Sen. Solomon Adeola (APC-Lagos West) on Wednesday urged Nigerians to vote the All Progressives Congress(APC) top to bottom for the delivery of more democratic dividends.
The senator urged his constituents and citizens in general to reject the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the polls.
He claimed the 16 years of PDP was characterised by treasury looting and bad governance, saying never again should Nigeria return to the era of looting.
Adeola counseled the electorate to vote right, not to sell their votes to those he said took the country backwards while in government.
The Senator said he was glad that the people of his constituency were feeling his impact as their representative at the Senate.
Adeola said in spite of the fact that he was representing a largely populated constituency, he had impacted on people from all parts of the area.
He pointed out that Lagos West was the most populated in the country and that no part of the constituency had complained of neglect in spite of receiving same dues as senators representing much smaller constituencies in the country.
I represent half of Lagos State in terms of the Local Government Areas in the constitution.
In terms of Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Authorities (LCDA) of 57 in Lagos State, I cover 28 LGAs/LCDAs.
And as we all know each of the senatorial districts is entitled to the same dues, thereby placing Lagos West at a disadvantage in terms of the number of constituents I am able to impact upon directly.
But I am not lacking in what I do for my constituents as I have empowered thousands with various income generating equipment as well as training, he said.
Adeola, who is Chairman, Senate Committee on Local Content, said he had embarked on many empowerment programmes and had supported interest and religious groups to ease the running of their activities
He appealed to the people of the constituency to continue to believe in him and the APC for more development projects and programmes in the area.
Adeola had embarked on a street-to-street campaign of the area before a meeting with stakeholders in Ikeja.

Clean smelly Lagos gutters, stop making noise – Deji Adeyanju rebukes Joe Igbokwe
Deji Adeyanju, an Abuja-based human rights activist, has berated Joe Igbokwe, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, over his recent comments on social media.
Adeyanju said Igbokwe who should be cleaning smelly gutters in Lagos State is making noise on social media.
Igbokwe, who is the Special Adviser on Drainage and Water Resources to the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been very outspoken on social media lately.
The APC chieftain celebrated the rearrest of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
He had explained that Kanu once asked IPOB members to kill him and his family members.
The governor’s aide also rebuked Kanu’s style of agitation, stressing that the IPOB leader never witnessed the Biafra civil.
Igbokwe further stressed that the Nigerian government has enough evidence to convict the embattled IPOB leader.
However, Adeyanju, in a tweet wrote: “Joe Igbokwe who should be busy cleaning smelly gutters in Lagos is still on Facebook making noise.”
Meanwhile, we observed that Lagos State has witnessed serious flooding due to rain fall and bad drainage management.
