Lagos Senator From Ogun Backs Sanwo-Olu Against Ambode

The chairman Senate Committee on Local Content, Senator Solomon Adeola (Lagos West) has joined the clamour for Babajide Sanwo-Olu to fly the APC’s flag in the 2019 Lagos governorship election.


Senator Adeola, who is from Ogun state and wanted to contest for Governo
rship in the state but lost out to Governor Amosun's power play and immediately returned to Lagos for Senate, at a meeting with APC supporters in his Ikeja Office, said his decision to back Sanwo-Olu was informed by the wishes of his constituents and APC leaders in his senatorial district as well as in Lagos.

“As we approach the 2019 general election, we must carry all our members along. Whatever the party directs is what we are going to do and I am aligning myself with the wishes of my followers who have all bought into the idea and vision of fielding Sanwo-Olu as the candidate of APC in Lagos State come 2019” he stated.

Adeola urged his followers and supporters to vote for Sanwo-Olu and the party’s position in the other primaries as they become known.

“Let everyone who has ears know that I am for Babajide Sanwo-Olu for governor. The criticism against Sanwo-Olu is just a distraction. The leaders of the party have spoken and we have aligned ourselves with their decision,” Adeola said.
