Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC's presidential candidate, has conveyed his gratitude to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his deputy Obafemi Hamzat, and the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu for their support.
When the former governor of Lagos State visited the monarch on Sunday after winning the APC presidential nomination for the general elections of 2023, he made this statement.
Additionally, Tinubu asked the chairmen and council members of local governments to encourage citizens to cast ballots in the impending general elections in 2023.
Governors Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano and Hope Uzodinma of Imo, as well as former APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole and Senator Kashim Shettima, the former governor of Borno State, were among the APC officials that traveled with Tinubu.
Meanwhile, while Tinubu was visiting the Oba of Lagos, hoodlums attacked his convoy.
On Sunday, the incident took place when the convoy was leaving the palace at the Adeniji end of Isale Eko.
Some of the thugs on the convoy, who were armed with cutlasses, flung stones and other projectiles that broke the front and side windows of the vehicles carrying journalists and the security car.
One of the injured reporters, Adeola Ogunrinde, told our correspondent that many of her colleagues who sustained injuries in the attack have received medical treatment.
She said, “It happened at the Oba’s palace. The thugs armed with cutlasses attacked the convoy and our bus was on the tail end of the convoy and shattered its windows with stones. I was seated beside the window and some of the broken glass entered my eye.
“Our bus was damaged, so most of us sustained various injuries on our bodies. One of us even had his phone stolen. It was a terrible experience. We have been given medical attention and tomorrow I will be at the hospital.”©Standard Gazette, 2021.
