The Lagos State governor-elect, Babajide Sanwoolu, on Sunday thanked

residents of the state for electing him in the March 9 elections.

Addressing party stakeholders in Ikeja after he was declared winner by

the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Sanwo-olu said

he was honoured by the overwhelming support of residents.

He said though the victory carries his name, his success in the election

was actually victory for all residents.

Sanwo-olu said that he viewed the mandate given to him as a call to

service to improve the lives of the people.

He thanked the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), both

at the state and national levels, for suporting him.

Sanwo-olu said he was particularly grateful to President Muhammadu

Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the party National Chairman for

believing in his vision.

Sanwo-olu said he would not disappoint those who had invested their

trust in him, as he was focussed on development.
