George Folarin Adegeye, son of the ace Juju music maestro, King Sunny Ade, has been declared the winner of the Amuwo-Odofin Federal Constituency seat in Lagos under the Labour Party candidate (LP).
Risikat Ajoke Adegeye, the late wife of Sunny Ade, a former lawmaker in the Lagos State House of Assembly, was the politician’s mother.
Risikat served in the Lagos Assembly from 2011 to 2015, representing Amuwo Odofin Constituency 1.
She was also a former APC chairmanship candidate in Amuwo Odofin LGA.
She died a day before Sunny Ade’s 75th birthday on September 21, 2021, and was buried a few days later.
Meanwhile, in his acceptance letter, the politician said he would uphold his promises to his constituency.
He also assured that Amuwo-Odofin federal constituency would have a “people-focused representation again.”
“I don’t make empty promises, but we all should be assured that I will not betray the people’s trust as overwhelmingly demonstrated through the ballot box on February 25,” he said.
“The victory is for the good people of Amuwo-Odofin Federal Constituency.”
