Photos: Meet The Young Man Lagos Mainland Is Clamouring For As Their Incoming Chairman

This is a sponsored post...
In the Mid 80’s, Dayo was born in Lagos Nigeria and raised in Ebute Metta by His Single/Widowed Mum and Prayer warrior grandmother in a single room on Jebba Street. Today, He is running to become the next Chairman of the Local Government – Lagos Mainland LG. Dayo was born into the Abdulai Family in Olowogbowo (Agbole Baba Eleran/Baba Dudu) and the Banire Family in Ibita Ofin Lagos Island.
Lagos Mainland gave me an opportunity for a good start, I spent my early years growing up on Kano Street, Jebba Street, Apapa road and Iponri. The Primary School I attended were Gloryville and Prime Day Spring Nursery and Primary School, then in Onike and now in Odunfa. Gradually I saw our community deteriorate, many of my age mates getting pregnant before graduation, many dropping out of school due to extreme poverty. I had expected that things will improve but regular interaction with our community members have shown that
these challenges remain” He said.
“I am burdened that if we do not act and do more, the next generation will miss out on the opportunities that our community gave me when I was growing up. For a young man with a lot of dreams and impact, Lagos Mainland is not where it should be.
In August 2016, Dayo trained over 7000 mainlanders in vocational skills for 3 weeks free of charge. That was not the first time, in 2007, without any political ambition and as a student, Dayo travelled to Nigeria to organise a 6 weeks free summer school for mainland youth in Ebute Metta.
Dayo Israel is an Advisor to Governments, International Development Specialist, and Preacher. He is also a globally recognized personality with over 15years of professional experience in international development having worked with organisations such as The United Nations, British Council, Save the Children UK, UNICEF, in various capacities. He was selected by the United Nations to represent all delegates to the UN General Assembly Special Session on Children on a special CNN Live Interview in 2002. He was specially invited by Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh to a private reception at Buckingham palace as a result of his contribution to Africa Diaspora Development, the only ever recipient of the Young PEWA (Person Earnestly Working for Africa) Award at the office of the Mayor of London. He was also invited by the Obama Administration to the White House President’s Forum for Young African Leaders in Washington DC and an Alumnus of the US State Department International Visitors Leadership Program that has produced over 400 Heads of Government globally.
Aside procuring over 20 Jamb forms for student this year, Dayo is also offering a 5 weeks free jamb lesson to Mainland students. According to him “Its not enough to offer them jamb form, we must get them into University by empowering them with the knowledge to pass the exam”.
A former student leader, Dayo was the First African to be elected a Student Council Chair at London Metropolitan University and served on the University’s Academic Board with the Vice Chancellor, representing over 30, 000 students on the board. He was also a member of the Research and Development Committee of the University with the Deputy Vice Chancellor during his Post Graduate days.
Dayo pioneered a lot of advocacy towards the enactment of the Child Rights Act and Juvenile Justice Framework in Nigeria. At 16, He was appointed the Chairman of the Presidential Summit of Nigerian Children after leading the Nigerian Children delegation to the United Nations Special Session on Children in New York. 
“My mission is to restore opportunity, and in doing so protect and advance Mainland’s competitiveness and upgrade its status to a world-leading community of opportunity and creativity, contributing to the effort of my Governor H.E Akinwunmi Ambode in advancing our dear Lagos State. My first priority will be to revamp our primary health care centres and primary schools. Health is wealth and without access to good basic healthcare, our lives will continue to be at risk. I will also tackle the poverty and unemployment crisis that rocks Lagos Mainland; we need to take pragmatic action to end poverty and promote entrepreneurship in Mainland”, He said.
Dayo recently organised a Mega One Mainland Peace Concert in Ebute Metta on Easter Monday which featured Majek Fashek, Jaywon, Mike Abdul, Monique, Wole Oni, Ibitayo, Doris Simeon, Femi Branch and more.
Dayo was elected into the Nigerian Children’s Parliament at the age of 14 and rose to the position of the Deputy Senate President of the National Children’s Parliament until His retirement. After serving as One Day Commissioner for Information in Lagos State, He was privileged to have received scholarship from the then Governor of His State Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to study Law at London Metropolitan University.
Dayo sponsored the renovation (face-lifting) of the APC Party Secretariat in Lagos Mainland LG. He said “the Secretariat represents the image of our great party and must continue to be befitting of a party that will transform the Local Government, the State and our great Country. Your environment influences you, so when I visited the secretariat recently and saw the state of the place, I said to myself something must be done.”
“I will make Mainland safer and more secure, with a renewed focus on neighbourhood policing, action to tackle the spread of hooliganism, and fighting for the resources our police and fire services need. In doing so, I will keep the LMLG local government tax precept down, as far as possible. With money so hard to have for so many Mainlanders, my promise is to keep council levy as low as possible without risking public service. Above all we will make sure our Local Government Secretariat listens to Mainlanders and involves them more directly in the decisions that affect our city. I’ve got the experience, values and vision to put Mainland back on the right track”. He said.

About 2000 Lagos Mainlanders have benefitted from free medications, Genotype testing and comprehensive quantum tests at the various Comprehensive Health Fairs organised by Dayo Israel in Okobaka/Ilenjo, Otto, Otumara and Apapa Road.
Dayo Israel is one of the foremost aspirant in the race and believes that the office of the Chairman shouldn’t be bogged down by sentiments but ability to perform, transform the lives of community members and fulfilling the Party Manifesto. 

Perhaps, these and more are why Lagos Mainland Local Government residents are clamouring for the All Progressive Congress to nominate Dayo Israel as their Flag bearer in Lagos Mainland. Dayo has a campaign website on mainland.dayoisrael.com .
