Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by kitaun(m): 8:00pm On Apr 09, 2007
FOR SPORTS TO REGAIN ITS LOST GLORY IN LAGOS STATE


I have observed with deep regret the very deplorable and despicable manner in which Lagos State has been relegated to the background in Sports cry cry

Gone are the days when Lagos State was the dominant state, when it was about Table tennis then the likes of Atanda Musa, Yomi Bankole, and subsequently Segun Toriola ensured Lagos State cornered the winners’ medals in competitions taken part in.even the ladies weren’t left out in making Lagos proud then e.g Funke Oshonnaike cheesy

What of Athletics, Badminton, Volleyball et al?

How would I ever forget how Lagosians were crazily supporting their darling teams of those days, teams like Stationery Stores, Julius Berger, NEPA, ACB, First Bank, NEPA,. The league then was incomplete without the participation of these teams , but do we have today? Zilch and sadly enough the whole of the South West has been engulfed by the disease which is NO REPRESENTATION IN THE FOOTBALL PREMIER LEAGUE

FYI, the only team from the South West (or better put Yorubaland) is Prime FC Osogbo, now doesn’t that show how negligent our leaders have been to the issue of Sports? shocked

My postulation is; for us to have the vibrancy as numero uno when it comes to Sports restored, Lagosians need to vote in a Governor that is a sportsman himself, sports-loving, and that would be ready to make sacrifices to ensure that our STATE OF EXCELLENCE once again reclaims the No. 1 Spot amongst other states in the Federation smiley

THE PERSON I ADVOCATE FOR IS NO ONE ELSE BUT BABATUNDE FASHOLA (SAN) cool

Even Segun Odegbami aka Mathematical had written in one of his articles some Saturdays ago in The Punch newspapers how he would love to see Fashola emerge as Governor of Lagos State, having played alongside him, where as a striker Fashola himself scored 3 goals in a recent friendly game played, now tell me how many of our pot-bellied politicians can still take to the field and still do such. Fashola had never lost touch with his sports-playing constituency as he also played other games prominently too cheesy

We can take a cue from Chief Orji Uzor Kalu and the way he sponsored Enyimba to the extent that they eventually brought glory to the country by breaking the jinx we had been faced with at African Champions’ league level. Cant the same be said of Dr Peter Odili who transformed Eagle Cement to a giantbeater team- Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt? What of how Bukola Saraki has been able to fund the Sports Academy in Kwara State? undecided cool

There is no time like now for us to actualize our vision of a Lagos truly excellent in sports cool

Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by star01(m): 9:18am On Apr 11, 2007
and was that in response to yours?, stop being nosy my dear
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by abubaka(m): 11:40am On Apr 11, 2007
i think Jimi Agbaje is the right man for the job.Wat people failed to understand is that,Tinubu has done a lot of damages to lagos state and the only way to cover his tracks is to get a muppet that would be loyal to hima after leaving the office. Fasola is just a figure head that would continue to be answerable to Tinubu.
just look at the political scene of this country critically,you would agree with me that no state governor agree to support his deputy to contest for governorship office,WHY?Because they know that they would be easily exposed to all their misdeeds.
Is a pity,but God will surely judge them.
Another area that i want to correct Fasola is,Why should he wear Manchester United Jersy while campaigning?
Am very sure that many Arsenal and chelsea supporters would not vote for him.
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by davidiyaji(m): 11:42am On Apr 11, 2007
Judging from FASHOLA's ads you would know that he knows the problems of Lagos State and he knows the appropriate answer to these problems, that is if he would follow what he tells us on TV and Radio. I think lets give this man a benefit of doubt, he seems to be the right man for the job. Unlike other candidate who all they know is that their fore fore fathers are descendants of Lagos. What the hell do we need that for!!! cool
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by davidiyaji(m): 11:46am On Apr 11, 2007
I don't think wearing a jersey for a clubside would victimize him. Everyone has a club which he/she supports, even you. So I don't think that would make you any less person. He is just trying to portary that he is a sports loving person.
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by dremoney(m): 2:37pm On Apr 11, 2007
FASHOLA IS MY MAN ANYDAY.
Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a man that has successfully turned the virtue of many families around for good in lagos - state.
He's put everlasting smile on d faces of many people in lagos - state n even outside of lagos.
He is an understanding leader,very confident and a good politician to the core.
I love everything about Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and if that wil cost me to vote for Fashola i sure wont hesitate a million times.

Please everyone,VOTE CONTINUITY
VOTE BABATUNDE FASHOLA FOR  GOVERNOR OF LAGOS _ STATE. smiley
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by zillonnair(m): 3:17pm On Apr 11, 2007
Let the so called Barr. Babatunde Fashola tell the whole Lagos State how he awarded a contract of N7Billion to himself serving as the Chairman of the Lagos State Tenders Board.

A thief like Babatunde who told the whole lagos state the project is ongoing, i have been to Eko - Akete for only God knows how many times, i am yet to see two blocks standing on each other, whereas the contract had been awarded for over three years in his reign as the Chief of Staff of Lagos State. He is a mad man, am sorry to say.

