Seven governorship candidates and nine political parties have endorsed Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for second term.
The endorsement came from the Alliance of Registered Political Parties and was announced at a press conference in Lagos on Monday.
The nine parties are the All Peoples Party; Action Democratic Party; Allied Peoples Movement; National Rescue Movement; Young Progressives Party; New Nigeria Peoples Party; Zenith Labour Party; Social Democratic Party and People’s Redemption Party.
They said their decision was informed by Sanwo-Olu’s outstanding performance in office and they believed that he should proceed for second term.
The parties said that it’s worthy of note that he literarily saved the country from the scourge of COVID-19 through proactive measures that underscored his responsive and responsible attributes. Among others, massive road construction, investments in education, health care services, the environment, youth empowerment, tourism, public transportation, housing, science and technology need to be consolidated during his second term.
They pointed out that it would be good for the state to be in tune with the incoming Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Presidency.
