Any Party Contesting Against APC In Lagos State is Wasting Time – Wike, Shuns Jandor endorses Sanwolu for Second Term

The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has stated that any party that is contesting against the All Progressives Party in Lagos State is wasting its time.

Sanwo-Olu’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, disclosed Wike’s statement on his Twitter handle on Tuesday.

He wrote, “Any party contesting against APC in Lagos is wasting time. Sanwo-Olu is a super-performing Governor. – Gov. Nyesom Wike.”

He endorsed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for a second term in office.

Wike who was the Special Guest of Honour at the 2022 National Women’s Conference organised by the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO) with the theme ‘Spring Forth, Stand Out’ in Victoria Island.

He also donated N300 million to COWLSO.

According to Wike, Governor Sanwo-Olu’s performance in office has earned him a second term.

He commended him for giving women the opportunity to serve in various capacities in the state, especially the judiciary.

Wike noted that the involvement of women in politics and decision-making in Lagos is helping the State continue to set the pace.

He expressed amazement at all COWLSO had been able to achieve and promised to replicate all he has learnt from the conference.

“By the grace of God, you will be a second-term Governor. Lagos State is doing better than other states in this country because Lagos has allowed women to participate in governance in various capacities.

” I am very happy to participate in this conference. I don’t play politics of ethnicity. Even if Sanwo-Olu is in my party but is not doing well, I wouldn’t have come. I do not regret saying I am in support of you,” Wike told Sanwo-Olu.

Wike added that his administration has emulated Lagos by ensuring a woman became Deputy Governor in 2015 as no woman had ever served in that capacity since the state was created in the 60s.

He added that all 22 local governments in Rivers State have female vice chairmen.

He also lauded Lagos First Lady, Mrs. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, for the several projects COWLSO has done under her chairmanship in the last three years.
