A non-political, religious and ethical organisation, Eko Lâ€™Odu Support Group have called on Lagosians toÂ re-elect Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola in next monthâ€™s general election.
According to the chairman of the group, Anthony Layeni, Fashola has done more than enough so he deserves the support of all well-meaning Nigerians to move the state forward.
Leyeni informed that the group has a lot of plans in the offing to sensitise and mobilise Lagosians. The programmesÂ being planned by the group would be unfolded in the next few days.
Coordinator of the group, Yinka Adetoro noted that for Lagos to realise the dream of becoming a mega city,Â Fashola needs the support and encouragement of all Lagosians, adding that the group does not have any party affiliation but is only working for the re-election of the Governor Fashola as a person because of his achievements since becoming the governor of Lagos State in 2007.
Adetoro urged every eligible resident in the stateÂ to vote to support Fasholaâ€™s second term bid because Lagos is one of the few states in the country in which the dividends of democracy has really been felt.
