A Lagos base support group known as IYA YI TO LEKO MOVEMENT has thrown its weight behind Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi (BOG), candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the coming Lagos East by-election.
Gbadamosi was declared winner of the PDP primaries in a keenly contested election, having polled 525 votes to defeat his closest rival, Fafowora who polled 59.
In a statement signed by IYA YI TO LEKO MOVEMENT’s Director of Operations, Segun Popoola, noted that the movement pledged to work hard and ensure victory for BOG and the PDP.
The statement added further that, ‘it is high time we made some changes in Lagos. We no longer want a Lagos where only one person has been calling the shots since 1999 till date.
