Coalition of Muslim Women for Asiwaju (COMWA) has vowed to embark on a massive awareness program from mosque to mosque in a bid to get more votes for the second term of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, in the person of His Excellency Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr Kadri Obafemi Hamzat.
The promise was at a press briefing in Lagos, where it endorsed the re-election bid of his Excellency Mr Sanwo-Olu for a second term in office. Muslim women from various Islamic organisations in the country gathered at the press conference and affirmed they have started mobilising for votes and will intensify the efforts this week so that many women will troop out on Saturday, in shaa Allah.
Alhaja Rasheedat Adebari, the National Coordinator, said the governor had done well for Lagosians and Nigerians at large in the last four years, and because of that, he should be re-elected for a second term in office to continue the good works he has been doing for Lagos state.As a Muslim body, we have come to join millions of Lagosians to pledge our support for Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu.
We hasten to reckon the blue rail line, which was uncompleted has finally seen the light of day. The red railway line is also nearing completion. And this is apart from many road projects that are ongoing across the State. The 4th Mainland Bridge was recently contracted and, the Opebi-Iya Alaro link bridge inching to competition are good testimonies of infrastructural development for his government .
The impacts of these two bridges decongesting roads and shortening journey time when completed are better imagined, in a state where the quantum of hours often lost in traffic. Also speaking at the event, a matron of COMWA, Alhaja Sherifah Yusuf-Ajibade, thanked members of COMWA and women generally for voting APC in the presidential elections. We appreciate the sacrifices of our members and all women in general, who came out to vote massively for the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on February 25.
However, the job is uncompleted until Governor Sanwo-Olu is re-elected on March 11 2023. We must all come out with our friends and family to vote for the governor. At the programme, the women offered a special prayer for Nigeria, success in the forthcoming gubernatorial elections and the newly elected president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The Governorship elections hold on March Saturday, March 11 2023, in many states of the country-Nigeria.
