“In the same vein, on Friday, members of the Lagos4Lagos movement were ecstatic and upbeat as their executives were inaugurated across the 245 wards in Lagos State
“This has undoubtedly reaffirmed our formidable reach and capacity. It also laid to rest the undeniable fact that the party administration, even at the grassroots level is dominated by members of the Lagos4Lagos movement.
“The Lead Visioner of the Movement, Dr Adediran (Jandor) used the opportunity to congratulate the newly sworn-in ward executives and those elected today at LG Congress.”
