Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has informed a presidential hopeful, Rotimi Ameachi, that the ambition of ll Progressives Congress leader, Bola Tinubu, is the “rallying point” of the state.
The governor spoke on Thursday in Marina, Lagos, where he received the minister of transportation.
Amaechi and Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos, are APC presidential hopefuls.
Sanwo-Olu, who wished the minister well in his presidential ambition, noted that he’s eminently qualified for the top job.
The Lagos governor, however, said he is a “direct beneficiary” of Tinubu’s leadership, and as such, the state will support him to become Nigeria’s next president.
He said, “I have sheer regard and respect for our leader, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu. I have been a direct beneficiary of his leadership. I have been part of his cabinet.
“Personally I continue to tow that line of leadership and what he stands for.
“I want to say to you that you’re eminently qualified and I want to wish you well in this journey. Clearly, for all of us in Lagos State, Asiwaju continues to be our rallying point, but the country is our country and we must continue to see it as the one that is indivisible and one that we all rally round.
“I certainly know too well what your pedigree is and what you have done.”
