The race to pick the Governorship ticket for the All Progressives Congress and hopefully occupy the seat of Government in Lagos State became narrowed today, as Jide Sanwo-Olu meet the press at Water Crest Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos.

The Governorship hopeful declared that as a proper Lagosian, he believes in the wholistic development of every part of Lagos State and will run an inclusive government.

“My name is Jide Sanwo-Olu, I am 53years old. As a PROPER Lagosian, I believe we can make our Lagos a better place where we can improve the lives of our people.

“Our Government will be a Government that LISTENS, LISTENS and LISTENS. I will communicate properly when we will do a formal declaration, where my people will receive me officially,” he said in his statement.

Addressing issues surrounding his possible step down from the race after the intervention of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of APC, Sanwoola-Olu said, “This man, Asiwaju, is a true bred democrat, he wants democracy to work, he would allow this primaries to go on peacefully through direct primaries.

“Saying AsiwajuTinubu will call me to back down will not happen, he is a Democrat, he wants democracy to work, he is our Leader, he is the National Leader, he believes in democracy.”

Sanwo-Olu promised to run an inclusive government that listens to the yearnings of the people.

“I will run an inclusive Government, we will ensure that we have a participatory Government, we will always listen to our people. I will not be a Governor of Lagos Island or a Governor of Lagos Central, Lagos East, I will be a Governor for all… Our Government will be a Government that listens more and talks less, our Govt will run an open-door policy,” he said.
