Obanikoro to declare governorship aspiration on Friday

A former Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana and immediate past Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, is set to officially declare his intention to contest in the Lagos State governorship election on Friday, November 28.

This was made known in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media Strategy, Ohimai Amaize.

Mr. Amaize said, “Senator Obanikoro is ready to unveil his plans of a ‘Greater Lagos’ for the people of Lagos State.

“Senator Obanikoro has answered the call of his people to rescue Lagos State from political and economic bondage and we are very confident that based on his overwhelming goodwill among the people of Lagos, especially the downtrodden masses, as well as his impeccable record in public service, he is the best prepared for the job,” Mr. Amaize said in the statement.

Mr. Obanikoro’s declaration event will be themed “Walk With Me”.

The former Minister resigned his appointment as Minister of State for Defence on October 20 to pursue his gubernatorial ambition under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

    Mr. Babalola, you are a lawyer. You are supposed to know that Faleke is in court, so also is the PDP. As of now, Yayah Bello is the Governor of Kogi State and his constituency includes Ekirin-Ade. Why should the visit of the Governor’s wife lead to destruction of property. Your write-up suggests that you do not recognize Bello as the Governor of Kogi State. But until he is removed by the court, he remains the Governor. Why not keep your gun powder dry until when the court delivers its verdict?
    Faleke represents Ikeja Federal Constituency. Don’t you know that there were indigenes of that area in Lagos State who competed with Faleke, both in the primary and the general election, but the people voted for him.
    Now that you are playing the indigene card, Lagos people should not forget to use that same indigene card to deny Faleke a return to the National Assembly. Faleke can go back to Kogi to test his popularity at that time; come 2019, Faleke can contest to be governor.
