The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday inaugurated a 100-man campaign committee for the October 31 by-elections for Lagos East Senatorial District and Kosofe 2 Constituency in the House of Assembly, declaring that there would be no on-the-spot rallies.
State chairman of the party, Tunde Balogun, who also handed over the party’s flag to the candidates, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru and Wasiu Obafemi Saheed (Kosofe 2), said the campaign would be COVID-19 protocol compliant.
According to the APC chairman, the campaign to retain the two seats would be conducted street-to-street, house-to-house, ward-to-ward and from one zone to the other “in a carnival-like movement so that all the people from one street to another, especially the traders, will see you.
“We encourage souvenir distribution, outdoor advertisements, billboards, signage, newspaper advertisements and social media platforms,” he said.
Balogun said the campaign committee chaired by Asipa Kaoli Olusanya is an all-inclusive one comprising the movers and shakers in Lagos East, adding that the opposition should be prepared for defeat.
