Lagos State gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari on his triumphant return to power.
In a statement by his media team on Wednesday, Sanwo-Olu described Mr Buhari’s victory at the poll as “not only well-deserving, but a valid testimony to the fact that Nigerians acknowledge and are appreciative of his reformative initiatives designed to bring forth a better Nigeria.”
Sanwo-Olu said, ”Your Excellency, I heartily congratulate you on your success at the recent presidential election held across Nigeria last weekend. Your landslide victory is a validation and appreciation of your hard work and commitment to the fight against corruption. With this deserved victory, your selflessness and dedication to the services of our motherland have become a new leadership model in Nigeria.
“Expectedly, the reward for good work is more work. So, your victory in the nationwide free and fair election, which is a validation of how your leadership has rekindled hope in millions of Nigerians at home and abroad, has provided yet another valuable opportunity for better Nigeria since democracy has found a permanent place in our country.”
He also described Buhari as the perfect man for the job of taking Nigeria out of the inherited socio-economic quagmire, adding that the evident giant strides of the president in infrastructure, agriculture, security and economic stability should be sustained.
The APC flag bearer called on Nigerians to live in peace and harmony, saying that there is a lot more to benefit from “what unites us than what divides us.’’
Sanwo-Olu emphasised his commitment to run an inclusive government where all ethnic nationalities will have a say in the affairs of the state.
