Faleke, who also collected the Presidential Expression of Interest and Nominations forms for APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was accompanied to the party’s secretariat by former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Babachir Lawal and hundreds of members of the Tinubu Support Groups.

The Governorship Expression of Interest and Nominations forms were presented to Governor Sanwo-Olu at the Lagos Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja by the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr Tayo Ayinde.

The Governor has also received endorsement from prominent individuals and groups in the last few weeks, demanding that he should throw his hat into the ring for another term based on his remarkable performance during his first tenure in office.
