That Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been re-elected as the governor of Lagos State is an established fact.
Sanwo-Olu defeated his challengers, Gbadebo Rhode-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP) and Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran a.k.a Jandor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 18th governorship election to retain his seat.
However, Sanwo-Olu, following his landslide victory, took to his Twitter page to say a big thank you to the electorates.
He wrote; “I’m deeply humbled and grateful for the overwhelming support and trust of the good people of Lagos State. I’m honoured to be re-elected as your governor and pledge to continue to work tirelessly to deliver a better Lagos for all. Thank you for believing in me.”
Reacting to Sanwo-Olu’s tweet, Nigerian music star cum activist, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, took to his Twitter page and lambasted the Governor.
He wrote; “You were not re-elected. You selected yourself. Everybody saw it unfold. You are only deceiving yourselves.”
For those who don’t know, Sanwo-Olu won the election by polling a total vote of 762,134 while Rhode-Vivour scored 312,329 and Jandor had 62,449 votes.
