22 Lagos communities support Sanwo-Olu’s re-election bid


Twenty-two indigenous communities of Idasho in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos have thrown their support behind Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s re-election bid ahead of the rescheduled March 18 Governorship/Assembly polls.

Speaking to newsmen on Sunday at Idi-Shewe Beach, Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Area, the Secretary-General of the communities, Ladipo Adeokun said the support for Sanwo-Olu’s re-election was their “voice and political stand” in the elections.

Adeokun said the communities support the candidacy of Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat, his deputy for a second term based on the good work the dup had begun in the state.

He enjoined the Ibeju-Lekki indigenes and residents to come out en masse and vote for all the political candidates of the APC.

“This is to ensure that the incumbent governor of Lagos, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu and others are returned elected in the various political posts they are vying for.

“Our unwavering commitment in doing this will go a long way to show our appreciation for the electoral promises delivered by the ruling party that has been directing the affairs of the state.

“It will bring about the anticipated development”, he assured.

The secretary-general also congratulated the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, on his electoral victory in the Feb. 25 elections.

“We also appreciate others who voted for his emergence all over the country. May Almighty God continue to guard and guide Tinubu’s presidency,” he said.

The secretary-general also expressed confidence in Tinubu’s capabilities to deliver on all electoral promises and prayed for God’s protection over his presidency while also appealing for the approval of the community’s monarchical candidate as Oloja of Idasho.

He noted that the community’s choice had already been tabled at the state’s Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, to enable viable development of the community.
