Female-dominated group in Ijede LCDA, Great Height, has openly declared their support for the All Progressive Congress (APC) party in Ikorodu division, Lagos State and Nigeria in general.
A political backing, made known by the faction’s founder, Chief Princess Ezuma Scholastica, popularly dubbed Ada-Igbo gburugburu at her pre-election stakeholder’s meeting.
Held on the 6th of February 2023 in Igbodu axis of Ijede, the group converged with her members, informing them to ready their PVC towards the forthcoming elections.
The discussion brought in stakeholders of the group who are squarely from the constituency 2 regions of Ikorodu i.e Igbogbo Baiyeku LCDA, Imota LCDA and Ijede LCDA.
Without grating messages, the faction founder, Princess Scholastica Ezuma stated that as a woman leader who has been involved with politics for over 35 years, she is always pressured by the sobs of her people to offer solutions to their difficulties.
According to Princess Ezuma, election day will present itself like an exam fever for only those who are not certain about their candidate of choice, putting in that for her group, it’s APC from top to bottom.
Explaining further, she said, “When I contested some years ago, it was an indigene of Ikorodu that sponsored me, and now it’s time for me to give my entire base behind capable candidates in Ikorodu, and the All Progressive Congress (APC) party is my choice”.
“We understand how the system works and our choice is not laid based on sharing rice and collecting money, but on choosing adequate leadership that will improve the lives of our members”.
“For Lagos State House of Assembly in Ikorodu constituency 2, we’re throwing all our support behind APC’s Hon. Abiodun Moshood Aro (AMA), because according to his catchphrase, if you see AMA? you’ll smile, and indeed we want our people to smile”.
Not lunging tiers, Princess Ezuma also vowed the group’s support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Senator Adetokunbo Mukahil Abiru, representing the Lagos East senatorial district and Hon. Babajimi Benson MHR, representing Ikorodu federal constituency.
She urged members to go back home and gather their followers to get ready for election day, asserting that Ikorodu must not grieve post-election.
Also addressing members, Elder Eze Ibe, another leader in the group said that presently, Nigeria is like a church that is about to witness crossover, noting that the choice of Princess Ezuma will never lead the group astray.
He continued, “If they’re bad then vote them out, but if they’re good re-elect them”.
“The funny truth is, when you get to that ballot box, only you and God knows who you’ll vote for”.
“So, be ready to exercise your civic duty for APC on election day and vote with your conscience”.
He further advised that a lot of other party candidates will be listed on the ballot papers, and voters are to check precisely for their chosen APC candidate on the sheet before voting.
“If we have decided to support all flag-bearing candidates of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as declared by Princess Ezuma, then members should not be afraid or intimidated based on our recommendation” He concluded.
The group finished up the dialogue, pitching another meeting before the election with plans to host the All Progressive Congress (APC) party candidates in Ikorodu.
Welfare packages were distributed to all members in attendance at the meeting.
