“Election that leads to a democratic process is the best for a validation for what democracy should be about.

“I’m indeed happy driving here this morning. I am excited and I’m happy today.”
While Governor Sanwo-Olu uses a bulletproof Range Rover Sentinel as his official vehicle, the BMW X5 Protection VR6 Crossover SUV is his personal ride.
