The 2023 governorship election in Lagos State which produced Babajide Sanwo-Olu as winner may have come and gone, but the joy of victory remains evergreen in the memory of Lagosians.

Recall that the All Progressives Congress (APC) lost the February 25 presidential election in Lagos, the home state of its then candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

It lost to Labour Party’s Peter Obi who won 12 states including FCT in the presidential polls.

This however raised concern within the ranks of the governing APC, leading to the setting up of Special Intervention Committee by the then chairman of the party, Abdullahi Adamu.

The committee was headed by former Minister of Health, Sen. Olorunnimbe Mamora while the National Director General of APC Professionals Council, Dr. Seyi Bamigbade was the Director Communications and Strategies


Speaking at an agricultural empowerment scheme organised by National Image in partnership with The Mandate Movement in Lagos on Tuesday, Dr. Bamigbade said the victory of Gov. Sanwo-Olu was an affirmation of the confidence of people of the state on his administration.

He expressed gratitude to Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, National Chairman The Mandate Movement, Cardinal James Odunmabaku, Chief of Staff to Lagos State Governor, Tayo Ayinde and several other chieftains of the party for providing technical support that gave APC victory on the March 18 governorship election in the state.

He also thanked all members of the intervention committee who worked tirelessly to ensure that APC won the governorship election.

Dr. Bamigbade thanked the firms for the agricultural intervention which he said is a major boost to President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope agenda especially in the area of reduction of poverty and hunger through food security.

He also appealed to Nigerians to exercise more patience with the federal government as efforts are being made to tackle the cost-of-living challenges facing the country, especially the increasing prices of food items.
