The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State are not taking the 2019 governorship election for granted.

They have inaugurated what they called the Independent Campaign Group (ICG) in Lagos Mainland Local Government.

The job of the group across wards is to galvanise support for the APC candidate in the 2019 election, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The coordinators and their executive members at both ward and local government levels took Oath of Allegiance.

Mr Adekunle Adebanjo, Coordinator, Babajide Sanwo-Olu Vanguard Independent Campaign Organisation (ICG) for Lagos Mainland Local Government Area, said at the event that the group had the mandate to mobilise massive support for Sanwo-Olu.

Adebanjo said that the ICG would embark on house-to-house and street to street campaign to sell the APC candidate to the people.

He said that the emergence of Sanwo-Olu as next governor of Lagos State remained certain.

“No one will regret voting Sanwo-Olu; Lagosians will definitely reap dividends of democracy in an uncommon way.

“We promise to deliver huge votes for Sanwo-Olu in 2019 from Lagos Mainland as we inaugurate independent ward executives to commence house-to-house and street-to-street campaign,” Adebanjo said.

In his address, Mr Dayo Israel, the Deputy Coordinator, Youths and Students Mobilisation, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu Campaign Organisation (BOSCO), said Sanwo-Olu had robust programmes to take the state to the next level.

Israel, who urged the coordinators and party faithful to increase voters’ mobilisation for Sanwo-Olu, said that he had met with the APC candidate and found out that he meant well for the people.

“I don’t just follow anybody, but I have sat with Sanwo-Olu and he has promised to create 100, 000 jobs for youths annually,” he said.
