Few Days To Governorship Poll, Sanwo-Olu Takes Over Church Entrance To Shake Hands With Sunday Service Attendees
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu made another unusual public showing at a Lagos mega church in Lekki on Sunday, stationing himself at the church’s entrance to exchange handshakes with worshippers.
In a trending internet video, Mr Sanwo-Olu is seen at the entrance of the Harvesters Church, shaking hands with worshipers, mostly youths, as they try to depart the church premises. This was after the church authorities had afforded him the opportunity to address the congregants.
Mr Sanwo-Olu’s shocking appearance, however, caused a stir, as the audience did enough to show disapproval for the man they continue to hold responsible for the October 20, 2020 #EndSARS massacre.
Since the flooring of the ruling All Progressives Congress at the February 25 presidential election in Lagos, Mr Sanwo-Olu has been working at a frenetic pace to connect with aggrieved Lagos voters, most of whom are youths.
Mr Sanwo-Olu, seeking a second term, is hoping for success in next Saturday’s polls. His ambition faces an unprecedented threat from the Labour Party which ended his party’s tight grip on Lagos in the last presidential election.
