2019: Battle For Power Begins Between Sanwo-Olu, Agbaje and Others


Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressive Congress and Jimi Agbaje of the Peoples Democratic Party, as well as the Governorship candidates of over 80 political parties for the 2019 elections, will formally start their campaigns today.
No fewer than 782 candidates will contest for governorship seats in 28 states of the federation, according to findings from the Independent Electoral Commission.
The INEC timetable and schedule of activities for the 2019 general elections indicated that governorship campaigns will officially commence on December 1.
Section 99(1) of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) stipulates 90 days for campaigns before polling day. Findings by our correspondent revealed that many of the candidates will launch their campaigns today.
The presidential and National Assembly campaigns were formally flagged off on November 18.
There are over 70 presidential candidates and thousands of National Assembly candidates cleared by INEC.
Already Sanwo-Olu was in Lagos East, Epe to listen to the wishes and expectations of the people in his quest to govern the state.
The monarchs, who attended the meeting in their full royal paraphernalia, said the gesture by the APC candidate as “sign of nobility”.
Former Minister of State for Defence and Nigeria’s former Ambassador to Ghana, Sen. Musiliu Obanikoro said the delegation was in Epe to inform the monarchs of Sanwo-Olu’s readiness to kick off his governorship campaign and to seek their blessings in line with tradition.
He said: “Your son, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who needs no introduction is set to commence a journey that will take our state to a greater level and we consider it important we seek your blessings, as elders, before we embark on this journey, so that we can have a smooth campaign.”
Sanwo-Olu said it was important for him to make it clear that Epe would continue to enjoy the good governance of the APC-led government, noting that his administration would not discriminate against any part of the state.
He emphasised that ongoing projects in the Epe division would not be abandoned.
‘‘It makes no economic sense for any government to stop what the previous administration started. I can assure you that once we get to power, we’d ensure that all ongoing projects in Epe will be completed before we move on to start new ones.’’ Sanwo-Olu stated.
Applauding the turn-out of supporters in the division, Sanwo-Olu pledged that if elected, his administration will place a premium on projects that will impact positively on the lives of the people.
‘‘I must say emphatically that we are impressed by the huge turn-out of supporters today. It is a testimony that Epe remains consistently progressive and will always stand by a party that has consistently given the State a good governance.’’ Sanwo-Olu added.
