On the 5th of November 2022, Hon Babajimi Benson MHR, representing Ikorodu Federal Constituency, held a consultative forum with over 900 ward excos of the All Progressives Congress (APC) across the Ikorodu Division.
Organised to solicit a communal drive to deliver a landslide victory for APC candidates in Ikorodu, Lagos State and Nigeria, the forum reflected consensus and strength from the numerous wards present at the constituency expanse of the federal legislator.
In cap, Jimi Benson announced that he asked the party’s stakeholders to convene to notify them of his flag-off campaign actions.
The Chairman of the House of Reps Committee on Defence officially got the green light from his entire constituents ahead of the conventional flag-off of his campaign.
From the jump, Hon Tijani Olasunkanmi, APC divisional chairman, instructed the exco members to ensure they work for a clear victory for the party in the forthcoming elections.
Imploring excos to ensure they procure their PVC, Hon Tijiani advised the excos to ensure they vote before they are qualified to mobilize other party members for the election.
Highlights of the event saw the party chieftain announcing to the team leaders that the party have earned some decampees that left the party to PDP and implored them to welcome the returnees in their various wards and LGAs.
A favourable moment for the party arose with the Secretary of the Arewa community disclosing that her members are fully registered APC partners, adding that they’ve collected their PVC.
Alhaji Zachy Idris, Arewa APC community chairman, who speaks Yoruba fluently, asserted that the Ikorodu-based northern community is dedicated to providing huge votes for APC in the 2023 elections.
Addressing the massive crowd, emphasising that a prosperous movement attracts robust cooperation with party stakeholders, JB, as he’s fondly called, proclaimed that Ikorodu, standing as the third largest city in Nigeria should generate the biggest votes for the party in the looming elections for all the party’s flag-bearers.
Exhorting the excos, JB continued, “We crave the votes and you are the grassroots supervisors”.
“Let the target votes for our party’s presidential candidate and all other prospects in the 2023 general election be achieved”.
Charging party members and stakeholders to work for the party’s triumph, JB noted that more dividends of democracy will be provided to the populace if victory is attained.
In closing, Jimi Benson convinced the party leaders that their interests would be well catered for by him and other party candidates to guarantee they produce to target.
