“As a party, we are proud that you have kept faith as our flag-bearer and on course to fulfill our progressive manifestos to the delight of all Lagosians.”
“As the second half begins, we are convinced that all projects will be completed and more impactful policies, programs and projects will be implemented as you finish strongly.”
“We can as well start preparing to add the appellation “Your Excellency “to your name which you have earned in words and deed.
