He has my endorsement, as well as that of the governor and party elders,” Gbajabiamila stated.

Drawing on his extensive legislative experience, Gbajabiamila emphasised Laguda’s capability to uphold Surulere’s achievements. “After over 20 years in the House of Representatives, I know the qualities needed for effective legislating.
