FASHOLA WOOS HAUSA COMMUNITY
The Lagos State governor and Action Congress of Nigeria gubernatorial candidate, (ACN), Mr. Babatunde Fashola and the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) governorship candidate, Dr Ade Dosunmu intensified their campaign for the April 16 governorship election at the weekend, with both men making frantic efforts to win heart of Lagosians.
While the governor in his bid to woo a cross section of the Hausa community in the state promised to create an enabling atmosphere to do their business, Dosunmu said he would dismantle all the tollgates along Lekki Expressway if he becomes governor and provide basic social amenities for the people of Etin-osa local government area.
Addressing a rally by the Hausa community, which converged on the CMD Centre in Shangisha, Lagos, under the aegis of the Arewa Foodstuff, Rams and Cattle Dealers Association, Arewa United Political Forum, and National Arewa Youth Organization (NAYO), Fashola said it is only the ACN that has solutions to all the problems plaguing the people in the state.
The spokesman of NAYO, Mr. Hussein Suleiman said the rally was put to get to intimate the Lagos State government on the problem of illegal arrest and inhuman treatment of their people by official of Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI) amongst other demands. The governor said they should not be deceived by any promise by the PDP to give them better life in the state.
He urged the people to ensure to vote en-mass for the ACN in all the elective positions at stake in next month's election, stating that they would be better off for it.
On his part, Dosunmu who spoke at a campaign rally in Etinosa local government area, said apart from dismantling the toll gates in Lekki he would end 'the arbitrariness of LASTMA chasing people to the point of death, the lawlessness of KAI, the 25% of IGR to some tax companies and we will take government from a greedy few to the greater majority of the people.'
Besides, the PDP candidate also promised to build a General Hospital for the people of the area if he becomes governor.
