Concrete steps were taken towards the actualisation of the second term bid of Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, when he picked the governorship Nomination and Expression of Interest forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday in Abuja.
Eleven days ago, the influential Governance Advisory Council of the APC in the state had unanimously endorsed Sanwo-Olu’s intention to run for the second term.
In Abuja on Friday, the forms were picked at the APC’s national secretariat by a member of the House of Representatives, representing Ikeja Federal Constituency, Hon. James Faleke.
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.
