Muyiwa Fafowora has emerged as the governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Lagos State ahead of 2019 elections.
The Chairman of the electoral committee, Olugbenga Shobowale, who conducted the election by affirmation, asked those who were in support of Fafowora ’s candidature to affirm by voice vote.
He declared Fafowora winner after the affirmation by yes votes on Saturday, at the party secretariat in Lagos.
Fafowora, a former PDP Chieftain in Ibeju-Lekki, thanked delegates for their votes and for accepting him wholeheartedly.
He said he had the people of Lagos at heart and would work to transform the state to a desirable one if given the mandate in 2019.
”This means that there is a lot of work to do ahead of 2019. There is a lot to be done to make Lagos State our dream state.
”Presently, there is insecurity, decayed infrastructure, collapsed health system and challenges everywhere.
”We are going to do a lot of work, especially at the grassroots. They are the ones feeling the failure of leadership in the state,” Fafowora said.
He urged Lagos residents to support ADC so that it would bring the real and desired change.
