337 ward chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State under the auspices of Conference of Ward Chairmen have endorsed Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu as their governorship candidate ahead of Saturday’s primary election.

The group is made of ward chairmen from all the 20 Local Government Areas and 37 Local Council Development Authorities in Lagos State.

The endorsement took place at Martino’s Hall in Ikeja, during a meeting attended by Sanwo-olu, some leaders of the party and grassroots mobilizers.

Govenror Akinwunmi Ambode now appears to be totally isolated.

The Mandate Movement, a group loyal to APC national leader, Bola Tinubu; 57 chairmen of local government and council development areas; party chieftains, PSP operators among others, had declared Sanwo-Olu as their candidate.

Director General of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organization (BOSCO), Mr. Tayo Ayinde, in his remarks, recalled Sanwo-Olu’s achievements while he served in different capacities as Special Adviser and Commissioner at various times.

Ayinde assured everyone present that Sanwo-Olu will not abandon the party and its members when he eventually becomes the governor.

An APC leader, Cardinal James Odumbaku said Sanwo-Olu government “will be a listening and an inclusive one especially for members of the party whose input will be paramount and will form part of decision making process.’

Speaking, Sanwo-Olu thanked the ward chairmen for the endorsement.

Sanwo-Olu, who spoke in Yoruba, reminded them of their role to ensure that APC win both the state and federal elections in 2019.

Commenting on behalf of the chairmen, Mr. Shola Oshobajo assured Mr. Sanwo-Olu of his members’ support before, during and after the primary elections.
