Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the winner of the Lagos All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary, has thanked his supporters for electing him as the party’s flagbearer ahead of the 2019 governorship poll in the state.
In a video after the poll on Tuesday night, Sanwo-Olu also appreciated Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, for allowing the direct primary to ‘come to stay.’
Sanwo-Olu said: “I think it is important that I also thank the executive governor of Lagos State, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode for a good fight. I want to thank him for giving us the opportunity, to let this direct primary come to stay and we were able to have it.
“I want to thank him. I want to wish him the very best in the remainder of his tenure as the executive governor of Lagos State.”
