Gentlemen of the press
Distinguished ladies and gentle men
I wish to welcome you all to this press conference convened by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) Deputy Governorship candidate for Lagos State, Olori Animashaun Morenike Abeni to formally declare her support for Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu’s re-election .
We reached the decision sequence to our thorough analysis of all the governorship candidates including our own, their antecedents, pedigree, experience, manifestos and broad acceptance across the state
From the fore-going, there is no doubt that Governor Jide Sanwo-Olu and Dr. Quadri Hamzat combination stand head and shoulder above the rest.
We cannot sacrifice the various land-mark achievements of the present administration scattered all over the state on the altar of bitter politicking.
The governor’s consistency as a progressive democrat is worthy of emulation by all
We observed at a close range his energetic campaign through the nooks, corners and crannies of the state.
He has delivered on his social contract with the good people of Lagos through the famed THEMES mantra.
It’s worthy of note that he literally saved the country from the scourge of Covid 19 through pro-active measures that underscored his reponsive and responsible attributes. Among others, massive road construction, investments in education, healthcare services, the environment, youth empowerment, tourism, public transportation, housing and science and technology need to be consolidated during his second term.
It makes a whole lot of sense for Lagos State to be in tune with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Presidency at a time like this to achieve our age long desires and lofty aspirations. It is worthy of note that some of the circumstances that threw up a temporary Labour Party relevance are being addressed speedily.
His message of GREATER LAGOS RISING reverberated with all and sundry and we can safely conclude that we have in Sanwo-olu a governor who is resolutely committed to take our state to greater heights in the years ahead.
Lagos State is too important to be entrusted into hands of ill-prepared , opportunistic and inexperienced political neophytes.
A vote for Sanwo-Olu will indeed be an endorsement for continuity and greater development.
From the fore-going and many more, I , Olori Animashaun Morenike Abeni, wish to formally step down as the deputy governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and declare my support for the ruling APC candidates.
We wish to seize this opportunity to inform and urge all our supporters across Lagos State to vote massively on Saturday the 11th of March for Babajide Olusola Sanwo-olu as governor and his deputy Quadri Obafemi Hanzat to continue on the path of taking our state to an enviable height.
Once again, thank you for coming.
