Badagry To Produce Next Lagos Governor

The people of Badagry have declared that it’s time for the kingdom to produce the governor of Lagos. The people stated this position at a town hall meeting held in honour of Abayomi Sutton, whom they have endorsed Sutton as their candidate as next governor of the state.

According to them, Badagry kingdom had been sidelined long enough, based on wrong insinuation of poor education, but they insisted that Badagry could now boast of an indigene that is well read, with lots of experience and exposure. This was said at a town hall meeting held in honour of Abayomi Sewanu Sutton. The people of Badagry, endorsed Sutton as their candidate as next governor of Lagos.

The General of Badagry Kingdom, Comfort Akeke, appealed to all indigenes of Badagry and Lagos to support Sutton on his mission to continue with the developmental projects in the state.

Kiki Whenu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) noted that Sutton’s decision to contest the position was a good omen for the kingdom, while appealing to the leaders of various parties and groups to do away with their sentiments and differences and embrace Sutton as the sole candidate for the seat in 2015.

Some members of Lagos State House of Assembly (LAHA) have cautioned the Federal Government over the planned negotiation with the Boko-Haram sect over the release of abducted schoolgirls. Newsmen report that the Federal Government has been under increasing pressure to negotiate with Boko-Haram insurgents to regain the custody of the abducted school girls. The lawmakers, who spoke with news reporters on Tuesday, advised the Federal Government to take caution in dealing with the insurgents.

Dayo Fafunmi, the Chairman, Public Account (Local) Committe, advised the government to be careful in accepting the offer of the insurgents to release the students. Omowunmi Edet, the Chairman, House Committee on Establishment and Training, also said that government should not consider negotiating the innocent school girls for the release of criminals.
