Lagosians will decide if I merit a second term -Sanwo-Olu | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos state governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says he did not sign any deal that will prevent him for seeking re-election if he becomes the state governor.

Speaking during a Channels TV programme on Tuesday, Sanwo-Olu said he is “going to win” at the March 2 governorship polls.

“I don’t know where the idea of pact or agreement came from. But I can tell you for a fact that there is nothing of such. I didn’t sign a deal with anyone,” he said.

“There is only one term of four years on the INEC form, so it will be up to the people of Lagos state to determine whether I deserve another term based on my performance.”

On the elections, Sanwo-Olu said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should not assess it’s popularity by the crowd at its campaigns as crowds do not translate to votes.

“I think we need to understand that crowd during political rallies is not always the same as voting on election days,” he said.

“I can confirm to you that crowd is not the same as actual voting. A lot happens on the election days. Mobilisation of voters, for example, is a critical element of election.

“So, I’ll advise that the PDP should not jubilate over what they perceive as a large turnout at the Kano rally.”
