According to report reaching oyogist.com, Tokunbo Mukhail Abiru, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Saturday’s Lagos East election, has stated that the party cannot afford to fail the electorate.
Abiru said this in his victory speech on Sunday after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared him winner of the poll.
The former Managing Director of Polaris Bank defeated Babatunde Gbadamosi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Abiru said, “Now that we have secured this Senatorial mandate; we cannot afford to fail our people.
“We cannot afford to fail those who voted for us; those who chose not to vote for us for whatever reasons and those who did not vote at all. We cannot afford to betray the invaluable trust our people reposed in us as a political party and as their representatives in government.
“Now is the time to translate all the promises we made into positive and tangible outcomes our people are expecting us to bring about. Now is the time to take our people from the realm of expectations to the limelight of fulfillment.”
