Popular oil magnate, Femi Otedola has endorsed Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2019 Lagos governorship election, finally laying to rest speculations about his own interest.
Otedola prefers the candidature of Sanwo-Olu to Jimi Agbaje of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The business man made the announcement Saturday on his Instagram page, declaring Sanwo-Olu his childhood friend and the incoming governor of Lagos State.
“Dinner at my residence yesterday evening with my childhood friend, APC governorship candidate, Jide Sanwo-Olu; the governor in waiting,” he added as a caption beneath the picture he took with Sanwo-Olu.
Otedola was rumoured last month to have been contemplating contesting the Lagos governorship seat under PDP but later denied the rumour.
Jimi Agbaje has been picked by the PDP as the party’s flagbearer in the election.
