NewsReport gathered that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos state, will launch his campaign for a second term this weekend at the national convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
On Sunday, a prominent member of the Governors Advisory Council (GAC) and one of the apex leaders of the APC in Lagos state told DAILY INDEPENDENT that former Lagos state governor Asiwaju Bola Tinubu had endorsed Sanwo-Olu for a second term and instructed party leaders to work for his reelection.
“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.
