In a show of solidarity, members of the Central Working Committee of The Mandate Movement gathered in a meeting to throw their support behind Chairman, Abdullahi Ayinde Enilolobo, while simultaneously expressing dissatisfaction with the activities of a former Chairman, Cardinal James Odunmbaku (Baba Eto), and the chief of staff to the governor of Lagos state, Tayo Ayinde.

At a meeting held at the residence of the state chairman, all members of the central working committee, women leaders, and youth leaders from various local governments deliberated on how to continue their support for the All Progressive Congress (APC), the Tinubu-led administration, and the Sanwo-Olu-led administration in Lagos.

The Chairman of Chairmen, Chief Olu Arulogun, claimed that the Enilolobo-led Mandate Movement remains the authentic group, insisting that the illegal formation of some people led by Baba Eto and Tayo Ayinde is nothing but fake.

In separate statements, the Woman Leader, Alhaja Mulikat Ajala, and Youth Leader, Hon. Femi John Olumuyiwa of The Mandate Movement reassured their constituents that Enilolobo is the right path for progress.

The Woman Leader underscored Enilolobo’s commitment to inclusive policies benefiting women, urging female members to continue supporting his leadership. Simultaneously, the Youth Leader emphasized Enilolobo’s dedication to youth development, calling on the younger generation to stand behind him. Both leaders expressed confidence in Enilolobo’s ability to lead the movement toward positive and inclusive outcomes for women and youth.

The State Chairman, Abdullahi Ayinde Enilolobo, took the stage, thanking the members for their unwavering backing and emphasizing the importance of unity within the movement. He highlighted the movement’s core principles and vision for the future, pledging to lead with transparency and inclusivity.

The meeting, which attracted a significant turnout, also served as a platform for Enilolobo to thank President Bola Tinubu for his recent economic policies and reforms aimed at benefiting Nigerians. He urged Nigerians to be patient with Bola Tinubu’s administration, acknowledging challenges but expressing confidence in noticeable improvements within the next few months.

Enilolobo emphasized the complexity of governance and encouraged constructive engagement, assuring citizens of the administration’s commitment to addressing concerns. As the nation awaits changes, his call for patience aligns with the expectation that positive transformations will become evident in various sectors.

Enilolobo further saluted Babajide Sanwo-Olu for providing quality leadership and a dividend of democracy for the residents of Lagos. Also, he hailed the Governor’s Advisory Council led by Alhaji Tajudeen Olusi, as the GAC ensures the party keeps faith with its promise to Lagosians and Nigeria people by creating a more prosperous, secure, and just society for all.

Enilolobo stated, “We believe in the ideals of The Mandate Movement. Our group campaigned vigorously for all candidates without using the party structure. We don’t have money. We don’t have connections, but we have God, as well as all of you who have stood behind me.

I was made Chairman by the leaders of our group, in the presence of Baba Eto. After that, the late Baba Badmus took over, and then I was the anointed Chairman, with all your support. It’s so sad to see a former chairman wanting to wield powers with the incumbent. Is that possible?” he asked.

The Mandate Movement, known for its advocacy of social justice and community development, has gained prominence in recent years. It’s on this note that Enilolobo called for unity and collaboration, urging members to focus on the movement’s collective goals. The coming weeks are expected to witness programs by the group as they navigate this critical juncture in its organizational history.

As the meeting concluded, Prince Adewale Arogundade from Mushin local government raised a motion to reaffirm the leadership of Abdullahi Ayinde Enilolobo and was seconded by a former local government chairman from Somolu, Hon. Olorogun Gbolahan Bagostowe. All members of the central working committee, local government chairmen, women leaders, and youth leaders from various local governments unanimously supported the motion.

Ogun To Begin Sales Of 100 Trucks Load Of Rice At Cheaper Rate-Abiodun
…the poor, elderly, vulnerable to get free allocation

 

 

 

Ogun State has purchased 100 trucks load of rice to be sold at cheaper rates to residents of the state to cushion the effect of the rise in the prices of goods in the country.

The state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun stated this on Wednesday while speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting in Abeokuta, the state capital.

Prince Abiodun disclosed that the rice would be subsidized and made available at the rate it was before the recent astronomical rise in the prices of the commodities.

He, however, said the poor, the elderly, and the vulnerable would enjoy free allocation.

“We have decided to give our people foodstuffs like rice, garri, beans. I have ordered almost 100 trailers of rice, they will start offloading them tomorrow (today).

“We have decided that the poor, the elderly, and the vulnerable will be given the rice free of charge, while others will have to buy the rice at the price we formally bought it before the dollar rose very high so that it won’t be a one-off and we can continue till the issue of the dollar is settled,” he said.

Governor Abiodun assured the people of Ogun State that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully in charge and knows what he is doing.

According to him, the President is on top of the situation, adding that Nigerians will soon start seeing the manifestation of the several policies put in place to curtail the rising inflation

He added that the Central Bank Governor, Mr. Yemi Cardoso, at a meeting he had with him, has assured that the dollar would soon fall.

“Everything we are experiencing at the moment is very transient, it will soon pass away. Let me assure you, the meeting we had yesterday (Tuesday) and today (Wednesday) after I left that meeting this evening, I am convinced that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully in charge. He knows what he is doing.

“With the plan that he has begun to implement, you will soon begin to see the change. We must remain very hopeful.

“The last meeting I had was with the CBN Governor. He said I should quote him and tell you that, very soon, the dollar will crash,” he said.

Abiodun noted that his administration in realization of the present hardship facing the country took some steps to cushion the effect, even as he recalled that an intervention worth more than N5 billion was announced by his administration last week.

Tertiary students of Ogun State origin across the country will receive N50,000 each, the governor said.

The secondary and primary school category with about 800,000 students, Prince Abiodun noted, will be done in phases, with the first phase, comprising 100,000 students getting N10,000 each.

Those not captured now would get five exercise books while waiting for the next phase.

The governor said women and the elderly would benefit from free medical care with insurance cards worth N18,000.

Abiodun further noted that his administration would set aside about N500 million monthly to offset the payment of deductions for civil servants in the state public service.

Governor Abiodun urged Nigerians, especially the youths not to allow themselves to be used by unscrupulous elements to disrupt the peace of the country.

“It is now so bad that they have planned to use our youths, give them money to disrupt the peace of the country by staging protests.

“What we going through isn’t what other countries around the world haven’t also experienced. But they were very patriotic, calm because they know the solution is on the way,” he said.
