The founder of the True Covenant Church of God, Bishop Festus Olufemi Otusanya, better known as Omomajemu has endorsed the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for a second term in office.
The youngest bishop in a message to Ikorodu News Network (INN) on the 8th of March 2023 disclosed that Sanwo-Olu is a leader that hears the cries of the people, and acts accordingly to ameliorate the people’s discomforts.
According to Omomajemu, Governor Sanwo-Olu has performed well in less than 4years, putting aside his code of conduct most times in order to make Lagosians happy.
He later called on youths and adults to re-elect Sanwo-Olu for continuity in Lagos State, adding that the State is improving on a yearly basis.
Furthermore, Omomajemu, who’s also the president of the Youth Platform Africa, told Ikorodu News Network (INN) that his movement has also officially endorsed the Governor, citing his numerous measures to partner with youths under his administration.
He continued, “In our last conference, we unanimously gave our endorsement to Governor Sanwo-Olu, because we can see his track record, which in the case of other candidates in the gubernatorial race, we don’t know what they’ve done to warrant them becoming governor of the centre of excellence State”.
“I am confident that come on the 18th of March, Sanwo-Olu will be victorious” Omomajemu asserted.
