I Am Disappointed APC Couldn’t Effect The Change We Promised, Teslim Folarin Supported My Ambition In 2011 – Dapo LAM


A former House of Representatives member, Hon Dapo Lam Adesina who represented Ibadan Northeast/ Southeast federal constituency from 2015-2019, has expressed disappointment on the failure of the All Progressives Congress led federal government to effect the ‘change’ the party promised Nigerians before the 2015 general elections.

Dapo who was a former Commissioner in the late Ajimobi led government expressed his disillusionment on a radio programme, Bottom line, anchored by Anu Omorinde on IBR 92.5 monitored by GOALPOACHER NEWS correspondent.

He noted that it was about time the truth be told saying that the APC at the centre has failed the youths.

Speaking on the crisis rocking the Oyo State chapter of the party, he noted that the party is polarized, adding that the party lacks platform and that some people are hell bent in destroying the platform. He advised party gladiators to sheathe their swords and form a formidable platform that will dislodge the ruling PDP in the state.

Speaking on his relationship with Senator Teslim Folarin, Dapo Lam revealed that the former Senate Leader supported his House of Representatives ambition in 2011 though the duo were in different parties then. His words:

“Senator Folarin supported my ambition, he calls me like he calls his son. He talks to me regularly. While I was in African Democratic Congress, he would call me, talk to me and persuaded me to return to the APC.”

“His wife calls me too, she is like my sister, whenever she sees me, she would ask us to talk. Folarin has the edge at what he does, He hasn’t told me about his gubernatorial ambition and when he does, if I compare him with other contenders, if he what it takes, I will pitch my tent with him and support his ambition.

” The fact that I was at Liberty Stadium for our party’s state congress doesn’t mean that I identify with a particular group.

The programme is still ongoing as at the time of filing this report.
