The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Gbadamosi has disclosed on Tuesday that he is confident that his party would win the upcoming Lagos East Senatorial District by-election.
Gbadamosi disclosed this to journalists at the PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Abuja just after getting the PDP nomination and expression of interest forms for the senatorial district election.
This follows the passing of the Senator Bayo Oshinowo, who was representing the district at the senate in June. However, the candidate said he is certain that the party would do everything to make sure that it wins the by-election.
“Whatever it takes for the will of the people to prevail is what we will do within all legal boundaries. Since the first republic, it has been a problem of equality representation except for a short four years term that was served by one of our senators from Ikorodu.
“We have taken this opportunity. It is unfortunate that the opportunity has come in a manner that it did. May the soul of the departed rest in peace. We have no choice than to carry on to give our people that are still living the best that we can,” said Gbadamosi.
The candidate said his mission was to make certain that laws negatively affecting people were adjusted, if he wins the election scheduled for October 31. Moreover, he said he intends to provide quality representation for all Nigerians, specifically the people of Lagos.
“That is why I am contesting to give our people the best that we can in all of the five Local Government Areas that constitute Lagos East Senatorial District; that is, Ikorodu, Epe, Ibeju-Leki, Kosofe, Somolu,” added Gbadamosi
