncate the peaceful exercise with large turn out.”

“Akeem Solawon Campaign Organisation (ASCO) wish to call on all our esteemed members to remain calm and loyal to the outcome and decision of the party in the days ahead.”

“The primary election is in the past. It’s time to put behind us the harsh political banters, to see each other again, unite, make progress, and work for the victory of our party in the next general election. It is about time we stopped treating ourselves as opponents, we are family, we are in the same party, We are not enemies. We are APC, We are Ward C2.”

Yesterday, 29th May, 2021 was a bright day which the APC party chose as the day to chose the candidates that will represent the party at the coming council elections which is slated for 24th July, 2021. Party FAITHFULS across the six wards in ojodu LCDA had gathered to choose their preferred candidate and they came out in their numbers early enough to ensure that they elect who will represent them at the polls come July 24.

As early as 7am, a lot of party members had besieged the OJODU GRAMMAR SCHOOL field to exercise their rights by voting for their choice candidates and were expecting the electoral officers from the state to come and conduct the primary election. The Team Faleke organised tents and chairs for their teeming members to make them comfortable as they wait to cast their votes while other factions were also in their corners different from the Team Faleke. There was calm and normalcy as we all wait for the electoral officers to come.

At about past 9 or so, the sitting chairman of the OJODU LCDA drove in to the premises of the OJODU GRAMMAR SCHOOL and came down briefly from his bus and when he saw the teeming members of the Team Faleke that were easily identified with the way they were organised and sat under the canopy with the overflow also, the chairman was heard saying there will be no election today and he entered his bus and zoomed off. People waited till past 12 before the electoral officers came but we heard from a very reliable source that the electoral officers were taken into the council Secretariat (not lga secretariat) which is unconstitutional and we’re delayed by the council chairman for hours before he released them.

The council chairman, Engr. Oloro also used his powers to manipulate the voters register thereby taking the register of Ward B to ward B and then another register was taking to ward D which made it difficult for voters to exercise their rights which later to disruption of votes in those wards.

As regards ward F, when the electoral officers arrived at the venue at about past 12 noon, what they did was to first of all address the crowd and asked them to cooperate in terms of lining up. They went further to announce the names of councillorship aspirants which were Hon. OLUMIDE AKINADE Amos and Afolake Adams, that was when the trouble started. An aspirant which has been disqualified by the screening committee whose name is Laide Adebowale and his few supporters began to forment trouble chanting we no go gree and other ‘war’ songs. The electoral officers tried their best to calm the nerves of the few supporters of Laide but all to no avail.

This was where the MHR, IKEJA FEDERAL CONSTITUENCY, RT. HON. James ABIODUN FALEKE came in to intervene in the matter of the aspirant. Ward F is Hon. Falekes’ ward and that’s where he usually exercise his voting rights. He asked Laide Adebowale to produce the evidence that he was cleared by the screening committee, Laide brought out his phone and was trying to show him on his phone, it was at that point that supporters of Laide and Rasheed Aro started chanting and insulting the MHR just because he was trying to make peace between Laide and the electoral officers. It was later agreed by the electoral officers that Laides name will be included in the list but he insisted that they have to go back to the party Secretariat and bring the original document where his name was.

The Rasheed Aros’ faction who were also in the minority and did not want the election to hold connived with other minority faction to disrupt the whole election process and the electoral officers who were about to be mobbed by this group had to hurriedly leave the scene to avoid any form of lynching.

Hon. Faleke peacefully left the canopy while it was getting tensed and had to go and sit down somewhere in the premises while the electoral left with their materials.
The Team Faleke teeming members in ward F then write their names down in their attendance sheet and was at the venue till Hon. Faleke left.

Yesterdays’ event at ward F was a clear signal that he who is on the ground fears no fall, the other faction saw it clearly that there’s an impending loss and the only they thought they could prevent that was to connive and disrupt the process. We have in our kitty evidences of the large numbers of people who were ready to cast their votes for the most popular candidate; ALHAJA KAFAYAT FUNMILAYO LAYENI (KFL) and the margin would have been very huge.

We are rest assured that the party at the top will investigate this and ensure that justice is done. Team Faleke members in ward F are also rest assured that our mandate that we were ready to give to KFL shall not be robbed from us. Let’s all keep all hopes alive as victory is sure.

God bless us all.


The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has charged newly promoted officers and men of the Federal Fire Service (FFS) to step up their games in their responses to emergencies across the country.

Ogbeni Aregbesola stated that the safety and protection of lives and property of Nigerians should not be handled with levity, hence the need for the officers and men of FFF to brace up for challenges across the country.

Aregbesola, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, gave the charge while decorating 157 newly promoted officers of the Federal Fire Service at the service headquarters in Abuja.

“You must step up your performance and ensure as much as possible, to step down response time to emergency calls and as well, have the right attitude to grow the service so that the public will recognize how important and effective you are, because, to whom much is given, much is expected,” he said.

He added that being worthy of promotion was just the first step, earning the confidence the people have in them is very necessary.

The Minister who congratulated the officers for their well-deserved promotion, stated that it was an honour to decorate the officers after due process had been followed by they sitting for the examination, screened, confirmed and found worthy of being promoted.

‘The future of the service to a large extent is in your hands and you are responsible for encouraging those funding the service,’ he stressed.

He noted further that, the most important duties of the service was not only putting out fire which is what most people think but rescuing and saving lives and property of citizens.

