The governorship ambition of former Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of Lagos State, Supo Sasore, SAN, received major boosts this week as major traditional institutions in the state gave their backings for his aspiration.
At its meeting over the weekend, Lagos Traditional White Cap chiefs endorse the governorship aspiration of Sasore saying that they see him as one of them.
“His father was the late Sasore of Lagos and a very prominent member of the white cap chiefs. He is qualified to run for the office of the state Governor and we are offering our full backing for his aspiration,” source from the meeting told our correspondent.
This medium also learnt that the traditional chiefs were also happy that apart from being a son of the soil, Sasore is also a devout Christian, one of the major criteria being pushed forward for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Also, at the weekend, the League of Awori Traditional Rulers also pitched their tent with Sasore.
At their meeting which took place at the palace of the Ojon of Ejigbo, Oba Morufu Ojoola, the monarchs said they support Sasore because he is a true Lagosian and devout Christian.
