LAGOS 2019 POLL WILL BE ABOUT CONTINUOUS PROGRESS AND DEVELOPMENT – SANWO-OLU

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu has described the next gubernatorial election in the State as a race for continuous progress and development in the State.

Speaking during a meeting with all the directors of the Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organization, BOSCO in Ikeja on Monday, Sanwo-Olu thanked all members of the campaign organization for a wonderful job they did in the run up to the primary election, saying the last four weeks remained one of the most politically intense weeks in the State.

He therefore urged members of the campaign team to be magnanimous in victory, emphasizing that both team BOSCO and the opponents in the primaries are members of the same family.

‘‘We thank God for the victory but we must ensure that everyone is carried along in this journey. We are all members of the APC irrespective of who we voted for during the primary election. We no longer have aspirant, but a governorship candidate who will be flying the flag of our great party, the All Progressives Congress.’’ Sanwo-Olu said.

In the same vein, the governorship candidate said there is need for him and the campaign organization to reach out to supporters from all the local governments and divisions in the State, noting that ‘‘every one of our supporters should have a sense of belonging. We must go back to those men and women in Alimosho, Ikorodu, Eti-Osa, Badagry, Epe and all other areas in Lagos State, to thank them for coming out to support us during the primaries’’.

‘’These are people who may not have the opportunity to see the governor on one to one basis like you so we must put them into consideration because they remain our major backbone as we embark on the second leg of the journey into the governorship election.’’ Sanwo-Olu said.

Speaking about the opposition, Sanwo-Olu warned members of the campaign team not to under-estimate anyone in politics.  He urged the directors to roll up their sleeves and get ready to work harder for the party’s electoral success in February 2019.

The meeting with BOSCO is first after the emergence of Mr. Sanwo-Olu as the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State.

The Director General of the campaign organization, Mr. Tayo Ayinde said the aim of the meeting was to review the organization’s activities during the primaries and to also appreciate members for standing firmly behind Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the race.

The meeting was attended by all the 28 directors of BOSCO and their deputies, leaders of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State.

Sanwo-Olu also used the occasion to inspect the new office of the campaign organization.
