Engr.

This will be our negotiating power at the state to drive home suitable, deserved political appointments and more dividends of democracy for the good people of Ifako-Ijaiye and Ojokoro.
Engr. Adekunle Olayinka said that the final list of candidates for the upcoming poll will soon be released and party FAITHFULS should accept the final decisions of the party as sacrosanct and binding on all.

Engr. Adekunle Olayinka in his concluding address enjoined The KOPI Family and All Progressives Congress (APC) family at home and in diaspora to adopt the age long political readiness tactics he termed “Kóló Party Loyalty Ideal”.
Kóló also known as piggy bank is a saving box used in the olden and present days to keep valuables and soft assets. Kóló is readily available and accesible anytime, anyday you have needs for your valuables, hence, the adoption of the “Kóló Party Loyalty Ideal” by all members of APC to keep their voter’s and membership card and that of their family members and when a need arises for its use, members could just open the “Kóló”, use the cards and afterward return the cards back into the “Kóló” savely. An official prototype of the “Kóló” will be unveiled soon.
