I'll Continue To Struggle For Regnition Of 37 LGAs Of Lagos-Adeola



The All Progressives Congress(APC) Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola aka Yayi has pledged to continue the struggle for the recognition of the 37 LGAs created in Lagos State and work for the national interest in the 9th Senate.

Speaking at an inauguration dinner organized to celebrate his second term in the Senate shortly after he seconded the motion for Senator Ahmad Lawan’s Senate Presidency and stood in as the agent of Lawan in the tensioned soaked election, Senator Adeola stated that while he did his best to represent his people in the 8th Senate in spite of the leadership challenges of that session, the coast is now clear for him to continue effective representation and putting issues of his constituents’ welfare and interest of Nigeria in the front burner of the 9th Senate.  


The senator representing Lagos West, the largest senatorial district in Nigeria in terms of population, added that  he would also continue the agitation for a “special status” and funding for Lagos State as the former Federal Capital Territory and economic capital of Nigeria, according to a release by Chief Kayode Odunaro, media aide to the Senator.

“I once again restate my resolve to represent you and not represent myself in the Senate. I state clearly that I will continue with all my personal projects like public toilets, boreholes and Transformers for my constituents in addition to constituency projects I am able to attract. I hereby restate my legislative agenda to include the continuation of the struggle to get constitutional recognition for our legally and constitutionally created 37 Local Government Councils; continue the agitation for a “special status” and funding for Lagos State as the former Federal Capital Territory and economic capital of Nigeria and pursuit of a new Revenue Allocation Formula that gives more funds to states and local government councils. I have also committed myself to Media Welfare Bill passage as well as support for any water provision related bills in the 9thSenate,” he stated.

 Senator Adeola said that as the nation move to “Next Level” administration, his can still count on him to defend democracy and its institutions from any dictatorial tendencies and work in tandem with the programmes of our party, APC and administration of President Mohamadu Buhari.

Among the dignitaries that attended the dinner were Cardinal James Odumbaku and Pa Tajudeen Olusi both members of the Lagos State Governor’s Advisory Council(GAC), HRM Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, the Olu of Ilaro and Paramount Ruler of Yewaland, Chief(Mrs) Kemi Nelson, APC National Women Leader (South West), Alhaji Tunde Balogun, APC Chairman, Lagos State, Engr.
