Lagos State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Candidate, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran popularly known as Jandor has paid a visit to Mrs. Bina Jennifer Efidi, the woman who was wounded by suspected thugs at her polling unit in Ikate area of Surulere local government area during the presidential and National Assembly election held on Saturday.
It was reported that people suspected to be All Progressives Congress (APC) thugs unleashed terror on the voters in the polling unit bacause of their history of not supporting the ruling party.
The hoodlums hit Mrs. Efidi with a bottle, causing huge laceration on her face, but due to the cooperation of residents of the area, she was taken for treatment and returned to cast her vote after first aid treatment was administered on her.
The picture of Mrs. Efidi casting her vote with plastered face and dripping blood went viral on the social media.
She was described as the hero of the election.
Adediran described her action as a an encouragement to all Nigerians and Lagosians alike, saying the resilience of the citizen to change the government cannot be broken by any act of intimidation.
He said he had thought the Chief Security Officer of the state who is the incumbent governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo Olum will condemn the dastardly act “but unfortunately, his culpability wouldn’t let him,” saying, “he has remained insensitive and nonchalant to the plight of Lagosians.”
Jandor who extended hands of support to Mrs. Efidi in seeking proper medical attention, enjoined the good people of Lagos State to remain resolute on their readiness to vote out APC and install a government that will birth a breath of fresh air in the state.