As The sole representative of Bayern Munich Fan we support Fashola we want a SAN a man that can do it can anybody tell me Obanikoro's source of income other than politics and leeching on government.
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by tosinadeda: 12:55pm On Apr 12, 2007
I AM SORRY TO SAY BUT ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS FASHOLA IS A THIEF LIKE HIM.
HE IS THE ONLY MAN WHO THE LAST THING THAT HAS NOT PROMISED HIS HEAVEN.

MY GOD, I CANT BELIEVE PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY FALLING FOR HIS ANTICS. THE FACT THAT TINUBU IS BEHIND HIM IS CLEAR FOR EVERYONE THAT IS WISE TO SEE THAT HE IS JUST GOING TO BE THERE TO OBEY INSTRUCTIONS.

ANYONE WATCHED THE DEBATE ON CHANNELS TV WOULD AGREE WITH ME THAT ALL HE WAS GIVING WERE PROMISES THAT NEED GREAT FINANCIAL BACKING TO COME TO PASS. IS IT WITH THE MONEY THAT IS NOT FORTHCOMING FROM GOVT OR THE LITTLE INCOME THAT COME FROM GOVT THAT WILL BE USED TO PAY SALRIES OF CIVIL SERVANTS THAT HE WANTS TO USE OR IS HE GOING TO CONJURE MONEY FROM HEAVEN?

LEFT TO ME I WOULD PREFER A GOVERNOR UNDER THE RULING PARTY PDP EVEN IF I DECIDE TO VOTE FOR A THIEF AS A GOVERNOR, COS IT IS VERY OBVIOUS THAT IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS THET LAGOS SUFFERED , COS OF THE SINGULAR FACT THAT AD RULED LAGOS INSTEAD OF PDP. WHAT DO U EXPECT WHEN ALL THGE GOVERNOR DID WAS TO TACKLE THE PRESIDENT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE CITIZENS OF LAGOS. SO VOTING FASHOLA WILL ONLY CONTINUE THE SUFFERING OF LAGOS UNDER YHE PRESIDENCY OF THE RULLING PARTY.


FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT A CHANGE


I THINK JIMI AGBAJE SHOULD BE VOTED GOVERNOR OF LAGOS SATE.



FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE BLINDED BY THE EXPENSIVE CAMPAIGNS AND UNREALISTIC PROMISES OF THE THIEVES, AT LEAST GIVE LAGOS HOPE BY VOTING FOR THE RULING PARTY WHICH IS PDP

VOTE OBANIKORO
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by kokorunna(m): 11:41am On Apr 13, 2007
Raji Fashola, more educated than the rest and looks like a better candidate smiley
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by Mustay(m): 4:19pm On Apr 13, 2007
More educated? Ehen. Ok o!
Tosin you r wise, not only because you support Agbaje but also because you've seen d tool he can be used as.
Fash is also a manu fan- proudly united. What a pity. He can't even support bolòwötön Fc- governor my .aneci
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by krap(m): 4:51pm On Apr 13, 2007
I think politics should be issue based and not character-assasinations being carried out between fashola and koro. I really admire agbaje's master plan for lagos and would like to see him become governor
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by kitaun(m): 5:51pm On Apr 13, 2007
@All


I really appreciate all comments passed, negative and positive, at least its an indication that we know what we want for ourselves cool

What I would have appreciated was you guys saying how your various candidates hope to develop sports in Lagos not coming here to start another round of character assassination embarassed we have already had enough of that in the politics section cool


@Femilangy

I know for one that Koro was once a member of the NFA and LFA, what were his contributions when he served on these boards? Zilch

I imagine if we werent friends the kind of attacks you would have made me put up with? or what explains your hissing cos I created this thread to engender as a sports lover, the needed affinity from our next Governor towards Sports?


@Tosinadeda

shocked lipsrsealed
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by Mustay(m): 6:27pm On Apr 13, 2007
None of them has a plan 4 sports- even our debates didn't seem to think of enquiring about sports. Like Agbaje says- issues are prioritised. Solve d major issues first and d others 'll take place.
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by kitaun(m): 6:53pm On Apr 13, 2007
@Mustay shocked shocked


are you kidding me? shocked didnt you watch their rallies? did you miss the part where Fashola 'raced' the ball several times on stage at a rally in Kosofe LGA? undecided

one of the pivot of Fashola's campaign has been how to ensure recreational centres are created and existing ones maintained so as to ensure that youths instead of indulging in criminal activities, would rather develop their God-given sporting abilities by visting these centres and honing their skills. . . cool

So, Agbaje does not have a plan for Sports development? so sad!!! tongue grin
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by Mustay(m): 7:17pm On Apr 13, 2007
I trust u. Read thisday sunday edition of last 2 weeks- eko 4 style. I repeat- none has no plans
Re: Sports-loving Lagosians: Who Will You Vote For? by kitaun(m): 7:23pm On Apr 13, 2007
