‘You are greedy’ – Reactions as Lagos Senator, Adeola declares for Ogun West

Nigerians have reacted to the decision of Senator Olamilekan Adeola of Lagos West to vie for the Ogun West senatorial seat in 2023.


Adeola, who claims to be an indigene of Yewa in Ogun State, was in Ilaro on Wednesday to declare for the Ogun West senatorial race under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).


It was reported that by 2023, Adeola, who is in the Senate for a second term, would have completed 20 years as an elected lawmaker in Lagos State.


Senator Adeola, addressed as Yayi, spent eight years as a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, representing Alimosho State Constituency 2, from 2003 to 2011.


From 2011 to 2015, he was a member of the House of Representatives, where he represented the Alimosho Federal Constituency and he has been in the Red Chamber since 2015.


According to him, he was heeding the clarion call of his people to return home and contest for the post.


He said he had transferred his voter’s card from Lagos to Ogun State, saying he is now a registered member of the Ogun APC.


But, Nigerians seem not pleased with Adeola’s decision to return to the Senate the third time after spending eight years representing Lagos West in the same Chamber.


To some, having his way in Ogun West would say a lot about the people of Yewa/Awori and their political ideology.


While some agreed that the Nigerian constitution does not stop anyone from contesting for political offices in different States, others opine that no single individual can claim two States at a time.


Across various social media platforms, they make known their views on the relocation of Adeola from Lagos West to Ogun West.
