No Pact Signed Over Second Term, Says Sanwo-Olu

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has dismissed signing any pact not to run for a second term as mere speculation.

Speaking on a television programme hosted by  Channels Television, the governorship candidate said his victory at the polls was a done deal.  

Sanwo-Olu said the celebration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the turn-out of supporters and loyalists at campaigns was misplaced as crowds do not translate to votes. He insisted that the PDP could not assess his popularity by the crowd at its campaigns.

He said: “I think we need to understand that crowd during political rallies is not always the same as voting on election days. I can confirm to you that crowd is not the same as actual voting. A lot happens on the election days. Mobilisation of voters, for example, is a critical element of election. So, I’ll advise that the PDP should not jubilate over what they perceive as a large turnout at the Kano rally.

“I don’t know where the idea of pact or agreement came from. But I can tell you for a fact that there is nothing of such. I didn’t sign a deal with anyone. At any rate, there is only one term  of four years on the INEC form, so it will be up to the people of Lagos State to determine whether I deserve another term based on my performance.”

When asked if he would run the state independent of external influence, Sanwo-Olu said he was an adult, old enough to take decisions and be his “own man”.
