I Stand as a Legislative Hope for Somolu if Elected in Lagos State House of Assembly
– Hon. Abiodun Orekoya

 


A legislative hopeful for the Lagos State House of Assembly, Somolu Constituency One on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon Abiodun Orekoya, has said that fighting insecurity will form the basis of his legislative functions when he is elected in the Lagos State House of Assembly.

 

The Somolu freeborn, who made this remarks at the Agunbiade Primary School while declaring his ambition to represent the constituency in the assembly, stated as a matter of fact that he would fight insecurity with the most appropriate weapon, which is education.

 

Speaking before the mammoth crowd that came out to cheer him on, Orekoya insisted that free and compulsory education are the yardsticks he would introduce to ensure that every vestige of insecurity is cleared from Somolu as an entity, and Lagos State in general, leading to the much sought after peace in the country.

 


“It is my desire to give the people of Somolu Constituency One thorough representation, and ensure that security is enjoyed as a dividend of democracy. I’ll fight insecurity to a standstill using free and compulsory education, beginning with the primary and secondary levels,” he said

 

He maintained that the free and compulsory education will have a spiraling effect on every facet of the economic and social life of the society as parents will also be relieved of the burden of paying school fees and other sundry educational requirements.

 

 

“My policy of free and compulsory education will relieve parents of the burden of school fees and other sundry issues, and they will save more money for other matters,” Orekoya said.

 

Responding to a question on the menace of touts otherwise known as area boys or agbero, Orekoya insisted that dialoguing with them will be a viable option.

 


“We can’t throw them away. They are one of us. As a result, we will talk to them, and provide an alternative to what they are doing. It is true that they are doing what they doing because they are looking for something to eat. That’s where the importance of free and compulsory education comes in again. If they have requisite education, they will settle for befitting enterprise.”
