Arewa community endorses Sanwo-Olu

The Lagos State Chairman of the Arewa Community, Alhaji Muhammadu Yabo, has said that members of the community in the state will vote for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Saturday.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Yabo also said the community would actively participate in the governorship and House of Assembly elections and vote for APC candidates.

“We shall deliver block vote to the APC. As we did in the presidential election, we will replicate same on Saturday to indicate that we are not social media electorate, but real voters,” Yabo said.

He called on other residents of the state to come out on Saturday to exercise their franchise and decide their leader for the next four years.

“The Arewa people are psychologically ready and are enthusiastic to support Sanwo-Olu. Noting will stop us from going out to exercise our constitutional right as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Yabo added.

Meanwhile, the Vice-Chairman of the Arewa Community in Lagos, Alhaji Saad Guluma, said it was not true that the community planned to boycott the governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state.

He said, “Some people are saying that since the presidential election is gone, the Arewa community will not vote for Sanwo-Olu. That is not true.

“We are the leaders and we have told our people to do more for the APC in this coming election more than what we did for (President Muhammadu) Buhari in the presidential election.”
