The Executive Chairman of Badagry Local Government, Hon. Onilude Segun Adeniran has accused the Lagos state governorship aspirant, Olajide Adeniran ‘Jandor’ of the People’s Democratic Party of misleading claims that Ajido, a community in Badagry is threatened by flooding and lacks basic amenities.
The chairman in a statement on Monday noted that the aspirant is a lier, adding that he wanted to woo the populace with lies about the Sanwo-Olu led Administration of not providing adequate amenities.
Onilude said, “My attention has been drawn to a Facebook post by the gubernatorial candidate of the PDP Dr. Olajide Adeniran ‘Jandor’ in one of his recent posts after his campaign visit to Badagry where he erroneously claimed that Ajido, one of the ancient and foremost communities is threatened by flooding and also lacks basic amenities.
While it is becoming the norm to make spurious claims to woo voters during campaigns, I want to set the records straight on the unfounded claims made by Jandor in the misleading posts”
Moreso, Onilude explained that Jandor and his team members passed through the reconstructed Aradagun-Imeke-Ajido Epeme road, adding that it is the Legacy projects of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu led Administration.
The chairman added that the road has opened the Tourism potentials of the communities along the axis.
He said, “The reconstruction of Aradagun-Imeke-Ajido-Epeme road has also opened up the Tourism potentials of the communities along this axis all the way to Whispering Palms and as part of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration THEMEs agenda to promote tourism, by supporting the Ajido Zangbeto festivals.
Secondly, Jandor claimed in that misleading post that the Ajido community has only one primary school. Again, that claim is factually incorrect. There are two primary schools and one secondary school in Ajido main town; L.A Primary School Ajido, Unity Primary School Ajido and Iworo-Ajido Model College. There are other two primary schools in the neighboring communities under Ajido Ward; Seabeach Primary School in Jegeme village and L. A. Primary School in Akarakumo village. These public schools are all functional with a combined total of nine (9) newly constructed blocks of six (6) classrooms with toilets and furniture.
The Ajido community also has a functional townhall renovated by my administration and also a functional Primary Health Centre in addition to the PHC donated by the West Africa Gas Company (WAPCO).”
Countering the aspirant’s claim, Adeniran added that Ajido, the Community in question has functional traffic light and other infrastructural facilities.
“A community with motorable access road equipped with functional traffic light, functional townhall, four primary schools, a secondary school, primary health Centres and a revenue generating company like West Africa Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCO), Lagos State Public Works Corporation Asphalt Plant is not neglected by the government as Jandor claimed in his post.”
