Sanwo-Olu visits Oyedepo as election draws closer

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has visited the presiding bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide Bishop David Oyedepo as the March 18 date for the governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections draw close.

Mr Sanwo-Olu paid the courtesy visit on Monday at the church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State.

Dressed in white, the governor posed for photos with Oyedepo who was also dressed in his customary white attire.

Sanwo-Olu announced his visit via Instagram on Tuesday.

“I paid a courtesy visit to Bishop David Oyedepo founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, (Winners Chapel) and presiding Bishop of the Faith Tabernacle in Ota, Ogun State,” he said.

The visit to the Winners Chapel International leader followed another visit to Harvesters Church on Sunday, March 12.

After the church service, the governor stood at the entrance of the church where he exchanged handshakes with members of the church as they left for their homes.

A video from the church immediately went viral on social media, drawing tons of reactions from the public.

Sanwo-Olu, who is facing stiff opposition for his seat, especially from the Labour Party, has intensified his re-election campaign by reaching out to influential groups and individuals.

On March 7, the governor embarked on campaign tour of large markets populated by the Igbo.

He met an amalgamation of Igbo traders across 58 major markets in Lagos, including Computer Village in Ikeja and the Trade Fair Complex in Ojo.

He also assured them of the safety of their businesses, investments and property, adding that Lagos would continue to be a melting pot for all Nigerians.
