The son of King Sunny Ade, the ace Juju music maestro, George Folarin Adegeye, has been declared the winner of the Amuwo-Odofin Federal Constituency seat in Lagos as the candidate of the Labour Party (LP).



The politician’s mother was Risikat Ajoke Adegeye, the late wife of Sunny Ade, who was also a former lawmaker at the Lagos State House of Assembly.


Risikat represented Amuwo Odofin Constituency 1 at the Lagos Assembly from 2011-2015.


She was also a one-time chairmanship aspirant of APC 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.”
