2023: Lagos East APC leaders endorse senator for re-election
According to TODAY newspaper, All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders in Lagos East Senatorial District have endorsed Senator Mukhail Adetokunbo Abiru for a fresh term in the Senate.
They said in terms of quality representation, sponsorship of bills and resolutions, devotion to oversight functions, loyalty to the party, demonstration of good character, respect for party leaders and multiple empowerment programmes for constituents, he has lived up to expectation.
Three Governance Advisory Council (GAC) members-Senatorial Leader Busura Alebiosu, Asiwaju Olorunfunmi Basorun and Chief Akanni Seriki Bamu-praised Abiru for not letting the street down in the Senate.
Seized by nostalgia, Alebiosu, a former House of Assembly member and Basorun, former Second Republic Secretary to Lagos State Government, described the senator as a political incarnate of his illustrious father, Justice Akanbi Abiru, who also served as senator between 1979 and 1983.
Basorun, who said he would sign his nomination form, saluted his passion for service, urging other politicians to emulate his style and good deeds.
Also, at the Eid-Fitri celebrations organised by Abiru at his Ibeshe, Ikorodu residence, a former Works Minister, Senator Seye Ogunlewe, described him as a man of the future, saying that the sky cannot be his limit and that his future is bright.
The celebration became an endorsement ceremony for the senator, whose colleague from the Lagos West, Senator Yayi Olamilekan Adeola, described as an asset to the Senate, the party and the district.
At the ceremony were GAC members-one time Finance Commissioner Wale Edun and Ashipa Kaoli Olusanya-Lagos APC Vice Chairman Olayinka Oladunjoye, House of Assembly Majority Leader Sunai Agunbiade, lawmaker Femi Saheed, Pa Oyedele, Suleiman Adeyanju, Lanre Odubote, Dengie Anifowose, Sesan Daini, Abubakar Olalekan, Kafilat Ogbara, Victor Alonge, Remi Odunsi, Tayo Odunsi and Dele Ogunsipe.
