An All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart in Igando-Ikotun, Hon. Jimoh Ajao, says Alimosho continues to wield power at the state and national levels because of its united political structure.
Ajao, who is a former Chairman of the council, made this known during an interactive session with the Chief Press Secretaries to Chairmen of LGA/LCDAs in Alimosho Federal Constituency (Alimosho CPS 6) on Wednesday, November 6.
He stated that the political structure of Alimosho is unique as a result of the ability to speak with one voice.
According to him, this unity of purpose and able leadership of Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola has cemented Alimosho’s place in the scheme of things.
Ajao said, “Alimosho leads, while others follow. The simple reason is that we created a platform that all of us come together and speaks with one voice. We didn’t allow caucus, different interest groups to create division within our ranks. We always speak in once voice.
“We thank God for people like Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who nurtured Alimosho Federal Constituency to the level we are today. In fairness, he doesn’t take unilateral decisions on issues. He always ensures we all meet to discuss issues and reach a collective agreement before execution,” he said.
Ajao advised upcoming politicians that there is more to life beyond the office, which they hold.
“Whoever wishes to become a political office holder should know that we had lives before being office holders; lives during your tenure in office and life after office.
“You must know that the people you left behind before you get to office are the same people you will come back to meet after office,” he stressed.
He also appealed to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to compensate Alimosho with more portfolios in his cabinet.
“Alimosho didn’t fail in delivering during the last and previous elections, one commissioner is sincerely not enough to commiserate Alimosho support,” he said.
Other issues discussed include health and cooperation from chairmen in the area.
