National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has congratulated the Lagos State governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his victory in Saturday’s election in the state.
Tinubu assured people of the state that Sanwo-Olu would work for a greater Lagos, stressing that his victory was well deserved.
Addressing journalists yesterday in Lagos, the APC National Leader stated that people of the state voted for Sanwo-Olu in appreciation of the diligent services rendered to the state by successive progressive administrations.
The former Lagos State governor urged people of the state to ignore the campaign slogan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Jimi Agbaje, advocating for freedom.
“It is not about freedom fight, but about a thinker and doer and what APC can do in Lagos to develop further and make further progress,” Tinubu said.
The party’s state chairman, Tunde Balogun congratulated members and Lagosians for reposing confidence on the party, assuring them that Sanwo-Olu will not disappoint them.
Balogun said yesterday was a memorable day, hailing Lagosians for making a wise choice.
He said: “Today, history is being made in Lagos as Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu becomes the governor-elect and his running mate, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, the deputy governor-elect of Lagos State.
“He will be sworn in on May 29 as the 15th governor of Lagos State. I pray all of us will be alive to witness the event.”
