Lagos guber: Alimosho Ohanaeze Ndigbo backs Jandor, says he’s best

The Alimosho, Lagos branch of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has backed the Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran aka Jandor, saying that he is the only credible candidate for the coveted office.

According to the group, which gathered for the endorsement at Acquarium Hotel, 31/33, Road Gowon Estate, Lagos on Wednesday March 8, 2023, Jandor is the only candidate who would protect the interest of the South Easterners as the Governor of the state.

Nwokoro stated at the event, which was attended by members of the group from Alimosho Local Government and five Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the area, that the government of Jandor would be for everybody, adding that it was time to allow the youths to take over governance in the country.

“I want you all to go out during the Governorship Election and vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Jandor so that he can properly fix the state unlike what we are experiencing now.

“His government would be for everybody, he would not discriminate against our people. I had a meeting with him few days ago and I was impressed with what we discussed. We should not allow this opportunity to slip us by.

“Jandor is a good man, he knows what to do at the right time. He is a successful businessman and he knows how to manage people. He would do his best for the state and I believe that we should give him a chance,” he said.

Also speaking, the Chairman of Alimosho Branch of Motor Dealers Association and a member of the group, Mr. Okoli Donatus Osita said that the Igbos have nothing to fear during the election, and urged them not to fell intimidated by any group.

Osita stated that the Igbos know who to vote for and that Jandor is the right person for the state, but that Ohaneze Ndigbo was not actually formed for politics.

“We know how politics is and we know Jandor. Many political parties are eyeing our support, but we prefer Jandor of the PDP.

“We have seen politicians with empty promises, but we want to give Jandor a chance, we will support him and allow a young man like him to rule Lagos,” he said.

Earlier in his speech, the Co-ordinator of the South Easterners in the Lagos4Lagos Movement and a member of the Jandor Campaign team, Dr. Jonathan Nnaji, who represented Jandor at the event, said that the PDP candidate is like iron meeting iron for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

Nnaji stressed that Jandor is a smart guy
that cannot be defeated by other parties, adding that he is a man with much ideas on how to make Lagos State better.

“If Jandor wins the election, the era of closure of markets anyhow will go and there will be no more discriminations. Those who voted for the Labour Party in the February 25, 2023 Presidential Election are PDP voters.

“Peter Obi’s election is gone, we should now look at the personality involved. Jandor has an NGO that has supported over120 Igbo men and women. He is 45 years old and he has repeatedly said that nobody can control him,” he said.

He said further that Jandor has promised to turn the area boys in the state to good boys as they would be used as traffic officers in their various locations.

According to him, Jandor also plans to make use of the various park chairmen of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) to secure their locations as he would let them know that they would be arrested and dealt with if there is any case of stealing in their areas.

While urging the members of the group to vote for Jandor, he apologised to them that he could not make the event as he said that he was attending to some other stakeholders in his office.

Other leaders of the group at the meeting were the Chairman of Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA Branch, Chief Omemma Onuoha, Chairman of Alimosho LG Branch, Chief Linus Nwaogu, Chairman of Ipaja Ayobo LCDA Branch, Prince Sunday Atiah, Chairman of Egbe Idimu LCDA Branch, Chief Chidi Benson and that of Ikotun-Igando Branch, Mr. Okoli Donatus.
