The Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has begun campaign for his re-election bid at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan, on Saturday.
The governor shared pictures from the event on Twitter, saying, “Lagos, today, it begins. In a powerful show of support, our party leaders and members came out to join me in kicking off the journey to our second term which I have called a #GreaterLagosRising. I am humbled but energised for the vision that was written and is now in motion.
“With exemplary handling of #COVID19 and the many other health emergencies of our current world and the launch of a health insurance scheme that is non-discriminatory and truly citizen-focused, we are positioned to deliver the next best steps. #GreaterLagosRising means more.
“Our campaign will be reinforcing the energy, remarkable audacity & unbroken resilience of our people. Rising is a proof of growth. In our first term under our #ForAGreaterLagos mantra, we have transformed the state, now it is time for a #GreaterLagosRising Rise with us.”
Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu became governor under the platform of the All Progressive Congress after contesting and unexpectedly winning the gubernatorial primaries against incumbent Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State in October 2019.
