2023 APC ticket: Lagos will support Tinubu – Sanwo-Olu to Amaechi
On Thursday, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu hosted Rotimi Amaechi, a presidential candidate for 2023, in Marina.
The Minister of Transportation is touring states in support of his bid on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sanwo-Olu informed the former Rivers Governor that Lagos will back the party’s leader, Bola Tinubu, for the ticket.
The governor stated that, while Amaechi is competent to lead Nigeria, the state supports Tinubu.
“I have sheer regard and respect for our leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; I have been a direct beneficiary of his leadership.
“I have been part of his cabinet and continue to toe that line of leadership Asiwaju stands for. But because we are not God, God himself will help the course of this country.
“You are eminently qualified, you are very experienced in this journey. But for a whole lot of us in Lagos, Asiwaju continues to be our rallying point.
“I certainly know what your pedigree is and what you have done. I will be unfair if I don’t say that. I wish you all the very best”, Sanwo-Olu said.
Earlier, Amaechi said considering experience, he would be a president that would protect the interest of all Nigerians irrespective of tribe or religion.
