Battle for APC ticket for Ikorodu Constituency I gets hotter as Majek joins race

The tussle for the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party ticket to represent the Ikorodu Constituency I in the Lagos State House of Assembly in the forthcoming 2019 general elections has taken another dimension as a new entrant has joined the race.

The new entrant into the race is an economist and accountant, Mr. Ibrahim Olayinka Majekodunmi after he declared his intention to vie for the Ikorodu Constituency I seat on the platform of the APC.

During his declaration which had stakeholders and other party faithful in attendance in Ikorodu community, Majek, as he is fondly referred among his loyalists, said his priorities at the Assembly include the dilapidated Ikorodu-Shagamu road, facilitation of infrastructural facilities, agricultural development initiative, and support for artisans, market women and men.

He added that educational support, empowerment for widows and aged, entrepreneurship initiative and health care initiative will form his initiatives for his constituents if elected as their representative.

Majekodunmi equally promised effective lawmaking and lobbying that would address many challenges confronting the people of his constituency and state in general.

The tussle for the APC ticket to represent Ikorodu Constituency I in the Assembly is, however, getting tougher as other bigwigs such as Majority Leader of the House, Hon. SOB Agunbiade who is seeking a fourth term in office and Prince Gafaar Oluwatoyin Bolowotan had earlier declared their interests.

The politicians have continued to seek the support of party leaders and other influential figures in a bid to aid their ambition towards winning the trust and votes of their constituents to represent in the forthcoming general elections.
