MR Desmond  Elliot, a member of  the Lagos State House of Assembly has urged residents of the state to be hopeful and focus on national development as Nigeria would overcome its challenges soon.

Elliott, APC lawmaker who represents  Surulere State  constituency 1, gave the advice while casting his votes on Saturday at Ward 06 Unit 20, Gbaja/Stadium in Surulere Local Government Area of  Lagos state.

According to him, though the country is going through some challenges as things are tough and rough but we must  be hopeful for a  better tomorrow.

“We urge  residents to come out en- masse to exercise their franchise which is their civic duties for the country.”

He said that there was need for all Nigerians to support the APC ruling government to turn the fortunes of the country around.

He said President Bola Tinubu would bring his experiences to bear in turning the nation’s challenges to gains, noting that a lot is being done already in that regard.

Elliot noted that in no distant time,, Nigerians would begin to see the gains of the present administration with current policies being implemented.

On the by-election, the lawmaker said that APC has no competition in Surulere, because of the performance of the former speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, who represented the Federal Constituency.

“Gbajabiamila’s performance is unrivalled. APC will win this election based on performance,’)” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 12 political parties are contesting for the seat left by Gbajabiamila.

The seat became vacant following the  resignation of Gbajabiamila, who resigned after his appointment as Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu.
