Sanwo-Olu deserves a second term, says group



A political group, Coalition of Progressives Lagos Gubernatorials (CPLG), on Friday passed a vote of confidence in Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to re-contest in 2023 general election, citing his landmark achievements.

The group, comprising 28 governorship candidates of various political parties in the 2019 general election who stepped down for Sanwo-Olu, gave their support at a news conference in Ikeja.

The CPLG Vice Chairman, Prince Adewale Samson, at the briefing, said that Sanwo-Olu deserved a second term due to his administration’s huge infrastructural development in the state.

“By what we have seen so far, CPLG has been vindicated in our past assertion that Sanwo-Olu embodies the true picture and aspiration of the people of Lagos state.

“We are appreciative of the landmark achievements you brought to bear, your distinction between politics and governance in Lagos state, is legendary.

“By what we have seen so far in the last three years you have been in office – the improvement in the health sector, housing, and quest to continue to improve on the infrastructural development of Lagos State are noteworthy.

“Security, which we all know is everybody’s business, and also improvement of youths empowerment programmes among others are commendable,” Samson said.

He commended Sanwo-Olu’s interventions in the transport sector such as the completion of the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) corridors, Agege flyover, new Uber Taxi, road construction, among others.

“CPLG also passes a vote of confidence in Sanwo-Olu for having done so well in the governance of Lagos.

“CPLG rises in one accord and gives the governor a vote of confidence requesting him to run for second term.

“The governor is actually giving us what we want and it is pleasing. With what the governor has been able to achieve in Lagos and what he looks forward to perfect in the next term, it is our desire that he should be allowed to complete them,” he said.

He, however, advised the governor not to change his winning team, adding that his retinue of commissioners and aides were topnotch, especially the Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi and his Chief of Staff, Mr Tayo Ayinde.

Our correspondent reports that some of the executive members of the CPLG at the event included: Revd Shem-Enoch Mozia (Progressives People Alliance), Prince Idowu Sesi-Michael (All Blending Party) and Chief Mrs Adeyemi Abiola (Democratic Peoples Congress).

Others are Mr Archibong Uduak (Democratic Alternative Party) and Mrs Pauline Adegbe (Progressives People’s Alliance), among others.