Earlier in his remarks, the Controller General of the Federal Fire Service, Dr. Liman Alhaji Ibrahim appreciated the efforts of the Minister and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior by ensuring that the service is being positively reformed.

Among the 157 officers promoted were: four Deputy Controller Generals; 14 Assistant Controller Generals; nine Controllers (CFs); 11 Deputy Controllers (DCFs); and 26 Assistant Controllers (ACFs).

Sadly, an officer who was to be decorated died before the event.


Ladies and gentlemen, No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks. We have come together today, to express our profound gratitude for the sacrifices, contributions strength and commitment that you all display every single day.  Whenever this country calls, you all are the ones who answer, no matter the circumstance, no matter the danger, no matter the sacrifice, and this you do, with high morale.

The Nigerian Armed forces is not only our pride but also our super heroes, our saviours from all those hostile enemies, both external and internal.

Moving through the creeks of Opobo in the Niger Delta where these gallant men and women keep wake in Operation PULO SHIELD, among others, to ensure the continuous flow of crude that keeps the nation’s economy afloat, to the vast forest in North East Nigeria, to Oke Ero forest in Kwara state and Internal Security operations in other North Central zones, and in the North West. Also on the streets of Owerri in South East Nigeria, we can say that the Nigerian military truly observes federal character, not only in the ethnic composition, but in the spread of its gallantry across the nation in support of civil authority, especially the Nigerian Navy, Airforce, Police and other security agencies.

The rescue of about 101 abducted female students at Dapchi, in Yobe State, together with several women and children from the enclaves and cocoon of Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists, also the rescue of over 300 students abducted from a boys’ public school in Katsina, amongst others, is another testimony to the fact that the Army, the Navy, and Air force can achieve success through their collaborative efforts towards emergency response.

We commend the Nigerian Airforce for providing strategic airlifts, air interdictions, surveillance, logistic supplies for the Armed Forces. However, there is need for synergies among the services as one body. A lot of work have to be done regarding the insecurity in the country.

While we understand that war requires patience and discipline, the promise of ending terrorism must be realised.

We call on Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), operating in the North-east to desist from compromising national security and war efforts against terrorism and insurgency. We also call on Nigerians to shun divisive actions, comments that could jeopardize the unity and progress of the nation, and support our military in its bid to stamp out insurgency, banditry and other crimes.

We commend the Muhammadu Buhari administration for the timely provision of adequate resources and necessary logistics support for the Armed Forces to operate with the best and modern warfare equipment, while at the same time addressing the issues of their welfare.

This administration has greatly encouraged local production of armoured fighting vehicles and other military hardwares. These visionary steps has profoundly impacted positively on the Nigerian military operations.

We also want to use this opportunity to celebrate the Former Chief of Army Staff, COAS, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai (rtd), for his exceptional leadership, in seriously degrading Boko Haram, reducing the terror group to a shadow of itself. Buratai’s presence on the frontline, his strategy of making the welfare of soldiers his paramount priority, boosted the morale of troops immensely. We believe that his new duties will deliver the required international collaboration to wipe-out terrorism and whenever the clarion calls.

We also appreciate the Honourable Minister of Defence, Maj Gen Bashir Magashi (Rtd) For his incredible leadership.

We also appreciate the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), the Police Intelligence, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), for their efforts leading to the arrest of sponsors of terrorism and insurgency. We urge them to expose and arraign terrorists, insurgents and their sponsors in court as soon as possible.

We condole with the Nigerian military over the tragic death of COAS, Lt Gen Ibrahim Attahiru, and other military officers and men who died in the Air Force plane crash on Friday 21 May, in Kaduna. They gave their lives in the line of duty and patriotic service to the nation.

The Late COAS was patriotic in the fight against insurgency within the short period he served the nation. Nigerians followed with keen interest the tremendous progress and notable achievement he was recording in the fight against insurgency, kidnappings, and banditry. We would forever remember him for his bravery, commitment and determination in his quest for a better and secure Nigeria.

We must honor the good works of our Fallen Heroes, as well as the patience and sacrifices of their families. We must remain worthy of their sacrifice—forever committed to the country they loved and died for.

We use this opportunity to congratulate Major General Farouk Yahaya, on his appointment as the Chief of Army Staff. We have no doubt that the appointment would bring new hope, commitment and renewed energy, taking off from where his predecessor left in service delivery to the Army and to the nation.

This is the second edition of the God Bless Nigeria Group Armed Forces Appreciation Day. We shall continue to support the Nigerian Armed forces yearly, as patriotic citizens. Today and every day, we are grateful for the sacrifices of the Nigerian military. Thank you for defending the territorial integrity of our fatherland.

God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
God bless the Nigerian Army

It is no longer news that the Ikorodu/ Shagamu road has been a death pit to its residents and commuters.
The recent increase in nos of accidents and death has pushed the commuters to stage a fierce protest this morning.

In 2018, the minister for works and housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola was present at the flag-off ceremony of this road, he made promises that the construction would kick off with immediate effect.

As against our expectations, the commencement started after some months and continued for about 6months. Since 2018, the road condition is not something to talk about.
From the day to day accidents to increase in number of deaths and lost of goods and products.

The government’s attention has been called to this issues several times with them turning deaf ears to the cries of the residents and commuters.
Several complaints have been made to the ministry, radio stations have also made lots of efforts but nothing has been done to the development of this road most especially the Lagos State Polytechnic- Sawmill axis.

All these has been bottled in and accepted by the commuters until today that they have decided to keep quiet no more. They have poured to the road to show their anger and grievances by blocking the road.
