In a bid to achieve greatness in Lagos East senatorial district, Ajao Onalapo Afeez Adetola, a Senatorial aspirant of All Progressive Congress (APC), has resolved to support and work together with the incumbent Sen. Gbenga Ashafa who is vying for third term in the forthcoming elections to continue his good works.
This recent development is coming just as the much anticipated APC primaries draw closer in few days.
“Having witnessed the great works Sen. Ashafa has done and visited over 96 projects undertaken by him, It became so glaring to Lagos people that supporting someone who has the interest of the people of Lagos is the right thing to do.
“Therefore, I declare my readiness to support him in his bid to return to the hallowed chambers of the Nigerian senate, not just to continue his good works but to ensure improved representation for the Lagos East and Nigeria as a nation,” Onalapo said during a press briefing.

“I thank you all for your time and efforts on our journey, even as I look forward to your continual support in this crucial decision .”
