Answering questions on The Verdict, a Channels Television’s political programme on Monday evening, Sanwo-Olu declared that he is confident of victory at the polls on March 2nd. He stated emphatically,”I believe I will win this election.”
The APC flagbearer said he did not sign any agreement or pact with the leadership of the party not to run for the second term, saying that there is only one term of four years on the Independent National Electoral Commission’s expression of interest form.
“I don’t know where the idea of pact or agreement came from. But i can tell you for a fact that there is nothing of such. I didn’t sign a deal with anyone. At any rate, there is only one term of four years on INEC form, so it will be up to the people of Lagos State to determine whether I deserve another term, based on my performance.”
When asked by the presenter, Seun Okinbaloye if he would be his own man in running the state, the APC candidate was unequivocal in his response when he said, “absolutely. At 53? Yes, I am my own man”.
The APC standard bearer dismissed attempt by the People’s Democratic Party to gauge its popularity with its recent presidential campaign rally as that would amount to building a castle in the air adding that President Muhammadu Buhari and APC will win the Presidential election convincingly without any recourse to rigging or any electoral malpractices being alleged by the PDP, a party Sanwo-Olu described as the creator of the problems President Buhari is working hard to fix. .
