March 18, (THEWILL) – Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has cast his vote at the ongoing governorship and House of Assembly elections in Lagos state.
The governor, who is contesting for a second term in office, voted at PU06, Eiyekole, Adeniji Adele, alongside the first lady.
Speaking with newsmen after casting his vote, Sanwo-Olu commended officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for arriving early and starting the voting process on time.
Sanwo-Olu, who condemned any form of voter intimidation, however, urged security operatives to ensure a peaceful poll in the State.
Governor Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is facing off against other front runners including Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the LP and Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Lagos State gubernatorial election is a major point of interest, as the opposition Labour Party (LP) has gained a strong foothold, following the party’s surprise win in the State at the presidential election.
