Tokunbo Abiru, a former Commissioner for Finance in Lagos State and the All Progressive Congress (APC) flagbearer in the forth-coming Lagos State east Senatorial bye-election has taken his campaign to Ikorodu town.
Abiru who’s trying to replace the late Senator Bayo Osinowo, who represented Lagos East senatorial district until his death met with some stakeholders in Ikorodu and other adjoining towns.
Just this morning, the ex-MD of Polaris Bank took to his twitter handle to thank the people of Ikorodu whilst taking them down the memory lane.
Abiru posted this on his Twitter handle
“Ikorodu: What a Colourful Day. It was a gracious and colourful homecoming in Ikorodu today. I am sincerely overwhelmed with the unity of purpose and I accept with all sense of humility the ”unifier” toga placed on my shoulder.
“The mandate before us is to lead the pack by setting an enviable stand with our votes come October 31, 2020.
“Since the time of Senators Justice M.A.O Abiru (RIP), Jimoh Ogidan (RIP), Anthony Adefuye, Adeseye Ogunlewe, Olorunnimbe Mamora, Gbenga Ashafa and Adebayo Osinowo (RIP), Ikorodu and indeed Lagos East have always voted for the progressive party.
“In the coming bye-election, I will be counting on our tradition of progressive forthrightness to bring to bear my plans, if by God’s grace I am elected as a Senator.
“I shall focus on legislations that support SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) 1, 3, 4 and 8, which are Eradication of Poverty, Good Health and Wellbeing, Quality Education and Decent Work and Economic Growth. These are the areas that I will work really work hard on for the good people of Lagos East using the combination of my Private and Public Sector experiences and network.
“I implore us to not only come out massively to vote as a people but to canvass and encourage others to do so.
“I thank everyone, who took out time to join us at Ikorodu Town Hall today. I pray we all have a reason to glorify God at the end of the campaign. Amen. #TokunboAbiru4Senate.”
