By Adeyemi Adeleye
The Action Alliance (AA) in Lagos State says Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu will be defeated with the action plans and strategies the AA party has put in place in the forthcoming March 11 governorship election.
Alhaji Nureni Ayinla-Oniru, the Lagos State Chairman of the party, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos.
“Noises and dances on the streets in the name of campaign do not translate into votes. The voters are indoors and those are our target.
“We have our own strategies and we are working on them and they are very sweet and they will give us what we want. We don’t have money but we have our game plan.
“We have plans to defeat Sanwo-Olu. To some people, it is difficult but it is not impossible.
“I can assure you that Action Alliance will win 13 local government areas of Lagos during the polls,” he said.
According to him, the party is concentrating only on the March 11 governorship and house of assembly elections.
He expressed confidence that the party would emerge winners of the governorship election in the state, considering its homework of reaching out to the masses.
On campaign, Ayinla-Oniru said that the party had adopted a campaign strategy different from the usual rallies, to reach the people at the grassroots.
“Our mission is to get Lagos State back to the people and residents of the state rather than the few it is currently working for.
“We are touched by the suffering of the poor masses and want to lead a government that will make the poor live a comfortable life. To us, lives of the masses is very important.
“The masses are entitled to their rights and what belongs to them in terms of welfare, hence the reason why AA is on the ballot.
“The party is not for the rich, it is for the poor to unite and rescue themselves from hardship. We have taken our governorship candidate from the masses.
“We have trust and confidence that the masses will prevail in the election, defeating the ‘money bags’.
“No matter how hard the ruling party try, the masses will defeat Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the polls,” he added.
He said that the party had developed REBIRTH AGENDA.
Explaining the REBIRTH agenda, Ayinla-Oniru said that R stands for Restoration of Security, E for Energy and Education, B for Broad- Based Governance, I for Infrastructure and Traffic Management, R for Rural Development, T for Tourism and Transportation while H- stands for Housing and Health system.
