Be wary of friends, Akiolu tells Sanwo-Olu


The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has warned the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to watch the company he keeps.

Akiolu, who spoke during a courtesy visit of the APC candidate to his palace at Iga Iduganran, Isale Eko, said many people were in politics for selfish interest.

A statement on Monday said he urged Sanwo-Olu to work for the people of Lagos through good governance that would improve the quality of their lives.

“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu started a very good work in Lagos and fought for the interest of Lagos. Babatunde Fashola also did very well and Akinwumi Ambode who is presently in is also doing well. When you get to office by the grace of God you must carry on with the good work of your predecessors and take Lagos to a higher level of development. I will always be around to offer you good advice. Everyone knows that I will always say the truth to anyone.

“I will also implore those of you following him now not to betray him. Your work is to help him succeed. I pray for you that as you move on in your campaign all of you will achieve success together,” he added.

The governorship candidate said he had developed comprehensive policies that were in line with the APC manifesto, adding that he would implement them if elected by the people of the state.
