‘A big win for APC’ — Dapo Abiodun says Ogun LP has endorsed his reelection bid


Dapo Abiodun, governor of Ogun, says the leadership of the Labour Party (LP) in the state, has endorsed his reelection bid.


Abiodun is running for his second and final term as governor of Ogun.


In a series of tweets on Friday, the governor said the endorsement is a big win for the All Progressives Congress (APC), his party.


He said the support by the opposition party is a testament to how well policies and programmes by his administration suit everyone in the state, even across party lines.

“The executive members and leadership of the Labour Party in Ogun state have endorsed and declared their support for our re-election bid. This is a BIG Win for us and our great party, the APC in Ogun state,” Abiodun tweeted.


“Crucial as it is, this total endorsement by leaders of the frontline opposition party is a clear statement on how well the projects, programmes and policies that have shaped Ogun state under our administration sits well with all and sundry, even across party lines.


“We are not ungrateful for this public, unreserved and objective thumbs-up, that will further project the popular acceptability of our inclusive governance approach.”


Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Julius Abure, LP national chairman, said the party did not instruct any state chapter to liaise with or support candidates from other parties.
