Babajide Obanikoro, the congressman representing Lagos State’s Eti-Osa Constituency in the House of Representatives, has expressed confidence in winning the February 2023 election.
Obanikoro stated this in an interview with Punch, as well as sending an important message to Nigerian youngsters.
When asked if he was certain of defeating Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives candidate Banky W, Obanikoro responded he didn’t want to come out as cocky.
Obanikoro is sure that the merger would be successful based on the work he has done thus far and the ongoing efforts of APC.
“I DON’T WANT TO APPEAR ARROGANT, BUT WITH THE WORK DONE SO FAR AND THE EFFORTS WE (APC) WILL STILL PUT IN, I AM CONFIDENT THAT I WILL EMERGE VICTORIOUS IN FEBRUARY 2023,” HE SAID.
Obanikoro also exhorted the teaming youths to obtain their permanent voter’s cards in order to vote, noting that the 2023 election is the most significant in Nigerian history.
“I ASK THE TEEMING YOUTHS AND ADULTS WHO HAVE NOT PICKED UP THEIR PERMANENT VOTER CARDS TO GO PICK UP THEIR PVCS AND REGISTER TO VOTE,” HE SAID. I HAVE THE SENSE THAT THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION IN NIGERIA’S HISTORY. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT PEOPLE OBSERVE THE CAMPAIGN ISSUES. THIS IS NO LONGER ABOUT THE INDIVIDUALS OR PARTIES; IT IS ABOUT THE ISSUES BEING CAMPAIGNED ON.”
