2023 : IKORODU WEST IS NO LONGER A CATCHMENT AREA FOR DESPERATE POLITICIANS
As all is getting set for political parties to conduct their primaries as various aspirants under different political platforms have started scheming through various clandestine means to woo party delegates towards becoming candidates of their parties.
Expectedly, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) which is at the center of Ikorodu Division governance is not left out of the frenzy.
Party stalwart and former LGA Youth Leader of Ikorodu West LCDA, Prince Olalekan Ojo Martins has reacted to the passived marginalisation of Ikorodu West LCDA in the scheme of political nominations and appointment in Lagos State.
Bebenlo as he is fondly called flared a situation where Ikorodu West is seen as a mere additional catchment area of some desperate politicians in the division who would rather patronise the LCDA to score political patronage.
” It’s unfortunate that Ikorodu West LCDA has not benefitted directly from any major State appointment despite contributing largely to the center”
” Our people are given crumbs during every political season and used as instruments of cheap political maneuvering, this will no longer continue as our people are wiser” he said
Martins sighted the lopsidedness in State appointments, House of Representatives and moreso in the front burner is the Lagos State House of Assembly Constituency 1 which has been at the fiery advantage of Ikorodu Central despite quality aspirants from Ikorodu West over the years.
“Enough of the monopoly of Constituency 1 Assembly, enough of the rhetorics other LCDA’s are stakeholders and must be given the opportunity just like Constituency 2 has maintained a steady progress” Martins said.
