December 4, 2020

Citizen is a column that explains how the government’s policies fucks citizens and how we can unfuck ourselves.

Lawal Adijat Opeyemi of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) will be contesting in the Lagos East Senatorial by-elections which is scheduled to hold this Saturday, December 5, 2020.

The by-election became a necessity after the death of Senator Bayo Osinowo earlier this year, who represented Lagos East Senatorial district, following a brief illness.

A by-election is an election that is held to fill a vacant legislative seat when a member of the legislature has resigned or died, and their seat has been declared vacant.

The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) will be represented in the Lagos-East senatorial by-election by Lawal Adijat Opeyemi, who will be joined by 11 other senatorial aspirants.
