Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has called on electorates to seize the election period to express themselves freely.
The governor said this on Saturday while addressing journalists at the Polling Unit 019 Ward 08, Ikoyi II, where he cast his vote during the Local Government/Council Areas election on Saturday.
“As electorates, this is about the only time where we can express ourselves freely and openly. It’s a result of advocacy that we all need to continue to express to our citizens.
“All the logistics have been provided. It is really just for our citizens to come out and express themselves. This is a town call for our people to come out and express themselves,” the governor said.
Residents of Lagos State and neighbouring state, Ogun today took to polling units across local councils in the state to elect their local government chairmen and councilors for a fresh four-year term.
