The WITNESS reports that the endorsement was announced by Gboyega Akosile, Chief Press Secretary to the Sanwo-Olu via his official Twitter handle on Tuesday.

Despite the ongoing crisis rocking the PDP, Wike has remained in the party vowing not to exit the party. He has however continued to engage in anti-party activities one of which is his alleged open support for governor Sanwo-Olu the governorship candidate of the ruling APC which he is supposed to oppose by default.
It is worthy of note that the PDP candidate in the state, Jide Adeniran ‘Jandor’ was welcomed into the party by Wike and others but now, it seems the tide has changed.
