Prince Bello Yussuf Adeniyi, an aspirant for the Ikorodu Constituency II seat in the Lagos State House of Assembly, has accepted the emergence of Mr Aro Moshood Adeniyi, the winner the shadow primary election, as the consensus aspirant which everybody must support.
The aspirant, who stepped down before the primary election due to his ongoing observance of Itkarf (Muslims’ seclusion in mosque during the last 10 days of Ramadan) which prevented him from attending most of the engagements and the election proper, also charged co – aspirants to accept the supremacy of the party and rally round the winner.
He is a Financial Advisor Manager at American International Insurance Company PLC.
Meanwhile, one of the aspirants have disassociated himself from the shadow primary election while another rejected the outcome.
Prince Adeniyi spoke on the shadow election in a chat with THE IMPACT on Saturday.
“Party supremacy is important and collective decision is more important than any personal ambition. Whatever the party leaders think is the best course of action, we will respect that decision”, he said.
“My message to other aspirants is that they should understand that as progressives, they must respect the party supremacy and its guidelines.
“We must all rally round the consensus candidate. Our primary goal must maintain the current momentum that will bring victory to the APC at all levels”, Prince Adeniyi appealed.
“So we should all find a common ground to support the winner, Hon Aro Moshood Abiodun.
“In any contest, there is always one winner. it’s AMA’s turn now…ours is down the line as long as we stay true to the party, APC”, he added.
Adeniyi, who is a Prince from Egbin Kingdom in Ijede LCDA, also expressed his support for the rotational arrangement which he said must be respected.
“Rotational arrangement is needed because of equity and fairness. This will ensure all interests are served across board and am in total support of that”, he said.
Also, the aspirant, who is a devout Muslim, in his message to Muslims in Ijede LCDA, urged them to continue to live their lives in accordance with the Ramadan teachings and lessons.
“They should imbibe the message and teachings of Ramadan and continue to practice self-discipline, self-control, sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate, thus encouraging actions of generosity and compassion for the poor”, he said.
