- Say he is the government that we see, he lives among us
Residents of Amuwo Odofin have called on the All Progressive Congress (APC) to quickly rectify the problems of candidacy of the law maker to represent the Amuwo Odofin constituency II at the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The residents who spoke to newsreportersng.com said the APC must tidy up its house or they will loose the election to the main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
According to Mufutau Kareem, who resides in the Old Ojo road area of Amuwo Odofin, “the candidate we know and who has been working for us is Hon. Akeem Bello, he reaches out to the people and make us feel that there is a government within us and if APC fail to choose this candidate, I am sorry people around here will vote against them.”
According the residents Hon Bello is like an Angel sent by God to alleviate the problems of the community and it is either him for APC legislative election for Lagos or nobody, “because this man more than others has touched our lives, there is nothing we call him to do for us that he does not do. He is our man for the job.”
Also, the Ohanaeze Nd’Igbo in the area has thrown their weight being the candidacy of Honourable Akeem Bello and called on their members and all persons of Igbo extraction in the constituency to vote Honourable Bello in March 2 elections.
Indeed, investigations within the community have shown that Hon Bello is a different kind of politicians and there is not where you go to that you will not feel his presence, “churches, mosques, schools everywhere he is there working to push the agenda of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).”
