SDP Chairman, Tunde Onakoya

The Lagos State chapter of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has re-elected Otunba Tunde Onakoya as its chairman.

Onakoya was re-elected with 29 other state executive members by delegates drawn from the 20 local government areas of the state at a congress held on Friday at the institute of Medical Research Centre, Yaba, Lagos.

Nomination forms, according to the party secretariat, were obtained by thirty aspirants who were screened for various elective positions.

The new officers were elected for a four year term of office by delegates through a voice vote suggested by a delegate from Mushin Local Government, Captain Awonuga Adetayo and seconded by another delegate from Surulere Local Government, a Nollywood actor, Sunny Mcdonald.

Speaking on the conduct of the congress, the newly elected chairman commended the national secretariat and delegates for its peaceful conduct.

“The journey is well, peaceful and adequately concluded. I thank you for taking time to come especially the delegates and state executive members.

I hope we will take this opportunity to prosper our future in this party. We know what is responsible for the low turnout we recorded here today at the congress.

This is something we do know. We are fighting it and by the grace of God. What is rightly ours will be back to us.

Thank you very much. We still have a lot more to do and I hope we will continue to fight and by God’s grace, our fight will be victorious” he said.

While commending the delegates, national chairman of the party, Chief Supo Shonibare called for inclusion of more women in the state executive committee of the party.

He said, “I could see that you don’t have enough women in the state executive fold of the party.

Subsequently, I think this is something you have to work on because inclusiveness implies more women in the executive capacity of the state.

Also, I expect to see young and agile men and women as executive members of the party. This is important in order to encourage our youth as we move forward to evolve a better society.”
