Numerous residents of Amuwo Odofin LGA, Constituency 1, have continued to drum-up support for the election Hon Ola Olaitan Folorunsho aka Olawestern who is the APC candidate for Lagos State House of Assembly, Amuwo Odofin Constituency 1.
Monitoring the street mood and social media commentary on the forth coming March 11th, 2023 gubernatorial and Assembly elections, most residents have expressed confidence in the representation of Olawestern as their preferred choice to the Lagos State House of Assembly.
Pa Pius Chukwu, a resident on 21 road, FESTAC, has said Nigeria needs leaders with capacity and character to manage change in the country. He also noted that while the youths were needed in leadership, they felt excluded from politics and governance and Olawestern fits the bridge between the old and young.
A resident of Mile 2 with the name @Skillyjoe stated that he was born in FESTAC 30 years ago and Olawestern has been a source of inspiration to him despite the fact that he has not met him one-on-one.
Another former CDA Exco, Alhaji Ani stressed that Olawestern has lived amongst the people and knows where it pinches, according to actogenarian ” Olawestern has no reason to fail, “we will vote him”
According to him, Olawestern has the capacity to draw the needed State attention to the infrastructural decay in Amuwo Odofin, ” he will develop and shape the future of Amuwo Odofin LGA”.
The CEO of Basic Stores, stressed that “Many young people are eager to make a change; they cannot change anything if they don’t understand and participate in the political and governance process. Olawestern will help involve more young people and direct their energies into some tangible contributions towards good governance and national development,”.
Chief (Mrs) Esther Kaseem, another resident said, “These are exciting times. In Nigeria and across Lagos State, we are experiencing rapid and relentless changes across every facet of our lives. Some of these changes are technological; others are economic and political. There is also a great deal of demographic and population change. All are happening at the same time. It is clear to anybody paying attention that the old equilibrium is unsettled, and the rules of the old order no longer apply. What is less clear is what happens next but I believe Olawestern is ready to give us that change”.
A key memebr of the ICG in Amuwo in his own submission said “Whatever happens, Amuwo Odofin desperately needs leaders with the capacity and character to manage change. The consequences of the changes happening in our world today will depend on how we respond, the decisions we make, and the ideas we choose to invest in. The quality of our decision-making in politics and governance will define the course of our country. Whether we achieve progress, prosperity, peace, and security for all our people depends entirely on the capacity and competence of our political leadership, we are campaigning for Hon Ola Folorunsho and by Gods grace he will represent us”
Elder Adeyanju, a grassroot politician pointed out that despite been in opposition the legitimacy of the democratic system of government derives from and is sustained by the quality of outcomes – social opportunity, economic prosperity, national security, the rule of law and protection of individual rights. “When democratic self-government falls short of these expectations, it frays the social consensus and public support necessary to sustain it,” – we need someone who understands this and who can deliver. he stated, adding that, “In many critical ways, our best expectations of democracy have not been met for various reasons in Amuwo Odofin.
Hon Hammed Mohammed, a Councillor in Amuwo Odofin LGA, speaking to Push News 24 International on Saturday, called on Amuwo Odofin residents to give the needed support to elect Olawestern as lawmaker towards achieving better representation.
In his words, “Olawestern will be bringing smiles to the faces of his constituents”.
