Lori-Ogbebor backs Sanwo-Olu for second term – The Sun Nigeria

By Sunday Ani, Lagos

Barely 72 hours before the Saturday, March 18 governorship election in Lagos State, rights activist, Chief Rita Lori-Ogbebor, has thrown her weight behind the candidacy of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, insisting that the governor has done well to deserve another term.

In a statement by Lori-Ogbebor, she explained that Sanwo-Olu has contributed to the growth of Lagos in accordance with the plan laid down by his predecessors.

“As you go to the polls on Saturday, may the almighty God and his people give you the opportunity to finish your work. God bless you, my son,” she said.

“I have been in Lagos and have seen Lagos grow. As a young journalist, I knew how Lagos was and those who have worked. This young man is one of them. He has worked according to the plan laid down by his predecessors. I have actually watched him continue selflessly. I wish you well, my son.”

Sanwo-Olu, who is contesting on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has received a series of bipartisan endorsements recently.

She noted that the Lagos governorship election, this time round, would be keenly contested. “It will not be like the previous elections in the state,” she said.
