THUMBS-UP FROM SSPUFAPC … Lagos Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu gets Nigeria’s South-Southerners’ support for second term.

Ardent supporters of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) under the aegis of the South-South People’s United Forum of the APC (SSPUFAPC) have made a passionate appeal to eligible voters in Lagos State, urging them to troop out in their numbers on Saturday, March 11, 2023, and reelect incumbent Lagos Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for a second term.
The SSPUFAPC comprises indigenes of the six states of Nigeria’s oil-rich South-South geopolitical zone resident in Lagos State, South-West Nigeria.
The six South-South Nigeria states include Edo, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Cross River and Akwa Ibom states.
Mr. Sanwo-Olu, according to the SSPUFAPC, has excelled in his first term that is rounding off and is, therefore, deserving of an immediate second and final four-year to enable him to continue and consolidate on what portends an enduring legacy of great service delivery as helmsman of Nigeria’s great commercial hub.
The SSPUFAPC’s unstinting affirmation of abiding confidence in the capacity of Sanwo-Olu as Lagos Governor was conveyed in a statement issued Sunday in Lagos on behalf of the Coordinator, SSPUFAPC Lagos Central Senatorial District, Mr. Gibraltar Njowusi, by the Media Adviser, Mr. Obiajulu Agu.
“Without a shadow of doubt, His Excellency, Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, has, indeed, been excellent in delivering service to the good people of Lagos State, without bias or discrimination whatsoever.
“A true cosmopolitan in words and actions, Governor Sanwo-Olu runs an all-inclusive administration that is sensitive to the broad spectrum and sensibly caters to the demographics defining the veritable potpourri of peoples that have for ages been part of Lagos and will remain so in the foreseeable future and further down the line.
“I declare with every sense of responsibility that it is a source of immeasurable joy for every South-Southerner, irrespective of political or any other affiliations, that Governor Sanwo-Olu, as part of his administration’s numerous development-driven decisions, picked an illustrious Scion of the South-South, Mr. Samuel Avwerosuo Egube, as the Honourable Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Lagos State. It is an appointment well merited; and the Commissioner has been most positively impactful in his superintending the crucial Ministry of Economic Planning and Budget as a trusted appointee of the Governor, who is unabashedly keyed into infrastructural and human capacity development.
“The South-South truly appreciates Mr. Sanwo-Olu for the appointment of Mr. Egube, who the SSPUFAPC is highly honoured to have as the Lagos State Apex Leader. We eagerly look forward to having our beloved brother reappointed in the second tenure of Governor Sanwo-Olu. We are most grateful to His Excellency for other appointees from the South-South who are serving in his administration. We are also quite expectant of additional numbers of fresh appointees of South-South extraction joining our brothers and sisters already in the employ of the Lagos State when Governor Sanwo-Olu secures his much-needed second term,” Njowusi said.
He added: “Therefore, those of us of South-South Nigeria extraction, who have pitched our tents with the APC, unhesitatingly and wholeheartedly, endorse Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, our beloved BOS, for another term and an uninterrupted continuation of of His Excellency’s success story of efficiently piloting the affairs of the Mega City.
“I have the unanimous mandate of the SSPUFAPC to muster all South-Southerners under the banner of ensuring a landslide victory for Governor Sanwo-Olu in next Saturday’s gubernatorial election in Lagos State.
“If you cherish the continuation of dynamic responsible governance in the ‘Centre of Excellence’, then it is only natural that you and other eligible voters must step out with your Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVCs) and endorse Governor Sanwo-Olu for a second term by voting massively in his favour. He has proven consistently that the intricate art of governing a complex entity such as Lagos State is best realised and sustained by faithfully applying that humane touch; a gift His Excellency is abundantly blessed with and widely acknowledged that he brings to bear in his words and actions.”
According to the SSPUFAPC chieftain, Lagos is a melting pot that tolerates an accommodates all who mean well for her development and progress.
The Igbanke, Edo State-born Njowusi, who is the incumbent Secretary to the Apapa Local Government, declared that it was this home-for-all essence of Lagos that fortuitously placed him, a so-called non-indigene, in that office.
Njowusi explained that the appointment has positioned him as a long-term resident of Apapa, who is very familiar with the neighbourhood, to make hands-on contributions, which described as his “modest quota”, to promoting strategic developmental efforts in the Ports City Council in particular, and Lagos State and the larger Nigerian society in general through the third tier of government.
“The SSPUFAPC is as a matter of fact urging all registered voters in possession of their PVCs and eligible to cast their votes in Lagos State to troop out en masse to help reelect Governor Sanwo-Olu, in order to have him continue in his flow of good works,” the SSPUFAPC Lagos Central Senatorial District Coordinator said.
He added: “The SSPUFAPC is also appealing to the electorate in Lagos State to vote overwhelmingly for the APC candidates into the State House of Assembly elections also holding on Saturday, March 11, 2023. The party must be in control of the next state legislature to be inaugurated in order to have the proper interface between the three arms of government that will enable the Executive, as represented by the Governor, continue on the track of driving the robust and seamless governance that Lagos State requires to sustain the humonguous developmental strides.”
