One of the aspirants to the chairmanship seat of Ijaiye/Ojokoro local council development area, Ojokoro, Lagos, Prince Demola Adunola of Dansaky fame has consolidated on his political ambition by embarking on charity within the community. ENCOMIUM Weekly had a chat with the vibrant entrepreneur on this when we cornered him at an event on Friday, January 22, 2016, in Ojokoro, Lagos.
He’s however, optimistic of winning the election any time it holds as he’s sure of the support of Almighty Allah.
It’s like things have started taking shape concerning your political ambition, what’s the development now?
We’re yet to get a guideline from our party, All Progressives Party (APC). But as time goes on, the whole thing will be unfolded and campaign will kick off in a bigger way. All what you’re seeing now are preliminary activities to the campaign proper. It’s when the campaign starts fully that we will be able to tell our people what we’re going to offer them.
You talked about youth empowerment programme the other time we had a chat with you, have you started something on that as part of your awareness campaign?
Yes, we have been doing that. And by the grace of God, we’re having another one soon. That’s the presentation of gifts to at least 100 widows from Ojokoro community. Also, there is football competition going on in the community where we’re giving gifts to the winners of the competition.
We’re also having free medical test for the people of Ojokoro and treatment of minor diseases will be taken care of. We’re also trying to pack gifts for all the 11 primary schools in Ojokoro. So, all these are to be put in place as part of what we have for the people of Ojokoro Local Council Development Area.
Can we now say, with all these, you have flagged off your campaign for the chairmanship seat of Ojokoro Local Council Development Area?
Yes, literarily, the campaign has been flagged off but the official flag off will hold soon. Now, everybody in the whole of Ojokoro is aware that I am going for the seat and Insha Allah, I will emerge the chairman of Ojokoro Local Council Development Area any time the election holds.
But now, the date for the election has not been fixed…
Yes, it has not been fixed. We’re still waiting for that. But anytime the party comes up with the guideline, Almighty Allah will see us through.
