An aspirant for the Lagos State House of Assembly Seat under the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr. Sewanu Wusu Ejalonibu has said Badagry can be made great and at par with other constituencies in Lagos State particularly as it is the cradle of civilization in Nigeria.
Ejalonibu stated this during the Wusu Ismaila Sewanu Ejalonibu Campaign Organization (WISECO) Ward Executives inauguration in pursuit of his aspiration, on Thursday 27th January 2022 at Huwanji Apartment, Badagry, Lagos State.
The aspirant when speaking appreciated the political leaders from the Wards and others who were present at the event, stating that together, the narrative about Badagry would be changed for better.
“I want to appreciate Allah for such a day. When Badagry calls for my attention, I think why is my attention been called to this? But sometimes, I feel we need to work together to make Badagry great again.
“What we intend doing is to make changes in governance. Our politics is to revamp Badagry. We stand on seven point agenda which cut across education, employment for the youth, health; particularly to upgrade Badagry General Hospital to a standard to serve people better, empowerment for women which is about to start among others”. He said.
Ejalonibu while speaking on the statistics of police recruitment exercise stated that 2,000 slots was given to Lagos State last year, however, only 300 registered and among this number, only 10 were from Badagry, adding that for this reason, the closing date has been extended to 10th February for Lagos and especially Badagry’s sake to give room for more people from the area to register.
He therefore implored Badagrians to seize the opportunity to register and submit their registration list to his house directly or to the Ward Excos for follow up at no cost. He added that it will be a thing of joy for him to see at least five persons recruited from each ward.
“Any child above 18years who is interested in joing the Nigeria Police Force should register and submit their slip to Ejalonibu House or to any WISECO coordinator. If you refuse to join the force, other tribes will be brought to your community to police over you. Don’t be afraid of posting, we are practicing community policing now; you will be posted to where you applied from. Part of our agenda is to have at least five people from each ward to join police force this year”. He stressed.
