The Lagos Peoples Assembly, a coalition of indigenous groups, has asked residents of the state to join hands together in ensuring that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor, returns for a second term.

Speaking during a press conference in Lagos on Friday, Ologun Emmanuel, convener of the group, said the state has experienced transformational leadership under the governor.

The coalition, comprised of professionals, artisans and religious organisations, noted that Sanwo-Olu has improved infrastructural development in the state and has brought renewed vigour into governance.

“The last three years of Governor Sanwo-Olu have witnessed an unprecedented commitment of his administration to the implementation of the Lagos master plan, an agenda initiated by the national leader of the APC, our dear Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Not only has this made us proud as a people, but it has also reinforced our confidence in the leadership of the governor,” he said.


“We are proud that the APC, in 2019, gave us such a credible and committed candidate in the person of Babajide Sanwo-Olu and he has, in every sense of sincerity, justified the confidence reposed in him by the party.

“Therefore, as we move closer to the critical processes that will culminate in the 2023 general election, it has become imperative to inform the general public of our determination to return Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second term in office. We also appreciate and ask the leadership of the APC to return Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, unconditionally, as the party’s governorship candidate for the 2023 governorship election in our state 
“We want to say it loud and clear, that after considering so many things, we have seen Sanwo-Olu as the best option to continue as the governor of our dear state. Consequently, we call on all well-meaning Lagosians to join us.

“Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, Sanwo-Olu has beyond reasonable doubt proved his mettle to lead Lagos state to greater heights, based on his administration’s commitment to massive infrastructural development, the exceptional success in tackling the global menace of coronavirus, strategic solutions to traffic gridlock as well as key interventions in various sectors in the state in the last three years.”


The Lagos Peoples Assembly added that it passed a vote of confidence on the governor based on how his administration effectively managed the economy of the state at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
