The Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has finally got an approval for his second term in office as the state governor.
Recall that, there had been widespread speculations if Sanwo-Olu will get a second term nod from the political godfathers, or face the same fate as the former governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode who did not win the favour of the state’s political leadership.
However, at the meeting held in Lagos state on Monday, sources said, the Lagos State Governors’ Advisory Council (GAC) “has given nod to the second term bid of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.”
This was also confirmed in a tweet by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, who tweeted,
“Breaking news: Lagos GAC gives nod to Governor @jidesanwoolu’s second term bid. The Governors’ Advisory Council at a meeting in Lagos today gave pass mark to Sanwo-Olu for staying through to the developmental agenda of Lagos. Congratulations dear boss!”
