Following the disapproval shown by some residents of Lagos State particularly members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over the donation made to the victorious national football team, Super Eagles, by the governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has defended the action of the governor, which it deemed a worthy gesture.
APC Publicity Secretary, Mr Joe Igbokwe in a statement on Tuesday, said that Sanwo-Olu had been reputable for many charitable works, which include generous support to sporting activities, even before his foray into politics.
“ Sanwo- Olu is entitled to do what he did to encourage the Super Eagles who just beat the defending champions, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, whether they are rich or not
“With every sense of humility, let it be known that Governor Sanwo- Olu is endowed to do the needful when the need arises as a leader.
“Personally, he has been deeply involved in charity works, though quietly, in Lagos, even before he joined the governorship race in Lagos”, he said.
