Addressing the inhabitants of the LCDA at the home of Dr. Christopher Anango, the first executive chairman of the council, Dr. Adesola said: “I need to tell everyone standing here today, that my aspiration doesn’t worth the shielding the blood of animal talk less of killing human beings.
“We don’t need to fight or kill anyone because of my aspiration. All candidates are from the same one house and it is whom God wants and chooses that He will appoint.
“Don’t fight or kill anyone over my aspiration. I will never involve or support such act”.
On his take on the nomination of Bababjide Sanwo-Olu as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in Lagos State Adedayo said: ” I have been hearing the rumors that I didn’t support the choice of our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. This is nothing but blatant lie.
“Am in full support of the choice of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, as the governorship candidate of our great party. And I have told all my supporters and members of our party that they should all come out and vote enmasse for Sanwo-Olu as the next Governor of Lagos State. As for those saying that am not Sanwo-Olu, there no element of the truth in such rumour”.
Among the places visited by Dr. Adedayo during the rally includes the home of First chairman of the council, Chief (Dr.) Anago, the traditional head of Ajagbe town, Chief Ojerinde Ajayi Ojora, the chief Imam of Sari-Iganmu Central Mosque, Alhaji AbdulRasheed Adrdotun Olaoye, members of the Community Development Committee (CDC), market places and houses of prominent political leaders in the area.
Endorsing the aspiration of Dr. Adedayo, the first chairman of the council, Pa. Anago said: “Dr. Samuel Adesola Adedayo is my successor. We knew what he did while he was the council chairman and am very sure that if he become our representative at the House of Representatives, there is no doubt that that he’ll do more and represent us well.
“I call on all our party members to come out on Wednesday and give their vote for Adedayo so that he will become our candidate for the seat of House of Representative in 2019 General election”.

Also, Chief Ajayi-Ojora, the Baale of Ajagbe town, Sari-Iganmu said: “the money we the Baales are getting from the council every months was introduced during the regime of Dr. Adedayo as our council chairman and that was even little from what he did to us when he was in power.
“I pray that God will grant him his desire and represent us in Abuja come 2019, so that he will be able to do more for us”.
