Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has endorsed Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy Femi Hamzat for a second term.
Mr Tinubu held up both men’s hand after a Lagos APC stakeholders meeting held at the Adeyemi Bero in the Alausa area of the State.
The Commissioner for Information, Gbenga Omotoso, made this known on Friday.
This followed speculations that Sanwo-Olu may be denied a second term in office.
“LET’S GO: Asiwaju endorsing Governor Sanwo-Olu for another term at an APC stakeholder meeting today. Thank you all for all your loving thoughts,” he posted.
There had been speculations that Mr Sanwo-Olu wasn’t guaranteed a second term ticket of the party.
Tinubu’s endorsement may have put paid to such rumours.
Mr Tinubu, who is also vying to fly the APC’s flags in the upcoming presidential elections is a former Lagos State Governor and popularly believed to be the state’s ultimate political godfather.
