Jandor, Akindele Visits Badagry, Promises To Make It An Investment Hub

The PDP governorship candidate in Lagos, Azeez ‘Jandor’ Adediran, on Saturday took his campaign to traditional rulers in the Badagry division of the state, seeking their blessings.

At the palace of the Akran of Badagry Kingdom, Oba De Wheno Aholu, the Menu-Toyi 1, Mr Adediran promised that there would be a Coconut Island in the area if elected.

“We are going to have Coconut Island in Badagry just as we have Banana Island,” he said.

The candidate, who hails from Badagry Division, in company of his running mate, Funke Akindele, called for the support of the royal fathers and people in the division, saying their sufferings should be enough.

“I want to congratulate you this time around because ever since the return of democracy, no one considered the Badagry division for the governorship seat in Lagos state. That I got a PDP ticket is predestined by God.

“I was trained in this house, and my fathers and mothers are here today. It is our turn to serve. I have not come to play politics but to seek your blessings.

“You are the fathers of all, and we have come to seek your blessings. We are not at war with anybody, and our government will be for the masses,” he said.

Adediran decried that roads in the division had been in bad conditions, saying he would not be in government and the situation remained the same.

He advised the division to vote for PDP candidates in the national and state elections.

Adediran, while addressing teeming party’s supporters at the palace, said his team had prepared to run a humane government that would prioritise the interest of the masses.

Also commenting, Akindele, a Nollywood superstar, told the traditional rulers that she joined Mr Adediran to give hope to women, children and youths in the state.

She said, “I am promising you that I will do you proud; I will not disappoint you.”

Speaking on behalf of the traditional rulers, the Oniworo of Iworo Kingdom, Oba Oladele Kosoko, said, “Only a child will not know what Badagry division is going through.

“Whoever God has chosen to help our division will get there. We, as fathers, will continue to pray for you.”

He urged the politicians to campaign based on issues and avoid violence.

At the palace are Oba Oyekan Ajose, the Alapa of Apa Kingdom, and Oba Saheed Adamson, the traditional ruler of Ajido Kingdom in Badagry, among others.

The traditional rulers took turns praying for Mr Adediran and Ms Akindele.
