The Campaign plan and promotional materials for the re-election bid of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat in next year’s election have been unveiled to the media in Lagos.
Addressing journalists from the traditional, online and digital media in Ikeja, Governor Sanwo-Olu who was represented by the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Gbenga Omotoso said the second term bid is themed “A Greater Lagos-Rising”
According to the Governor, the theme is premised on the pledge of a greater Lagos and the achievements of the administration in the last three and a half years, evident in all sectors of the economy, most especially in the six pillars of its development agenda, with the acronym, T.H.E.M.E.S.
He said, “All of our campaign assets capture the place of the audacity of the Spirit of Lagos in the rising of the City.
The campaign assets are not some forms of self-adulation but fitting credit to the contributions of Lagosians, especially the youth, to the height Lagos has attained today. This campaign is not about Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu and his team alone. It is a tribute to all our youths who are putting Lagos on the global map. This campaign is a celebration of the collective progress we have made in the last three and half years – against all odds”. “It is, also, a vivid reflection of what to expect in the coming days. . “RISING” is the proof of DOING. “RISING” moves us from our initial statement of intent, “For A Greater Lagos” to A CITY THAT IS RISING AND TRANSFORMING BEFORE OUR VERY EYES. When we say, A GREATER LAGOS RISING, we are drawing the attention of citizens to the positive changes taking place all over Lagos. We are making an affirmative statement about the growth of our economy, the breath-taking rebuilding of Lagos and the fresh hope of citizens following the reopening of the economy after Covid-19. A new chapter in the development of our State just flipped open before our very eyes. LET’S WRITE A NEW HISTORY. LET’S RISE TO A NEW PHASE OF OUR HISTORY AS WE COLLECTIVELY AFFIRM THAT, A GREATER LAGOS IS RISING.
Buttressing this, the Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr.Sam Egube, who is in charge of deploying resources affirmed that in spite of the numerous challenges, the Sanwo-Olu’s administration had been able to steer the economy into enviable heights with legacy projects across all the Local governments, as well as the release of a thirty year development plan and expressed hope that Lagosians would in their usual way support the Governor with their votes.
On his part, the Director General, APC Lagos Governorship Campaign Council, Senator Ganiu Solomon, commended the exemplary leadership of Governor Sanwo-Olu noting that the Governor had indeed delivered on his campaign promises to Lagosians.
The re-election campaign was activated with the release of two theme songs, while sensitization materials have been deployed online and physically across roads, the waterways and the air waves, some of the campaign teams conducted a multi-dimensional roadshow, comprising power bikers, activation rigs and mobile advertising vans from Ikeja to the Lagos House, Marina, where they were received by Governor Sanwo-Olu himself.
