Chairman of the party in Ward M, in Eti-Osa, Mr Sina Bojo, moved the motion for the endorsement during a parley between the lawmaker and the leaders of the APC in the constituency.
Bojo noted that the lawmaker had represented them very well and so deserves another term in the House of Assembly.
“Yishawu has made us proud and I want to say that he has always been there for us and we will continue to support him.
“He has done so very well and we are proud of him. He has done a lot for us, he has helped us in so many ways since he got to the assembly.
“I, Hon. Sina Boja, move that Hon. Gbolahan Yishawu should be supported to be given the ticket for the Lagos State House of Assembly for the fourth term in 2023,” he said.
Also, Mr Vincent Aduku, Deputy Youth Leader of the APC in Lagos State, commended the lawmaker for his numerous empowerment programmes for men, women and youths, saying that they would want him to do more when he gets back to the assembly in 2023.
