APC scribes Tokunbo Abiru says they are confident of winning lagos senatoral bye-election

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming senatorial bye-election in Lagos East, Mr Tokunbo Abiru says, the party is confident of winning the election.

Abiru who made this known to newsmen in Lagos said the party would win because of the agenda it had for the citizens, NAN reports.

“As you are aware, INEC has rescheduled the bye-election, which now holds on Dec. 5th, without ambiguity, we are confident of winning this poll by God’s grace.

“We came into the race purely with the objective of offering people-oriented representation and deploying the instruments of lawmaking and legislative resolutions to promote the welfares of Nigerians.

“Most importantly, I am more passionate about our youths, not just because of the #EndSARS fallout, but also because of shrinking opportunities for them.

“Before the End SARS protest, championing the cause of our youths occupy a prime place in our campaign agenda. We recognise their energy. “We recognise their strength. We also recognise their high level of creativity.

“We will also depend on the use of legislations to create more economic, political, social and technological opportunities for our youths. “Just as we are passionate about the youths, we are equally committed to alleviating poverty,” he said.
