By Sir Gabriel Otioma, LAGOS. The Lagos State governorship candidate under the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu was mocked by Lagosians who received rice from him during the Yuletide season.
2kg bag of rice which has Sanwo-Olu and APC logo was shared to members of the public to lured them to vote for APC governorship candidate, Lagos State in the next gubernatorial election in the state. However, this act was perceived by the public and most recipients as logical way of inducing the electorates to vote for the APC candidate in the coming governorship poll.
Some Nigerians have condemned this act, believing it wasn’t done for humanity and charity purposes, but for selfish reasons and an act to lure Lagosians to vote against their conscience in the coming general election as only those who have PVCs were offered the 2kg rice and cow meat.
One recipient, Ifeoluwa took to her facebook page to mock the APC candidate, Mr. Sanwo-Olu, “I am a Lagosian, I collected this rice from APC Sanwo-Olu, but I’m still going to vote my conscience which is not APC candidate”.
