LOL gives lifetime achievement award to Dr. Lateef Jakande as MKO’s son, Alhaji Jamiu Abiodun Abiola watches

As the house
of Assembly election slated for Monday December 1
st   2014
approaches, the electorates of
constituency 1
of Lagos Central senatorial district might have decided on
the real man they want for the job of representing their interest at the state
house of assembly come 2015.

LOL welcoming all to the Surulere Got Talent Show

If feelers
reaching this blog are anything to go by then the December 1st
Primary election might favor chattered accountant turned politician, Mr. Lukman Oyewole Lawal famously known
as LOL.

One of the
reasons why electorates in the constituency are in a higher mood is the fact
that it is the same constituency where famous actor Desmond Elliot is contesting. Desmond
who is largely believed to hail from Delta state recently claimed to
be a Lagosian with addition of Olusola as
his middle name and also contesting for the same position as LOL. However,
indication emerged that LOL, whose late father is a former Islamic scholar and Ansar-Deen missioner Alhaji Ibrahim Oyewole Lawal in
Surulere might be the preferred candidate of the APC as his resume and
professional achievement are said to dust other contenders some of who have
already signified their interest to drop their ambition and support him.
 LOL is orphan who lost both parent at a very
tender age and earned both his Primary and Secondary education at Surulere.
LOL….’A political post is not a self glorifying slot but a collective appointment’

“As part of his contributions to the Society, he registered an NGO “ The Ultimate Youth Dream Initiative” through which he does; Citizens Re-orientation and Re-engineering as well as “Impact Assessment of Laws and Policies”, which culminated in his research into all Laws enacted in Lagos State from 1999 till date,..”

On Sunday
November 19, 2014 LOL organized what is known as the first ever Surulere Got Talents completion where a lot of young people living in Surulere displayed
their talents with three new talents Golden
, Joy and Serah (Twins)
and Oredapo Oladapo Oreoluwa emerging
as winners with different sums of money prize won for the development of their
talent and career. The event organized by LOL’s NGO, The Ultimate Youth Dream Initiative also honored first Lagos state
executive governor, Alhaji (Dr.) Lateef
Kayode Jakande
with a lifetime achievement award which was physically
received by the octogenarian statesman.
In his word,
Jakande described LOL as “a Leader
to watch out for”  while Alhaji Jamiu Abiola, scion of late
symbol of democracy Bashorun MKO Abiola
who was a special guest at the occasion described LOL as “a fantastic leader
and a very intelligent man”. A gospel artiste Lady Evangelist Dunni Olanrewaju aka Opelope Anointing who was
equally a special guest of honor at the occasion said this of Lookman Oyewole Lawal “Nigeria is in
need of people like LOL and his unique leadership style”
Although two
weeks later, actor Desmond Elliot also
replied with an event he quickly organized in honor of widows in the
constituency with the presence of famous footballer Kanu Nwakwo in attendance but opinion poll suggests that LOL’s
initiatives which cut across youth development, policy awareness and health
care is more resounding among the large number of youths and adults of Surulere Constituency 1.

opinion audit carried out by your soar away Africa’s number 1 celebrity
encounter blog asabeafrika we
