Ahead of the governorship election, thirty-six (36) members of the Lagos State House of Assembly have endorsed Jide Sanwo-Olu as their candidate in the forthcoming primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC)  in the state.

In a statement, Adefunmilayo Tejuoso, the Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Strategy and Security said the decision was taken at a parliamentary meeting of the lawmakers, just a day before the governorship primaries of the party, on Saturday.

“The lawmakers stated that they were in agreement with the leadership of the party and the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) which had earlier endorsed Sanwo-Olu for the governorship ticket,” the statement read.

However, four (4) of the forty (40) members of the house, did not sign the endorsement.

The lawmakers duly signed the statement announcing the decision. The House Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa chaired the meeting.
