Former Commissioner for Home Affairs in Lagos State, Dr. Abdulhakeem Abdullateef, has launched a political movement.
Speaking at Ostra Hall at Central Business District, Ikeja, Abdullateef, who tagged the movement as “Iyepe 2023” with the slogan: “We fit do am”, said the movement aimed at reawakening the political consciousness of the populace.
He said: “We are here to inaugurate a movement – Iyepe 2023. There is apathy in the country. Not so many people are involved in voting these days. You can see that the rate of voters has been going down in Lagos state. Out of about 24 million population, less than 1.5 million voters participated in the last general election.
“So there is gradual level of disinterestedness by the populace. So, we have started this movement to begin to raise political awareness and encourage people to have hope that we can have a transformation. I am the lead visioner. The vision to transform Lagos economy by the time we encourage more people to participate in politics, we believe things will change for better.”
