Lagos women promise to ensure Tinubu’s, Sanwo-Olu’s victory

Women in Lagos state yesterday held a ‘two-million woman solidarity walk’ in support of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Many women groups, adorning colorful branded t-shirts, with the typical fez cap, held carnival-like rallies on major streets of Lagos Island, drumming, singing, and dancing.

The Lagos crowd was huge. But, organizers ensured that traffic was not disrupted. The excited women carried banners and posters as they sang partisan anthems: ‘On your mandate, we stand.’

The Lagos State APC Women leader, Jumoke Okoya-Thomas, a former member of the House of Representatives spoke to the crowd at the Mobolaji Johnson Sporting Arena, Ikoyi.

She said women were determined to ensure the victory of the presidential and governorship standard bearers in the 2023 elections.

Okoya-Thomas said:” We will not relent in our efforts at mobilizing the women in the state to support the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and our governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu.

“All hands are on deck in Lagos to ensure victory for the APC in the elections.”
