Gani said the party’s state chapter particularly, hailed the governor for his ability to garner the needed votes to be declared at first ballot.
He further stated that he is optimistic that the party would also ensure it emerged victorious in the Lagos State governorship election in 2023.
“To us in PDP Lagos State, we have grasped from the well-deserved victory, the renewed commitment and resoluteness.’
“Our effort is to also win Lagos State to end godfatherism and imposition in Lagos politics.”
“As a matter of fact, we are now more than ever before, fired up to win Lagos State,” he said.
