Yemi Osinbajo and some prominent All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftains in Lagos State on Friday visited the Alimosho area of the state in continuation of the party’s house-to-house campaign.
APC Chieftains that accompanied the VP included the immediate past governor of Osun, Rauf Aregbesola, Governor Akinwumi Ambode of Lagos State, Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Solomon Adeola (Lagos West) and APC Governorship Candidates for Lagos, Babafemi Sanwo-Olu.
Alimosho is the most populated area of Lagos, comprising Ijegun, Ikotun, Idimu, Egbeda, Ipaja and Ayobo, among others.
NAN also reports that traffic was at standstill as residents in the various areas visited by the VP trouped out to join the interactive session.
Speaking to the crowd at Greenland Stadium in Abesan Estate, Ipaja, Mr Osinbajo urged the APC members to work tirelessly for President Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates’ victory in the forthcoming elections.
He said Alimosho was very crucial to the APC as it is the local government area with the largest voting population in the state.
“There are votes in Alimosho. We should all go out and vote on Feb. 16 for Buhari. We are expecting large votes from Alimosho, which has the largest voting population,” he said.
Osinbajo also ceased the opportunity of being in the stadium to show off his football skill as he kicked a football right pass a goalkeeper into the goal net.
