…as NGO hails decision
By BENJAMIN OMOIKE
The Secretary of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC), the highest decision making organ of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Alhaji Mutiu Are, has said that the commendable performance of the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, was responsible for his endorsement for a second term in office.
Alhaji Are stated that Sanwo-olu’s administration had impacted positively on the people of the state.
“The people of the state are positively feeling the impact of his administration and his achievements are obvious and physically visible for people to see,” the GAC scribe explained.
Alhaji Are also described Governor Sanwo-Olu as a good team player, who is not only popular among the political class but also enjoying huge acceptance from the populace.
“He has been able to endear himself to the political class while also building a solid and huge acceptance with the general public,” he said.
Alhaji Are praised Governor Sanwo-Olu for making the party proud through his performance in office, which has made the people revive their love for the party.
“He has done well and he has proven to be a good disciple of our great leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We are proud of him and the party is also happy with him,” he said.
On Monday, April 18, 2022, the GAC announced the endorsement of Governor Sanwo-Olu for a second term in office during its meeting, which took place on the same day.
Meanwhile, in a related development, an all women Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), the Women for Change Initiatives (WFCI), has described as commendable and praise-worthy, the decision of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC), of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Lagos State, to endorse Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for a second term in office.
Commending the Council for the decision, leader of the NGO, Barr. Eyitope Success-Adekunle, expressed satisfaction of her organisation, saying, the step taken by the Council was a right one towards the right direction because it was in line with the thoughts of the overwhelming population of the people of the state.
According to the woman activist, it would have been a great disservice to the generality of the good people of Lagos State and to the Governor himself, if the GAC’s decision had been otherwise, hailing the body for its thoughtfulness and sound decision made at the appropriate time.
The woman lawyer cum activist, was of the conviction that, “the declaration of endorsement for the governor’s second term in office will go a long way in putting the minds of a lot of residents at rest,” confessing that, the people have been waiting anxiously for that good news and now that it has finally come, the governor would also be able to concentrate more, knowing full well that the first hurdle has been crossed.
The NGO boss, therefore, tasked all the groups and organisations yearning for more good governance post 2023, as represented by Sanwo-Olu, to prepare the ground well for the governor’s formal declaration which they have been waiting for, reminding that, “it is not over until it is over properly.”
Against this forgoing, the woman activist, therefore, urged the governor to keep on fixing his gaze on the ball as usual, assuring that, “we have never been doubtful of your capability to coast home well now and surpass your performance now, when you eventually come back for the second term.”
