Ex-Lagos State Commissioner, Mr. Hakeem Mobolaji Abdulateef Iyepe has declared his intention to contest governorship seat against the incumbent governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu in 2023.
Iyepe made the declaration to run for governorship position against Sanwo-Olu while holding a declaration of intention nteractive session in Lagos yesterday.
Iyepe said, his intention to contest governorship seat was hinged on the fact that the present crop of politicians have failed to turn Nigerian economy around despite numerous natural resources littered the country.
He said, Nigeria set to celebrate 60th independence anniversary on October 1st but in reality there is nothing to show for it as a developmental stride since the independence. He stated further that, anybody that cultivates the habit of sitting on the fence while the country is being bastardized by politicians is a betrayal of allegiance he owes the country and he doesn’t want to betray Nigeria and Lagos at large, reason for his intetion.
He promised Lagosians that he would change the status quo by embarking on several development projects that will uplift the standard of living of all Lagosians should they give him necessary support to become governor 2023.
