It was a political revival of a sort, when The Consolidation Group (TCG), a political platform birthed by Comrade Ayodele Adewale, gathered to celebrate its first year anniversary on Monday, January 9, 2017, The Street Reporters reports
The group is composed of members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, South West of Nigeria.
Several vibrant grassroots politicians, including young people, from seven political wards that make up Amuwo Odofin Local Government of Lagos State, graced the event.
The occasion offered the group an opportunity to drum up support for its members who are aspiring to occupy various elective offices.
Key aspirant at the anniversary celebration was Comrade Oluwaseyi Valentine Buraimoh, who is the Amuwo Odofin Local Government chairmanship aspirant. Members of the group used the event to continue their support for his aspiration.
Also present were legislative aspirants from the seven electoral wards of the local council, who are seeking to be elected as councillors.
Speaking, the Convener, Comrade Adewale, thanked all the TCG members for their loyalty and support towards the actualisation of the objectives of the organisation.
He further called on all members of group to intensify their drive on their house-to-house campaign to mobilise residents who have not collected their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) to do so.
This, according to him, was necessary in readiness to vote for Comrade Valentine Oluwaseyi Buraimoh, an engineer, and all the councillorship hopefuls in the TCG ahead of the forthcoming local government election in the state, as well as to mobilise for the APC primary election.
He observed that Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) has commenced spadework ahead of the council election.
Comrade Adewale, therefore, pledged to personally put in more efforts to building a political and infrastructural systems.
The former Amuwo Odofin local government chairman told the group that he has gotten “the understanding of a multi billion naira infrastructural development company to support the incoming administration of Comrade Valentine Oluwaseyi Buraimoh after his election and swearing-in into office by the special grace of GOD”.
According to Comrade Adewale, who left infrastructural and developmental footprints while served as the council boss added that “the incoming comrade Buraimoh Oluwaseyi Valentine’s administration will surprise the world, within its first 100 days in office, with remarkable developmental transformation in this local government.”
