The members of a youth organisation in Kosofe, Active Kosofe Network, has tipped Hon. Samuel Olanrewaju Adebayo to effectively fill lawmaking role of Kosofe Constituency II in the Lagos House of Assembly following the vacuum created by the demise of the respectable leader, Hon. Tunde Buraimoh.
BreezeReporters gathered from sources within the All Progressives Congress, that Adebayo is being favoured and more positioned for the role.
Hon. Adebayo had earlier vied for the same ticket prior to the 2019 general elections at the primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) but came second to the late Hon. Buraimoh.
According to statement obtained by BreezeReporters, and signed by Kosofe Active Network Coordinator, Musili Isiaka and Secretary, Zainab Muh’d Awwal, the youth group believes Adebayo has the social pedigree to represent the concerns and interests of the Kosofe Constituency II residents and Lagosians having initiated and provided many empowerment and succour programmes in the area of health and education in Kosofe local government area.
Hon. Adebayo who is the Co-founder and President of the Succour for Health and Education Foundation (SHEF), has provided free educational materials, Medical Insurance plans and outreaches and also Working tools for empowerment of the Kosofe indigents since 2017. He was also at the forefront in providing food reliefs and palliatives packages to Kosofe residents during COVID-19 pandemics.
”Hon. Samuel has always been so close to the indigents in the Kosofe constituent during the trying times and festive periods by putting smiles on their faces with various provisions and supports. He also took keen interest to ensure women and youths get most larger portion of his largesse, the group said.
‘While honouring and appreciating the contributions of the late lawmaker, the Active Kosofe Network wishes to use the medium to call on Hon. Samuel Olanrewaju Adebayo to mount the bidding horse to fly the flag of the progressive party to represent the interests and concerns of the Kosofe II constituents at the Lagos State House of Assembly.
