The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has welcomed the December 5th, rescheduled date for the postponed Lagos East Senatorial and Kosofe Constituency II bye-elections.
The Lagos State’s APC Publicity Secretary, Seye Oladejo who made this known on Saturday, said with the new date, the party would energise its campaign machinery to ensure victory for APC candidates.
In his words: “We are happy as a party, if not for the set back of the #EndSARS protests that necessitated the postponement, we would have put the bye-elections behind us.
“So, we are happy now that we have a new date.
“We are going to re-energise our campaign machinery to sensitise the people, the party members and the electorate to come out en masse and vote for our respective candidates.
“So, we are quite happy about it and we are very much confident that we will win the elections,” the APC spokesman said.
While calling on INEC to intensify voters’ education within the State, Mr. Oladejo also urged the electoral umpire to be neutral and ensure everything necessary is put in place for a free, fair and credible elections with the collaboration of all stakeholders and security agencies.
He also called on Lagosians to come out en masse to exercise their franchise so that they can elect the senator of their choice for Lagos East Senatorial District and Kosofe State Constituency II Lagos House of Assembly election.
