“The APC candidates are people who can be trusted. So, we must all support Tokunbo Abiru to win the senatorial election and Obafemi Saheed for the Lagos State House of Assembly. We must all work hard to ensure that they win the by-elections.”

Sanwo-Olu while commending the LCDA executive chairman, Funmilayo Akande Muhammed and her team, pledged that APC would not stopped in delivering dividends of democracy to the masses.
He said:”While a project such as this is really a commendable initiative, as it will be of great impact on the work force at large, it is also important for us to develop policies and initiatives that will be geared towards supporting and empowering the people especially our youths, women and the physically challenged. With the recent incidence witnessed in our State, it has become evident that we need to work rigorously across all levels of government to ensure we do more to invest in our youths and give them the type of governance they will indeed be proud of”.
