2019: Sanwo-Olu Visits Lagos CAN Chairman, Promises To Tackle Poverty

As part of his ongoing consultation with stakeholders in the State, the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has on Tuesday met with the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, Lagos State chapter, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola.

During the courtesy visit, Sanwo-Olu expressed regrets at the level of poverty plaguing the society and assured the clergy that upon election as Governor of Lagos state, he would ensure that plans are geared towards eradicating the vice.

Speaking on his emergence as the APC flagbearer, Sanwo-Olu said, “The moment God says this is the way, there is nothing anyone can do about it. The whole governorship race played out to me like a moving train and there was no stopping it’’.

Alluding to the touch of God in his emergence, Sanwo-Olu noted that he is humbled by the support he has from the APC at home and in diaspora.

“Who am I? What do I have to have got this kind of Godly favour? But I know one thing and that is, when a man is humble, he tends to have everything’’. Sanwo-Olu affirmed.

Similarly, he assured the Apostle that his major concern is always about the welfare of the poor and how to elevate their status in the society.

In his response, Apostle Bamgbola said Sanwo-Olu proved his mettle during the primary election and only needs to seek the presence of God in other tasks ahead.

While acknowledging the good relationship that existed between him and Mr. Sanwo-Olu, Apostle Bamgbola emphatically stated that he knows the APC candidate as a man of God and as such he will not fail if he is given the opportunity to govern Lagos State.

Drawing reference from the Holy Bible, the CAN chairman said ‘’when the righteous rules, the people rejoice’’. He said that the testimonies from numerous people who have come in contact with the APC candidate shows clearly that he is truly the choice of God.

He however urged Sanwo-Olu to seek people’s understanding in every project he undertakes, saying that with understanding, the citizens will accept himas their leader.
