…..donates borehole to Abule Oja community
Deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Ms Funke Akindele, has charged residents of the state to protect their votes on election day.
Akindele made the charge on Wednesday while commissioning a borehole donated to Abule Oja community in Yaba.
She said the sinking of the borehole was to address the problem of water supply in the community, saying that the state government had failed in its responsibility of providing adequate social amenities for the people.
The PDP deputy governorship candidate explained that she was born and brought up in Mainland, adding “This is like coming back home.”
” Project like borehole for water supply to the people is a necessity not a luxury. The APC government has failed in its responsibility of providing portable water for this community. This borehole is what the community needs for their existence. I don’t expect the government to perceive the provision of portable water for the people as luxury.
“My principal, Jandor and I believe that the welfare of Lagosians is sacrosanct and that is what we stand for. We stand for good governance. We are ready to govern Lagos for the benefit of Lagosians. We are hungry to serve our people.
“The love for better life for women and children and what he experienced while growing up, made Jandor to appoint a woman as his deputy. The woman he appointed is the one standing and talking before you right now. This is an indication that thr interest of the women and the children would be better protection under the PDP led government in Lagos.
“We are not like other politicians who make promise and not fulfill it. I can assure you that we would fulfill all our promises because we are not product of godfatherirm like the current government in Lagos.
“I am urging our fathers, mothers and youths here to go out there to spread the gospel of Jandor/Funke to their neighbours and friends. Another thing I want to tell you is that you should vote PDP from presidential election to the House of Assembly election. All our candidates are brilliant, intelligent, knowledgeable and capable to deliver on their mandate,” she added.
In his comments, Baale of Abule Oja, Chief Ashimiyu Abayomi, thanked the PDP deputy governorship candidate, saying that it was good that she did not forget her base.
Abayomi said that he was happy that all PDP candidates were not product of godfatherism, saying that they must fulfill their promises if elected.
