Video: PDP House of Reps Candidate OmoBarca explains why he delivered Ajeromi Ifelodun to Governor Sanwo-Olu
Ajeromi Ifelodun federal constituency House of Representatives candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, Hon Francis Bartholomew Chima aka OmoBarca, has clarified why he endorsed and ensured the incumbent Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu won his constituency in the just concluded governorship election.
OmoBarca who just returned from vacation in London, had called on his supporters to vote for Sanwo-Olu in the March 18 governorship election.
In a video posted on social media the PDP chieftain disclosed his satisfaction with the first term of Sanwo-Olu as governor and passed a vote of confidence in him.

He further pledged to use his massive political structure to deliver Ajeromi Ifelodun for the All Progressives Congress in the Guber polls.
OmoBarca further regretted that in spite of winning the primary elections for House of Representatives, the People’s Democratic Party dragged him up to the Supreme Court and wasted all his efforts and resources to lose the election.
According to him, PDP has failed to reward his loyalty and does not regard him as a party faithful hence his endorsement of Governor Sanwo-Olu.
“I do not owe anybody any explanation or seek permission from PDP before doing what is in my best interest. PDP as a party wasted my time and energy from Appeal Court to Supreme Court.
I am satisfied with supporting and endorsing Mr Sanwo-Olu for the second term in Lagos State,” OmoBarca noted.
