ADEOLA CAUTIONS OPPONENT ON DIRTY POLITICS

The attention of the campaign office of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Lagos West Senatorial District Hon. Solomon Adeola, has been drawn to an ongoing sinister blackmail plot using some plaint online publications to linked him to some alleged “killer squad” by agents of his opponent Mr. Segun Adewale of PDP in a vain attempt to avoid issues and play dirty politics in the face of Hon. Adeola’s unparalleled popularity among the electorate.

Using group photographs of Hon. Adeola with various constituents, the agents of Mr. Adewale falsely identified and attributed crimes to individuals in the pictures and tag same as “killer squad”. The same is then passed onto plaint online publications for publication for sums ranging from $2000 to $5000 in a desperate bid to damage the soaring popularity of Hon. Adeola.

We state that the popularity and love by the people for Hon. Adeola is such that on daily basis different constituents and groups daily troop to his office and one of their numerous take home mementoes is photographs taken with Hon. Adeola with their hand held devices. As a man of the people, Hon Adeola usually oblige all such persons with these take home mementoes and will continue to do so with all the good people of Lagos West Senatorial District rooting for him to be their senator.

We challenge Mr. Adewale and his motley band blackmailers to do the right thing and report any evidence of crime at their disposal on anybody to the relevant authorities for appropriate action instead of playing dirty politics unbefitting of a person aspiring to represent the largest and most cosmopolitan senatorial district in Nigeria.

For the avoidance of doubt Hon. Adeola campaigns has dwelt on issues relevant to the people of Lagos West Senatorial District in the drive for getting elected as their senator. Through drive through campaigns and town hall meetings with relevant stakeholders in the district, Hon. Adeola style is to tell the people his antecedents of 12 years in the Guardian Newspaper, his almost 12 years as a legislator at both state and Federal legislature and his numerous personal projects and constituency projects some of which are easily confirmed from his website www.yayiadeola.ng, his planned replication of his programmes done at Alimosho Federal Constituency where he presently represents and such issues as struggle for a Special status for Lagos and the recognition of created local governments in Lagos State  as well as the issue of ranking in the legislature that will disadvantage Lagos West were they to send a greenhorn to the senate.

Again we challenge Mr. Adewale to let the public know his antecedents in terms of where he is coming from to be a senator representing the largest senatorial district in Nigeria. For free we tell discerning public that this man has no experience in public service and his private sector experience is restricted to his private company. We challenge him to give details of his upbringing which he personally acknowledges on some electronic media to be unsavoury. For us, we have record of his illicit sexual escapade as a youth, his records at Winners Chapel Church and other details that makes him not fit for even the lowliest public office. We challenge him to deny that he personally led an armed attack on Hon. Adeola’s campaign office on January 31, 2015 as reported in at least one national newspaper and other electronic media. We challenge him to dispute the public knowledge that his campaigns are presaged by sporadic firing of gun shots by youth that he personally armed.

In any case we refuse to be drag into the mud of playing dirty politics in place of politics of issues, a situation that restrict us from disclosing the seedy past of Mr. Adewale who wants to seat in the hallowed chamber of Nigeria’s highest legislative body.

For now we urge caution among online publications in doing their duty and ‘earning’ revenue for their blogs as they cannot grow their reach by dishing out falsehood or publishing manipulated photographs with serious allegations that should ordinarily be reported to the Police for appropriate investigations and action.

…Lauds Senator Tinubu’s Vision To Lift Widows Out Of Poverty

 

Wife of Lagos State Governor, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu on Friday called for special care for downtrodden and vulnerable persons in the society especially the widows, with the view to lift them out of poverty and make them live comfortable lives.

Speaking at the commissioning of Patience Home, a facility built to address the plight of widows by New Era Foundation established by Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Chief (Mrs) Oluremi Tinubu, Dr Sanwo-Olu said it was important for people to show love to the needy in society and help them to overcome their challenges.

According to Dr. Sanwo-Olu, “We need to love our neighbours as ourselves. There are quite a number of vulnerable and downtrodden in society. I used to be a Medical Doctor and I am still one and so I have seen a lot of people come to the hospital and as small as N200, N500, they can’t even afford to pay for the cards.

“Women, widows, physically challenged, mentally challenged to come to the hospital without relations and people to help them out. I have also been to some orphanages and I found out that there are people out there that have a calling.

“Each and every one of us has a calling and we pray as much as possible that we don’t miss our calling. By the time we are finding ourselves in particular positions, I pray that we will continue to be a vessel of honour, a vessel of blessings to our people out there. The bottom line is that we need to reach out and help the needy in the society.”

Besides, Dr. Sanwo-Olu commended Senator Tinubu for taking it upon herself to cater to the plight of the widows, just as she urged people to emulate her and try as much as possible to be a solution to the challenges confronting others.

“We need to do three things about positioning to be a solution. We must find something to offer and we must love each other. I want to commend our dear Senator, Chief Mrs. Oluremi Tinubu for the vision that she has; for building upon the vision; for not giving up; for being a solution to the various widows out there; for finding something to offer and for not being selfish by keeping all the money to herself.

“We are grateful that we have someone like her in our midst who is always finding something to offer to the people. We are very happy to have her in Lagos State. We thank you for the vision, thank you for keeping the vision, thank you for believing in the vision to take care of our windows,” she said.

Earlier, Senator Tinubu said it was gratifying that her vision to cater to the plight of the widows, especially the childless ones, had become a reality with the formal unveiling of Patience Home.

She said the facility, which would be administered in partnership with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Throne of Grace Parish, Region 1, would offer temporary accommodation to childless widows for a period of six to 12 months during which they would learn various vocations including fashion designing and dressmaking, catering and hotel management, hairdressing and cosmetology, hats, beads and craft making, among others.

She also said in furtherance of her passion to take care of widows, 1430 widows have so far been empowered through her Constituency Project tagged “Widows Economic Empowerment Scheme”, while the widows of Patience Home would be trained at the Skills Acquisition Centre of Lagos State Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.
