Ahead of the March 11 election, the Lagos State governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), Tope AbdurRazaq Balogun, says the votes of the electorate “will count”.
TOP MEDIA reports that the AA flag-bearer urged registered voters to shun apathy.
He said he is “looking at clinching about two million votes” to emerge the next governor of Lagos.
Speaking recently to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the youthful Epe-born gubernatorial hopeful stated that he is unfazed by the challenge posed by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Balogun said: “Our victory will be unimaginable because our target number of votes is going to surpass whatever they (the ruling party) have been having in the past.
“We are adopting direct-contact approach in our campaign. We will have block votes in different sectors of the society which is going to turn things around.
“These voters are prepared, some of them have not been voting before because of apathy occasioned by various philosophies like votes do not count. We are giving them assurances that votes will count.
“I believe we (downtrodden) are more than the rich and we believe we can defeat them.
“We are going to show them, we are more than them because it is a game of numbers.
“I am looking at clinching about two million votes and if I am able to get that, going by what we have been doing, I am going to win.”
