With the presidential elections barely a week away, Nigerian actors under the aegis of the League of Lagos State Artistes have announced their preferred candidates for the presidential and Lagos state governorship candidate.

The actors made this known at the Executive suite of LTV Multipurpose Hall, Ikeja, Lagos on Friday, February 8, 2019.

Speaking at the event, Veteran actor Jide Kososko who was the convener of the group, said it has become expedient for Nigerians to sustain the progress of the on-going developmental efforts of the incumbent president.

He also noted sustainability can only be enhanced with the re-election of Buhari, and election of Sanwo-Olu in Lagos State.

He said; “As citizens, we have our civic responsibilities, not only to vote but also to collectively engaged in educating and informing our people through our trade – entertainment. We have come to the conclusion that only one man, at the moment fits into the bill to help steer the ship of state and continue in the gradual redemption of our national pride and that man is President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We cannot but take a more than passing interest in the politics of Lagos State, where most of us are domiciled. It is therefore of great importance to us who becomes the next governor of the Centre of Excellence. The League of Lagos Artistes, after due consideration of the available options for governor of the state, hereby individually and collectively endorse Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for Governor and Dr. Femi Hamzat for Deputy Governor, Lagos.”

Other notable artistes at the event were Funsho Adeolu, Madam Shaje, Ayo Badmus, Iyabo Ojo, Shade Omoniyi, Ayo Adesanya, Ronke Ojo, aka Oshodi-Oke, Shola Kosoko and Kemi Afolabi.
