5 March 2019

The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate of the Lagos State House of Assembly for Amuwo-Odofin constituency 1, Mrs. Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, has assured Igbo traders, youths and women in her constituency of quality representation if elected in March 9 gubernatorial and state assembly elections.

Alli-Macaulay, who disclosed this in a statement made available to THISDAY yesterday, also lauded the National leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, for providing the needed leadership to all the party candidates in the state. The former staff of TVC Lagos promised to treat all the constituents equally if given the chance.

According to her, "Our people in Amuwo-Odofin constituency 1 deserve better representation than what is obtainable at the moment. As a woman, I have a feeling of what our women are going through in the area of meeting family needs especially in supporting their husbands to raise a family.

"By the grace of God, women and youth empowerment will be given special priority if I am elected. I will also use my position to attract projects that have direct and positive bearings on the traders and inhabitants of my constituency. I will definitely surpass all the past representatives in Amuwo-Odofin constituency 1.

"Women all over the world have proven to be better manager of positions and resources. I will uplift Amuwo-Odofin constituency 1 to a position of preeminence in the comity of other constituencies in Lagos State."
