A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ayodele Adewale, has revealed that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, a frontline aspirant of the party ahead its governorship primaries, is one of those behind the success story of Lagos.
Adewale, a former council chairman, said Sanwo-Olu is part of the team that comes up with the ideas while Governor Akinwunmi Ambode only executes.
In an interview with Premium Times, Adewale said the residents of Lagos did not vote for Ambode in 2015, but for Lagos.
“Don’t be beclouded. Ambode rode on the platform which is APC. Lagos people voted for the platform not Ambode.
“What made you think Babajide Sanwo-Olu will not perform better? Sanwo-Olu is part of the top principal actors behind the Lagos success.
“He is part of the team bringing ideas while Ambode executes. So, whatever decision I take, it is my conviction, having gauged the three aspirants, that Mr Sanwoolu can do more and better for Lagos.
“He has campaigned to me, and his vision for Lagos is superb. Just the way I am campaigning to my people here in Amuwo Odofin.

“We have about eight candidates, it now depends on the people to choose their preferred candidate. Let’s wait for the primaries and see if we will win or not.
“I have not said Ambode has not performed to the best of his ability but my conviction on Sanwo-Olu is that, he has better programmes and ability to surpass that of Akinwunmi Ambode,” Adewale said.
