Some members of the All Progressives Congress have opposed the proposed bill of the Lagos State Assembly to move Alimosho Federal Constituency into Badagry Division.

They opposed the move at a stakeholders’ meeting organised by the APC leaders in the Badagry Division, held at the Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area in Lagos on Tuesday.

The stakeholders, in a communique after the meeting, said any attempt to tamper with the structure on the ground would be resisted by the division.
