LAGOS: ALL Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos West Senatorial candidate, Solomon Adeola, has decried the violence characterising the run-up to the general elections. He urged his supporters not to involve themselves in such acts.
“I will never involve in or encourage my supporters to carry out campaign of intimidation of voters with violence in any form particularly shooting sporadically or attacking those pasting posters. It is regrettable that one APC supporter has been killed in Agege and another APC woman was attacked with machete in Ayobo-Ipaja area for posting APC candidates posters on her premises, ” he said in Lagos.
Adeola regretted that candidates were using violence to discourage his supporters but said he would continue his campaign based on his track record at the state and federal legislature for the past 12 years as well as his legislative agenda for Lagos West Senatorial District.
Meanwhile, the National Association of Nigerian Students(NANS) LASU, Araromi Youth, Association of Disabled Persons, Oshodi –Isolo as well as Lagos State Association of the Deaf declared their support of Adeola.
Nurudeen Temilola, the President of NANS LASU promised that his association will campaign for him among the over 5 000 students spread across four campuses adding that they were in his office to collect campaign material.
