Ikorodu Constituency 2 leading Aspirant, Hon. Nurudeen Solaja-Saka, on Tuesday visited His Royal Majesty, Oba (Barr.) AbdulSemiu Orimadegun Kasali, Adeboruwa of Igbogbo Kingdom, and the entire members of Adeboruwa-in -Council, to seek for Royal blessings ahead of the All Progressives Congress primaries.
Solaja said the visit was to solicit the support of community leaders ahead of the party’s primary election. Also to get royal blessings and to inform the Igbogbo monarch of his ambition to contest the 2023 House of Assembly Seat.
Meanwhile, a former SSG and member of Governance Advisory Council, (GAC) Asiwaju Olorunfunmi Basorun, thank the Adeboruwa-in -Council for the warm reception, adding that the choice of Hon. Solaja, who has the Apex party Leaders’ backing, is the best presently in the interest of Ikorodu constituency 2’s progress and uninterrupted development.
Emphasizing on reasons for supporting the incumbent for third term, Basorun disclosed that the trend and dynamic of the society have shown that we should review the process in Ikorodu Constituency 2.
“My first reason was because we have decided at the GAC and State Party Leaders’ meetings that anyone willing to go many times, should go and face the Party delegates and if they reject him, that means the person is not popular. We should not prevent anybody.
“Kabiyesi, the second reason is that, Ikorodu Constituency 2 needs recognition, we need to get one of the seven principal positions after 23years. We want Solaja to be a Principal Officer, to enhance development.
“And thirdly, some Alleged that Solaja has not performed. But I am aware that he has performed and I can confirm that,” Basorun explained.
He warned people about the spreading of fake news against the Royal fathers and Party leaders in Ikorodu Constituency 2, of endorsing Abiodun Moshood Aro, AMA, as the Constituency 2 choice, urging all to disregard such news, adding that it’s not only fraud but also an insult to the traditional institution.
“We are here before the Kabiyesi, not to seek for an endorsement but to thank him for being supportive and standing by us always,” Basorun added.
In his royal remarks, the Igbogbo Monarch, Oba Kasali, wished Solaja and the entire APC members that visited him well and prayed for Solaja to be successful in his political aspirations, saying the traditional institutions were apolitical.
Solaja, in company of the Chairman, Imota LCDA, and other party Leaders had earlier visited the Ranodu of Imota, HRM Oba Mudashiru Ajibade Bakare Agoro, on Monday, where the King showered his royal blessings on him.
