Gospel artiste, Kenny Saint Brown has broken silence on her failure to clinch the All Progressive Congress (APC) ticket for Lagos State House Of Assembly in next year’s general elections.
Speaking during an interview with Encomium Magazine, the Vice –President of Kennis Music disclosed that she lost out in the party primary because the leadership of the party wanted to compensate the party’s spokesman, Lai Mohammed by giving the slot to his son ,Folajimi Mohammed who emerged the winner.
“It is the leaders, we did what our leaders wanted. I aligned to their will. It was Lai Mohammed’s son they wanted. It does not mean I cannot be put elsewhere to serve, it is not that I lost. The other guy has never been a legislator too. We are all new. We have a lot of new faces in APC than anywhere else”.
“I congratulate the winner. I learnt he came out four years ago and he was told to step down for Ikuforiji. We are gathering experience and we will gather more experience. It is not a bad situation. I was able to convince people that I could do it. I was able to add my voice. It is even a feather to my cap now. There is no hard feelings about it. I was able to come out for what I believe. It is just a seat in the House of Assembly. I can still get a seat elsewhere. I have passion for women and youths. I went through all the processes. I was the best candidate in my constituency. At least, I am a politician now.”
