Tope AbdurRazaq Balogun, the gubernatorial candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in Lagos State in respect of the forthcoming 2023 election, says he wants to succeed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu because of his desire to bring equity into governance in the state and also due to the perceived unsatisfactory performance of the incumbent governor.
TOP MEDIA reports that Balogun stated this in an interview with Daily Independent.
“I wish to succeed the incumbent Governor to bring equity into governance in Lagos State where different classes of people within the state will enjoy dividends of democracy based on their needs while prorating the resources of the State.
“In the long run, the main duty of government which is geared towards bringing comfort to residents will be better attained,” Balogun said.
He added: “The ruling party has performed below expectation considering the humongous human and financial resources within the state which do not translate to better living conditions for many residents who complain of inadequacies in various sectors of the economy.
“What they have successfully been doing is window dressing many unfinished projects while commissioning some of them as well as signing agreements that do not directly improve the lives of average Lagosians”.
“I am using this medium to tell Lagosians that you shouldn’t allow them to tell you lies that your votes don’t count, that you are wasting your vote, or that they have won before the election.”
