July 24th has been slated for the local government chairmanship election in Lagos. Meanwhile, the State governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has charged candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming local government polls in the state to replicate the political victories of the party being witnessed across the country in the exercise.
The governor gave this charge, on Sunday, at the handing over of party flags to the 20 Local Government and 37 Local Council Development Areas chairmanship candidates ahead of the council poll at the party state secretariat located in Ogba area of the state, saying the APC’s current successes across the country, culminating in the mass defections of political top echelons to the party showed its acceptance by the people.
“This is a very important and significant event, which is the official handing over of our flags to all of our candidates. Well, we are handing over the flags to the chairmen and the vice-chairmen, of course, supported ably by the party’s LGA chairmen. So that they all can go back and do the same with their councilors and ensure that we have a resounding victory on the 24th of July, 2021.
“They are to go forth to the various local governments and campaign in all the nooks and crannies of the state. We are believing that this significant event will signpost our seriousness in our next local government election. And we are certain that the success we are currently enjoying at the national, states will also be translated at the local government elections as well,” the governor said.
