GHENGHEN! Senatorial Candidate Pledges 4-Year Salary To District
This man, Alhaji Sikiru Osinowo defeated the incumbent Sen. Gbenga Ashafa at the APC Senatorial Primary to emerge the party’s flag bearer in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
His emergence left the party with a lot of aggrieved members who fell out after the APC primaries in Lagos East Senatorial District.
Therefore, a meeting was organised to mend fences and unify all aggrieved party members.
This was where the fourth-term Lagos State House of Assembly member made his promise to plough back his entire salary to the district if emerged winner at the 2019 elections.
According to Osinowo, the gesture became imperative because of the suffering of the masses and the support received from the party leaders to emerge the flag-bearer of APC in the senatorial district.
He added that apart from his salary for four years, he would use the office to bring more dividends of democracy to the people and seek their good.
Osinowo, who is representing Kosofe Constituency II at the Lagos State House of Assembly, commended the party leaders for support and hailed his rivals who stepped down their ambitions for him to have the party ticket.
“I am not the best, the most educated or intelligent but all is divinely planned. Other candidates have spent money, time and energy before stepping down for me.
“Where you are sending me, I am sure that all your contributions and loyalty will be compensated.
“If by the grace of God, I win the election to represent this senatorial district, my salary for four years belongs to the party.
“Whatever the amount, it is the party money I promise. You’ll determine how it will be shared.
“If you know how the constituents, our supporters and followers struggled and suffered inside sun and rain to make sure I win this election, you will know worthy they are worthy to be given more,” Osinowo said.
According to him, his choice for the Senate seat came to the National Leader of the party, Sen. Bola Tinubu as a surprise, saying he never wanted to contest for it, but party leaders insisted he should.
