The immediate past Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Lagos State Signage and Advertising Agency, Mobolaji Sanusi, has said the governorship candidates of the Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and Jide Adediran, respectively, are no threat to the re-election bid of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Sanusi expressed his optimism that “Lagosians will not be cajoled into bequeathing the fifth largest-growing economy in Africa into the hands of either of the opposition candidates that lack public service experience or proven leadership track records.”
His call for support was contained in a press statement made available to The PUNCH on Wednesday.
He lauded Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, for forging a united front in the running of Lagos State’s affairs.
Ahead of the governorship poll, the former LASAA boss called for support for the incumbent governor, saying, “As Lagosians, one of the important things for us to do going into the election is to renew the mandate of Mr. Governor by confidently casting our votes for him to ensure continuity of his developmental strides.
“Sanwo-Olu and his running mate have, in the last four years, taken development in the state to a greater height, thereby sustaining Lagos’ top spot in the comity of states across the federation.
“We cannot afford to entrust the economy of Lagos State to political neophytes.”
