An aspirant to the vacant Lagos East Senatorial District seat, Mr Babatunde Gbadamosi has pledged to drive purposeful legislative agenda that will bring about huge economic prospects for his people if elected in the October 31 election.
Similarly, Gbadamosi claimed that the All Progressives Congress, APC, is a party without sufficient democratic values to bequeath to Nigerians.
Gbadamosi, who is aspiring on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stated this shortly after obtaining his nomination form at the party’s national headquarters, Abuja on Tuesday.
The aspirant, who stormed the PDP national secretariat in company of friends and associates, the bemoaned what he called the poor representation of Lagos East in the past few years.
He pointedly maintained that his mission is to give the district the opportunity to aspire to bigger things.
His words, “APC, as far as Lagos people are concerned, is, to put it politely, an empty party. It brings no value to the people of Lagos state.
“Since they became the party in power at the federal level, they have devalued the lives of Nigerians and the lives of Lagosians.
“As far as Lagosians are concerned, it is time for the APC to park and go. That is what we will be working on as soon as we get to the Senate over the next two or three years”, he said.
The performance of APC across all levels of government, he said, has convinced Nigerians in general and Lagosians in particular that the time has come to do away with the party in preference of the PDP.
According to him, “APC took over at the federal level and across other layers of governments, but it is clear now that they don’t have anything to offer except a squeeze economy. They squeeze people as much as possible.
