2019: APC candidates, Dawodu, Sokunle seek community support

By Edith Igbokwe

The candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Federal House of Representatives and State House of Assembly, Dr. Bashiru Dawodu and Hon. Olushola Hakeem Sokunle both representing Oshodi-Isolo constituency I, have sought Community Development Committee (CDC) support for their victory at the polls.

They made visitation to the CDC last week for the support and to consolidate their campaign promises, while enlightening the electorate to be conscious of their index finger while voting in order to avoid nullification of their votes.

The duo promised to work collectively to deliver the dividends of democracy which they listed to include primary health centres and electronic libraries refurbishment, skills acquisition and empowerment programmes, job opportunities, just a few, with assurance of good representations at their different levels of government if elected.


The visit featured the assistant Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mrs Esther Okorie who enlightened electorate to vote with index finger as most people thumbs are very large and could go beyond space provided which might render the vote void.

She also warned against folding ballot papers into two after casting to avoid ink reflections on other spaces provided, rather she recommended rolling and flattening of the paper before casting into the box.

Together, the two candidates requested to know the expectations of the people from both federal and state government so they could be able to represent them well.

Responding, the CDC members charged them to live up to their expectations, do the needful and fulfil their campaign promises towards the development of the community and not to seek the office for personal benefits.

In agreement, the two assured the community of their very best of commitment to the development of Oshodi-Isolo constituency I.
