A governorship aspirant of the APC in Lagos, Jide Sanwo-Olu, on Sunday said he had a strong conviction that God had prepared him to be the next governor of the state.
Sanwo-Olu made the statement at Lagos City Hall while speaking at the formal launch of his governorship bid.
Members of the National Assembly, council chairmen, and other chieftains were at the declaration. Sen. Gbenga Ashafa, the former minister, Ademola Seriki, a federal lawmaker, Rotimi Agunsoye, were among those present.
It was a carnival atmosphere at the well-attended declaration as party members danced and interrupted Sanwo-Olu’s speech with the chants of “incoming, incoming!”
Sanwo-Olu said he believed God was moulding him to become the next governor of Lagos by making it possible to have an understanding of government through series of private and public service responsibilities.
