Group tackles Lagos Assembly member over poor representation

By Ademola Orunbon

The Group Coordinator, Epe Progressive Indigene for Good Governance (EPIGG), Mr Olayemi Orunbon, at the weekend, maintained that the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate for Epe constituency 1, Hon. Mustainu Abiodun Tobun, in next year’s elections, does not stand a chance of winning.

Speaking with journalists in Epe, at their secretariat, Orunbon said that Hon Tobun has disappointed the entire masses of the constituency and does not stand a chance of winning the election, noting that nobody knows him in the area anymore, especially with his unpatriotic and unfair manner of alleviating the poverty that ravaging the masses.

Orunbon stressed that anybody aspiring to represent the constituency must be willing to operate beyond friends’ and families’ relationships.

“I don’t know him (Tobun). He is somebody who is in the position for the third term. Go and ask Epe indigenes how many politicians/masses know Abiodun Tobun,” he said.

“We need a House of Assembly candidate that will turn around things devoid of friends and family politics, who will also demonstrate beyond all barriers whether Eko Epe, Ijebu Epe, and religious or regional etc,” Orunbon maintained.

Describing Tobun as a perennial contestant, Orunbon pointed out that the present Assembly member will lose this time, as he did not offer the constituency a very tangible development, and no one is ready to vote for him again.

“Tobun is a force, but our force is greater than him and he knows it. He’s a veteran at contesting elections and this time around a veteran will lose to opposition,” Orunbon declared

Although there has always been the notion that this perhaps remains the best chance for Tobun’s candidacy again, Orunbon insisted that the perception was not new, noting that he will lose this time around with the new electoral law.

He maintained that like in the last couple of elections where the Assembly member contested and won, Tobun’s aspiration to win this time around would fall flat again in 2023, insisting that opposition would emerge.

Orunbon stressed that the Epe constituents had already supported the resolution that opposition will take over from Tobun.
