Asiwaju still remain the best candidate…BATYON DG

Published

Ahmed Olajide Oseni, director general of the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Youth Orientation Network (BATYON), a group in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, has said that the track record and experience of Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate put him ahead of other candidates in the 2023 presidential election.

Oseni stated this on Wednesday at the group’s inaugural conference which was held at the LCCI conference centre, Alausa, Ikeja.

The conference had the theme: Nigeria’s Democracy, Identity and Power: Building a Youth-Centric Future.

He added that negative comments about the APC presidential candidate were not true and only met to tarnish his image ahead of next year’s presidential election.

“The three founding members of what we now call BATYON came together; to decide on what we could do to give better orientation to the youths about our country.

So, we were more baffled that many, especially in Lagos and its suburbs, used the opportunity to finger Bola Tinubu as a culprit”, Oseni said.

Guest speaker at the event, Christopher Godwin Akaba, senior special assistant to the governor of Borno State on jobs creation and youth empowerment, said the energy and enthusiasm of the youths was capable of bringing the social reform that Nigerians seek, stressing that any nation that looks down on her youths is bound to fail.

Akaba, noted that the nation requires active youth participation in the electoral process to achieve the desired goals, which can help in taking the country towards progress.

Joshua is passionate about Lagos, especially the legislative beat. He is conversant with the environment and have a very analytical mind

Published

on

The Lagos State Government has extended the ban on commercial motorcycles popularly called Okada to four more Local Govt Areas and five Local Council Development Areas.

As gathered, the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has directed full enforcement from September 1, 2022.

The additional councils where the total Okada ban is pronounced include Kosofe Local Government, Oshodi-Isolo Local Government, Shomolu Local Government, and Mushin Local Government.

Others are Ikosi-Isherri LCDA, Agboyi-Ketu LCDA, Isolo LCDA, Bariga LCDA, and Odi-Olowo LCDA.

Sanwo-Olu had in May banned the operation of commercial motorcycles on highways and six local governments and nine LCDAs. The governor announced that the ban is “indefinite and total”.

The six local governments listed by the governor are Ikeja, Surulere, Eti-Osa, Lagos Mainland, Lagos Island, and Apapa. The ban followed the February 2020 restriction placed on the activities of commercial motorcycles.

Sanwo-Olu said the Government took the decision in line with the State’s Transport Sector Reform Law of 2018 to immediately address the chaos and menace created by the operations of Okada in the listed areas. He told the police to enforce the order without compromise.
