THE Executive Chairman of Igbogbo/Baiyeku Local Council Development in Ikorodu area of Lagos State, Olusesan Daini, on Wednesday, says he will use his office to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party at the LCDA level.
In a statement made available to Citizens Compass, he appreciated the leaders of All Progressives Congress (APC), for the confidence reposed in him to emerge as the sole Chairmanship candidate during the party primaries elections held on Saturday, May 29, 21.
Daini promises that with the mandate, he will mend fences and rebuild bridges among the aggrieved party members.
The statement reads:
“Party Primaries: No Victor, No Vanquished!*
“In the past few weeks, we had been saddled with the enormous responsibility of choosing flagbearers of our great party for the forthcoming local government elections in the state.
“It was daunting tasks for many of us owing to the caliber and our intrinsic relationships with contending aspirants and the need to choose one over the other had been very understandably unsettling for us but the job must be done, either way.
“If this party primary has thought us one lesson, it is that our local council and our party has so many eminently qualified aspirants jostling to become flagbearers of our party.
“We are indeed blessed to have this lot, showing interest in our party politics. None of the aspirants was a pushover; we are bigger and better than we thought.
“While select few have emerged as flagbearers of our great party, the party’s flag is big enough for all of us to carry together to face the elections head-on, win it to usher in more development to our local council, record more successes and create remarkable history together.
“It is in the light of the above that I want to specially thank the Apex Leaders of Igbogbo Baiyeku LCDA and Ikorodu Division, all bridge builders, wall menders that worked tirelessly to make resolution a possibility and more specifically for the renewed trust reposed in me as the Chairmanship Candidate of our great party for a second term.
“Your compromising and reconciliatory efforts have paid off and our LCDA, Ikorodu Division and Lagos State will be better for it.
“Remember, we are better today than when we started four years ago and I want to enjoin you to continue to work together with us as an indivisible entity with great opportunity to win the forthcoming election and further develop our LCDA better than today in months to come.
“I subscribe to the school of thought that politics ends where governance starts, and today, I am back to do the work you have elected me to do as your servant leader with renewed vigour.
“We shall continue to deliver on the mandate while we further reconcile the aggrieved, mend the walls, rebuild bridges and mobilize the electorates to vote for us in the election proper.
“We are indeed an undefeatable team with unity of purpose. No victor, no vanquished!
Thank you and God bless you!
