Sanwo-Olu urges Nigerians to elect capable leaders

Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has called on Nigerians to elect candidates that could sustain the country, in the 2023 general elections.

Sanwo-Olu made the call at a Special Prayer Session/Jumat Service to commemorate the 62nd Independence Day Celebration, organised by the Ministry of Home Affairs at the Lagos Secretariat Community Central Mosque Alausa, Ikeja on Friday.

The Governor, who was represented by his Deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, said the APC Presidential Candidate, Sen. Bola Tinubu if elected, can sustain the nation’s economy, hence the need to support him.

The governor urged Nigerians to vote wisely come 2023 general elections by choosing a good leader for a better Nigeria.

He also urged Nigerians to be astute in their voting in 2023, avoid elevating issues that are unnecessary and consider what the candidates had done in their various communities.

Sanwo-Olu urged Nigerians not to listen to bogus statistics but consider the candidates’ plans, especially in the areas of security, economic development, and social and physical infrastructure provisions.

Speaking on the religious distractions within the country, the governor stated that the election should be based on capacity and achievement instead of religion and other inconsequential considerations.

According to him, there is no point in elevating religion instead of the virtues required for productive leadership.

“If we can put our lives in the hands of doctors without asking for their religion before surgery, why then are we neglecting what we are supposed to do and doing otherwise in the name of religion?

“We should not play politics under the guise of religion,” he said.

The governor tasked Nigerians with fixing the country and making it better, noting that every developed nation had been lucky to have good leaders at a point in time.

He added that Nigeria would not be an exception while citing Singapore, having Lee Kuan Yew or America having Abraham Lincoln at the right time which led to the rapid development of the different countries.

Sanwo-Olu, therefore, prayed that Nigeria would not miss the opportunity of choosing a good leader.

He also prayed for a peaceful and violence-free election.
