The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Lagos State Chapter has endorsed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat for another term in office.

The Chairman of CAN in the state, Bishop Stephen Adegbite announced the position of the association at a news briefing in Ikeja.

Bishop Adegbite, who said CAN supported the incumbent governor as he was the best candidate and for him to continue his projects, said the association had nothing against other candidates.

“Today, we would like to inform the residents of Lagos State, that the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN in Lagos and the Christian community in the state are throwing our weight solidly behind the candidacy of the incumbent Governor, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr Obafemi Kadiri Hamzat for a second term.

“We look forward to more positive steps in governance in Lagos State that would continue to take us to an enviable height and put more smiles on the faces of Lagosians. Policies and programmes that would help retain our position as the cynosure of all eyes and pacesetter within the Federation and consolidate as the 5th largest economy on the African continent,” said Bishop Adegbite.
