Agbaje blasts Ambode over traffic congestion in Lagos, offers solution

The campaign structure of Mr. Jimi Agbaje, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Candidate for Lagos State, has appointed a former lieutenant of the Late Engineer Funso Williams to oversee operations as its Director of Organisation.

The position is familiar terrain for Osikoya Adeleke, who in 2011 was elected the Organising Secretary for Lagos PDP.

Announcing the appointment in a press statement at the weekend, Agbaje’s Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Felix Oboagwina, credited the new Director with contributing immensely to the successful mileage Lagos PDP recorded in the 2015 elections.

Adeleke was part of the think-tank of the Late Engineer Funso Williams, former PDP governorship aspirant assassinated in Lagos in 2006.

He first joined Williams’ team when the former Works’ Commissioner ran for the Lagos State governorship under the defunct United National Congress Party (UNCP) and thereafter the Alliance for Democracy (AD).

Adeleke, with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Sociology from the Lagos State University (LASU), hailed from Agbowa Ikosi in Epe Local Government of the state, according to the statement.

An avid political player whose active participation began on campus, he won election as a Parliamentarian in the students’ union government to represent the Department of Sociology and the Faculty of Social Sciences through his four years in LASU.

He also served as the Secretary to the Jonathan/Sambo Campaign Council for the 2011 presidential election won by President Goodluck Jonathan.

Adeleke equally worked as Personal Assistant to the Minister for Works and Housing, Chief Femi Anibaba, between 2004 and 2007.

From 2013 to 2015, he was Technical Assistant to Deputy Chairman of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P), Chief Tanwa Olusi.

In addition, the PDP national leadership had variously appointed Adeleke to serve on several committees, some of which he chaired.

His interest in politics reportedly dated back to his sojourn with his Aunt, the Late Alhaja Adetutu Odunsi, former Iyaloja General and market leader in Lagos State.

.For a better society.

EMMANUEL CLEMENT

What can you say about the present state of Nigeria?

Nigeria! This situation is terrible, people are suffering, dying, and those who God has blessed should extend their hands to the needy, though the economy would so be to make this country (Nigeria) a better place.  The Nation is greedy, the nation is at the state of emergency what we need now is God’s mercy as quickly as possible, I say state of emergency because  now what we are hearing is that  we are still going to experience another recession . The governor of central bank  said that is like we are entering into recession again so that‘s why we don’t need to blame anyone, not even Buhari or APC, we are to fight it spiritually, it is a spiritual welfare. Once God is absent, things go wrong; we must call upon God to salvage us because the arms of the flesh will fail us.
