New Poll emerges, suggests who wins Gubernatorial elections in Lagos

An independent survey conducted among Lagos residents on their likely choice in the forthcoming governorship election has shown that the incumbent, Babajide Sanwo-Olu will most likely retain his position.

According to report, majority of residents in the Centre of Excellence are determined to set aside ethnic sentiments and political biases to return Sanwo-Olu to office.

They said his track records, proven ability and experience in handling governance stood him shoulder high above his challengers.

A respondent, in Lagos Island area, said though she is not a member of the All Progressives Congress APC and neither a fan of President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but that she will not throw out the baby with the birth water.

Another respondent, a trader in the Ladipo Spare Part Market on the Mainland said he cannot toy with his investments in Lagos, by sacrificing experience for tribal sentiment.

He claimed He voted for the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi in the last election because he is his kinsman, and that for the governorship election, he will be cast his ballot for the incumbent, since Obi is not running for governor.

Most of the respondents admitted that the incumbent has done very well as governor of Lagos, perhaps surpassing all his predecessor.

Many of the respondents expressed great fears about the danger inherent in voting an inexperienced politicians to run the affairs of a Mega City like Lagos.

Mentions were made of the recently completed Lekki Deep Sea port, Imota Rice mill, being the largest of such in sub-saharan Africa.

“The completion of nearly all uncompleted projects of the previous administration, among many other landmark achievements.

“The commitment of the administration to ensuring that Lagos remains secured, especially with the improved funding of the security institutions in the state, also earn Mr. Sanwo-Olu, some ratings above his opponents in the coming election.
