The Lagos State chapters of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC), on Thursday, endorsed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat, for a second term in office.

At a rally at the Police College, Ikeja, tagged ‘Labour 4 Sanwo-Ou’, the two unions said the duo has performed well in their first term in office and deserves a second term.

In his goodwill message, the chairman of the Joint Negotiating Council, Segun Balogun said the endorsement for the re-election of the administration was in the right direction.

The chairman of the NLC in Lagos, Agnes Funmilayo Sessi, said it was the first time that labour unions in the state would endorse the candidate of any party in the state.

She said organised labour would engage in politics this time around, adding that 60 percent of Lagos State residents are workers and that they have endorsed Governor Sanwo-Olu and Deputy Governor Hamzat for another four years in office.

Also speaking at the event where Governor Sanwo-Olu’s hands were raised, the state chairman of the Trade Union Congress, Gbenga Ekundayo, said democracy was about inclusion.

He praised the governor for having a listening ear and being accommodating.

Governor Sanwo-Olu recognised the endorsement of both the public and private sectors and promised that his government would continue to make life better and liveable for workers in the state.

The governor said his administration would not take workers for granted and thanked them for their backing.
