…Why he backs Ondo Gov. Akeredolu on the acquisition of firearms for Amotekun
…Congratulates Nigeria At 62
The senatorial candidate of Lagos West Senatorial District under the platform of the New Nigeria People’s Party NNPP, Hon. Mustapha Oladapo Dabiri has, for the umpteenth time, called on the federal government under the leadership of President MohammaduBuhari to dialogue with the Academic Staff Union of Universities in Nigeria (ASUU) in order to address the lingering ASUU strike for the sake of the students who have been at home for the past seven (7) months. The NNPP chieftain disclosed that, honouring the agreement with the university lecturers’ Union is the only solution to stop the lingering induwstrial action.The leading senatorial candidate in Lagos west in the forthcoming National Assembly elections, said that the federal government needs to factor the concerns of parents and students in this matter. He further said that, ‘No serious government would afford N1.4billion to purchase SUV vehicles for Niger Republic, a neighbouring country while its own university lecturers are on strike due to unpaid salary’. It could be recalled that National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has vowed to ground activities at major seaports in Lagos and other parts of the country.
In another development, the astute politician whose vision and mission is to inculcate a different representation for the good people of Lagos West Senatorial District under the platform of New Nigeria People’s Party NNPP, has added his voice to that of the governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu on the need to obtain approval from the federal government in order for the Western Nigeria Security Network (Amotekun Corps) to bear arms since the Federal government has approved same for a similar security network in Katsina State. Hon. Dabiri said if Federal government who has been dragging its feet regarding approving the use of AK47 for our Amotekun Corps can turn round to approve same for an equivalent security network in Katsina State then something is wrong somewhere, because what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. He further noted that, if approval can be given for Katsina State where the current president of Nigeria is from then what is wrong in giving similar approvsideal for another state to solve its security challenges?. Hon. Dabiri is on the side of Governor RotimiAkeredolu, of Ondo State who had declared that his administration will acquire arms to protect citizens of the state against life-threatening marauders and organized crime. The awaiting Senator also used the opportunity to congratulate Nigerians on the 62nd independent celebration of the country, urging Nigerians to vote for the right candidates to steer the ship of the country to her desired harbor in the 2023 general elections.
