Lagos SDP deputy governorship candidate declares support for Sanwo-Olu
Deputy governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Lagos State, Olori Morenike Animashaun, has declared support for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu ahead of the March 11 election.
Animashaun made the declaration on Wednesday at a press conference held in Ikeja.
She stated that Sanwo-Olu had delivered on his social contract with Lagosians through the famed THEMES mantra, adding that the governor’s consistency as a progressive democrat is worthy of emulation by all politicians.
Animashaun urged all her supporters to vote massively for Sanwo-Olu, adding that his re-election would make him to continue on the path of taking Lagos to an enviable height.
“We cannot sacrifice the various land-mark achievements of the present administration scattered all over the state on the altar of bitter politicking. The governor’s consistency as a progressive democrat is worthy of emulation by all budding politicians.
“We observed at a close range his energetic campaign through the nooks, corners and crannies of the state.
“He has delivered on his social contract with the good people of Lagos through the famed THEMES mantra.
“It’s worthy of note that he literally saved the country from the scourge of Covid 19 through pro-active measures that underscored his responsive and responsible attributes. Among others, massive road construction, investments in education, healthcare services, the environment, youth empowerment, tourism, public transportation, housing and science and technology need to be consolidated during his second term.
“It makes a whole lot of sense for Lagos State to be in tune with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Presidency at a time like this to achieve our age long desires and lofty aspirations. It is worthy of note that some of the circumstances that threw up a temporary Labour Party relevance are being addressed speedily.
“His message of GREATER LAGOS RISING reverberated with all and sundry and we can safely conclude that we have in Sanwo-Olu a governor who is resolutely committed to take our state to greater heights in the years ahead.
“Lagos State is too important to be entrusted into hands of ill-prepared , opportunistic and inexperienced political neophytes. A vote for Sanwo-Olu will indeed be an endorsement for continuity and greater development.
“From the fore-going and many more, I , Olori Animashaun Morenike Abeni , wish to formally step down as the deputy governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and declare my support for the ruling APC candidates,” Animashaun said.
