Ahead of the 2019 general elections, All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu paid a courtesy visit to the home of first civilian governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande on Monday.
Jakande who blessed the candidacy of Sanwo-Olu in his Jakande’s house in Ilupeju, said the APC candidate has the charisma and profile to occupy the seat of power in the state ahead of other candidates.
Meanwhile, Sanwo-Olu disclosed that the 89-year-old former governor remains one of his role model and was delighted to have drawn inspiration from him.
“As the first executive governor of Lagos State, Baba Jakande is well-respected and he is someone all of us look up to for political direction.
“He is an arrowhead of progressive politics and constitutional democracy. Coming to greet him in this festive period is appropriate.
“But, I am also using the opportunity of this visit to draw from his experience and seek his blessing, as a leader, in my intention to govern our dear state.”
