Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives has endorsed Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second term in office ahead of 2023.
Gbajabiamila made the statement on Tuesday in a political interview handled by Seun Okinbaloye on Channels TV, affirming Sanwo-Olu had been doing a good job in the governance of Lagos State.
He believes if the difficult situation the country is facing has not affected his performance in the last two years, it is only natural he was allowed to go on with the job and not be distracted.
“Governor Sanwo-Olu has performanced beyond expectations in the last two years as the Governor of Lagos State; I’ll say say he deserves a second term,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Speaker representing Surulere 1 Federal Constituency in the Green Chambers of the National Assembly dismissed rumours making the rounds on his ambition to contest for the Lagos’ governorship seat in 2023.
He said that he had “no immediate plan” to contest the seat as the task before him as Number four citizen in the country was enormous and tough enough for him to be distracted by the rumour.”
