Part of his state.ent read:
“We have witnessed a downtrodden in all sphere of our economy since 2015 when APC came to office and this has affected our youths who are majorly currently unemployed or under-employed.
“Our factories especially in the areas which we were proud to be productive have now been converted to warehouse and churches due to the inconsistent policies and lack of direction of the APC led government.
“In Lagos Central Senatorial District, our factories in Surulere and Apapa had been closed down leading to massive unemployment in the area thereby causing youths to become cultists and thugs instead of being productive. This trend can only be reversed by voting the PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the President and other PDP candidates in Saturday election.”
Olalemi further explained that Alhaji Atiku had promised to invest in women and youths employment and our votes can make this laudable idea of the PDP come to fruition to give live and better living to our teeming youths who are currently disoriented due to the lack of direction by the present government.
“The increase cases of violence and youths unrest in the Lagos Central which is predominantly in Lagos Island, Apapa, Eti-Osa Lagos Mainland and Surulere are due to the lack of gainful employment of the youths. These are some of the things the PDP candidate is aimed to resolve, rescue, recover and reset with a view to having a resounding good economy.
Olalemi reiterated that “I am calling on all well-meaning Lagosians, especialiy, the people of the Lagos Central to shake off the hold of the rulling party in the state and reject the repressive government of the ruling APC by voting them out of office in the coming elections.
“We could all remember the statement by the former Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, (SAN) at the eve of 2015 elections where he urged the electorates to vote the government of APC out of government when they refuse to perform.
“I am hereby asking the good people of the state and well meaning citizens of the state, including educated elite of the state, to heed his advice and reject APC while choosing to vote PDP Candidates in the coming elections.
“In the interest of our collective future and in aspiration for a better country which we all can be proud of, I am using this medium, to once again, urge you to give your vote to PDP and we would ensure that every promise made to the electorates are fulfilled in the Lagos Central Senatorial District and in Lagos as a whole to give our people a breath of fresh air which our party represents in these elections.”
