Tinubu backs Sanwo-Olu’s second term, urges party leaders to support

Tinubu okays Sanwo-Olu’s second term, urges Lagos APC leaders to support him

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, will declare a second term at the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) national conference in Abuja this weekend.

Sanwo-second Olu’s term has been approved by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, former Lagos State Governor and APC national leader, according to a senior member of the Governors Advisory Council (GAC) who is also one of the apex leaders of the APC in Lagos state.

Tinubu had urged the party leaders to strive for his re-election, according to the source, who did not want his name used.

“Sanwo-Olu is coming back. I can authoritatively confirm that to you. He is likely to declare and will kick off his re-election campaign this weekend at Eagles Square, the venue of the national convention of the APC on March 26 in Abuja.

“The governor has performed creditably well in all areas since coming to office in 2019. As a technocrat, he focused on his job as governor and allowed political leaders who ensured his emergence to run the political affairs of the state. This endeared him to many of us and we believe he should be allowed to continue the good works he started,” he said.

Recall that Tinubu had thwarted the chance of former Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode to contest for a second term in 2019.
