“We have observed with keen interest, the dynamics of the race as it has attracted numerous aspirants. While conceding to all such aspirants their right to aspire, including the House of Representatives seat, it has become very timely that we give our support to one of own.
“Ilaje Justice Coalition is of the opinion that Apois having done eight years from 2007-2011 and Ilaje on the verge of competing their eight years from 2011 till date, it is only natural that the Arogbo axis of the Federal constituency produces the next occupier of the seat. Justice and fairness are our watchword.
