The leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC and Trade Union Congress, TUC, in Lagos State, have endorsed the presidential candidate of APC, Bola Tinubu and Governor Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State for second term in office.

At the rally held at the Police College, GRA, Lagos, hundreds of workers thronged the venue in support of Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second term bid in office.

In his address at the labour rally for his endorsement, Governor Sanwo-Olu stated:”I want to recognize all the workers including those in the private sector. This is Lagos, the center of excellence. I want to say you have chosen well.

“You have come out in large number and I want to assure you that we are coming back bigger, stronger and better for the general people of Lagos State. We will ensure the value of your lives is not compromised.

“I want to thank all of you over this great endorsement. We will not take it for granted. What this tells us is that we must do a lot more. That’s when your lives and that of your children will be better. We will not disappoint you.”

He urged the workers to go out and take the campaign to their respective neighbours, saying :”Let them know that this is the real rally because you are the workers, you are out strength.”

The TUC Chairman in Lagos State, Comrade Gbenga Ekundayo said: “There is no need beating about the bush. You have heard it well. Each time we meet Mr Governor, he responds to us. Democracy is about inclusion.

“We have tested Mr Governor and we have found him to have listening ears and a large heart to accommodate us,” Ekundayo stated.

Speaking at the rally, Funmilayo Sessi, chair of the NLC in Lagos, said they want Sanwo-Olu to continue in office because of his ‘good works’.

“We made the decision before today but we only came to display our solidarity with him publicly. What we have done right in our house, we are showing to the world,” Sessi said.

The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) across the state, let by Comrade Akintoye Hassan, also threw their weight behind Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second bid in office.
