Look back and do better– IPAC advises Gov Sanwo-Olu
Mr Olusegun Mobolaji, the Lagos State Chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), on Monday advised Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to re-evaluate his performance and work better to achieve a greater Lagos.
Mobolaji gave the advice while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the INEC on Monday declared Sanwo-Olu as the winner of the poll, defeating all his 15 opponents with 762,134 votes for a second term in office.
He said that considering the rate at which the APC lost to Labour Party (LP) in the Feb. 25th Presidential election, Gov Sanwo-Olu must work harder to rekindle the confidence of the people.
Mobolaji also congratulated the governor on his re-election for a second term in office.
” I congratulate Gov. Sanwo-Olu on his victory in the just concluded election.
” This time, I will advise him to look backwards, look at those things that affected him and his party that made Labour Party to win in Lagos in the last Presidential election and do better.
” If people are happy with his work, he doesn’t need to beg them, force or create scenes before they vote for him, he will definitely get it on a fair ground,’’ he said.
” I implore him to make good legacies, let him do more on whatever he has been doing before, that is good, and those things that are bad, he needs to look into it.
” We need a great and better Lagos, regardless of party. My concern is to achieve a greater and better Lagos,” he said.
Mobolaji expressed displeasure over violence that was experienced in some parts of the state during the elections as well as vote buying and voter apathy.
He said that ‘’these issues really call for concern”.
” I don’t expect our elections to still have this level of violence, we should not be experiencing vote buying and even voter apathy.
” The percentage of response I observed in this election is not what I expect.
” Going forward, I will advise Lagos residents that if they love a particular leader and want him to remain in government, then they should do the right thing not the wrong.
” I advise Lagos residents to sit up, give constructive criticism, we should not leave the governor alone, we need to do it with him, work with him to achieve a greater Lagos.
” Also, let’s start preparing for the next elections now, to curb voter apathy, stop violence and thuggery during elections,” he said.
