The Governor of Lagos state and governnorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has charged his supporters and members of the party to take his re-election campaign to the doorsteps of voters.
Sanwo-Olu made the charge on Saturday, 3rd December, 2022, at the official flag off of his re-election campaign in Mobolaji Johnson Stadium, Onikan, Lagos.
Reeling off his achievements within 3years, Sanwo-Olu said his achievements stand him a better chance to win the 2023 governorship election, adding that he had executed projects that were of people’s benefits.
The governor, who handed over the party’s flag to the 3 Senatorial, 24 House of Representatives and 40 House of Assembly candidates of the party, said that ever since Lagosians have been voting APC, the people were not taken for granted.
He said the state was able to surmount the global challenges and carried out populist projects. Sanwo-Olu said that the state is rising because of the projects and achievements that were recorded so far, adding that there are still much to be done to keep the state rising.
”You have seen what we have done across all local governments. New roads were constructed, existing ones were completed. New fire stations were built in Ajeromi/Ifelodun, Iru/Victoria and others, the health facilities were strengthened and many more.
”We appreciate your love, support and solidarity for us. We urge you to vote all our candidates in the coming 2023 general elections, from presidential to the House of Assembly elections. You have always been voting the APC in Lagos. We want you to work with us and as well journey with us by giving us your mandate”, said Sanwo-Olu.
Olusi said that over 160 new roads were constructed under the Sanwo-Olu administration and that more of that can only be done if the governor is re-elected.
He, however, urged the people to get their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) and vote for the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, saying that Lagos had never presented presidential candidate since 1999.
The Director General of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council in the state, Distinguished Senator Ganiyu Olanrewaju Solomon popularly referred to as GOS urged Lagosians to re-elect Governor Sanwo-Olu and Dr Kadiri Obafemi Hamzat in next year’s general elections owing to the governor’s giant strides in Lagos state through his THEMES agenda.
Also, a member of the GAC, Cardinal James Odunmbaku, said that the 2023 presidential election would be a payback time for Tinubu for his contributions to the growth of democracy in Nigeria, saying that the party is targeting 5million votes in Lagos.
