It Hurts Me When Educated People In Ikoyi Voted Against APC, I Hope They Redeem Themselves - Osoba

A former Governor of Ogun State, Olusegun Osoba, has revealed that he was hurt to see that some Lagos residents voted against the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) during the last presidential election. According to a report published by Channels TV, Osoba wondered why Lagos residents, most especially in Ikoyi, Eti-Osa Local Government Area (LGA) voted against the ruling party even though they performed very well in the state.

Recall that Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) won in Lagos State during the last presidential election despite the state being the stronghold of the President-Elect, Bola Tinubu.

While reacting to this, Osoba said that Lagos has been given so much and they should redeem themselves by voting for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the forthcoming governorship poll. He further stated that they should access a government based on performance, adding that they shouldn't let ethnicity and religion divide them.

"In Lagos, it hurts me and it gives me sleepless nights when educated people and others voted against APC in Ikoyi for example. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has done so well in Ikoyi. Ikoyi was totally run down and it was almost becoming a slum. Sanwo-Olu came in and did so much renewal.

Anywhere in the world, you access a government and vote based on performance. I hope they will redeem their image."
