Tinubu endorses Sanwo-Olu's second term ambition

As Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, prepares to publicly declare his second term ambition at the national convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress in Abuja, the national leader of the All Progressive Congress national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has thrown his weight behind him.

The development was disclosed by a prominent member of the Governors Advisory Council in Lagos on Sunday.

The source, who craved anonymity, stressed that Tinubu has endorsed Sanwo-Olu’s second term and instructed the party leaders to work for his re-election.

He said, “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.”

In recent times, there have been palpable air of apprehension and uncertain hovering around the re-election bid of Sanwo-Olu following the manner Tinubu had thwarted the second term ambition of his predecessor, former Lagos State Governor, Akinwumi Ambode in 2019.
