Mrs. Kemi Olubajo, Coordinator of FAWOF, who spoke to journalists during the exercise, said that it was imperative for the women to seek for change of government in the state based on what she described as “unfriendly policies of the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government.”

According to Olubajo, “we are here to sensitise people to pick up their their PVCs so that they can vote for Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran aka Jandor and Funke Akindele as Governor and Deputy Governor of Lagos State respectively. “We are women that have come together to say that we are ready to vote for the PDP and vote APC out in Lagos State and at the federal level.
