ALL Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain Olajide Adediran on Thursday declared his intention to run for the governorship election in Lagos in 2023.

The 42-year-old journalist and businessman said he will not step down for any aspirant, adding that he will not settle for the positions of deputy governor, House of Representatives member and senator.

Adediran, who refused to disclose the identities of those backing him, however, said former Lagos governor and Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola is not his sponsor.

He said he had started mobilising the grassroots for his ambition, boasting that he had structures across the wards and local governments.
