Babajide Sanwo-Olu vs Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour: A Quick Overview
Lagos State is now set to elect leaders to pilot its affairs as Governor and Deputy Governor on March 18, for another democratic journey of four years.
Electorates have expressed desire to vote for leaders who are responsible and responsive, and will meet their needs and protect their interests.
Many of the top party candidates have made promises on programmes and projects as well as the direction their administration will take if given the mandate.
