Tinubu’s, Sanwo-Olu’s ambitions get boost
Bola Tinubu and Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the presidential candidate and governorship flagbearer respectively of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have received an endorsement from the Yam Dealers and Traders Association, Lagos chapter.
A statement by the Independent Campaign Council for the candidates said the Lagos Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat, and the campaign’s director-general Tayo Ayinde received the trade union’s members when they visited to pledge their support for the two politicians.
Hamzat said, “The coming general elections are crucial for our party and State. We must show our strength and numbers, because we are not just going to vote; we want to humiliate the opposition parties with a very wide margin.”
He added, “We have over seven million voters in Lagos alone and our target is to deliver five million votes to elect our presidential candidate. By the support we have received from your association, we believe the margin is attainable.”
