All Progressive Congress (APC) Governorship aspirant in Lagos, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu rallied that his plan is to make Lagos a greater place.
Sanwo-Olu disclosed this during an exclusive interview with TV Continental on Tuesday, December 11. He stated that the 2019 election will be about who has the best credentials to lead Lagos at this time and won’t be about who can dish out the most insults or tell the most lies.
“Continuity in Government. My administration will complete projects started by the incumbent Governor of Lagos Akinwunmi Ambode. We also be innovative and improve all our processes,” said Sanwo-Olu.
“On my running mate Dr Obafemi Hamzat, the two of us coming together, Lagos is getting an amazing deal. It is two Governors wrapped in one. We both bring two powerful energies into the mix for A Greater Lagos.”
Sanwo-Olu said his manifesto is tagged #AGreaterLagos, and it is not just paperwork or buzzword.
“For a Greater Lagos, my campaign is about taking Lagos to greater Heights. Challenges will always come but we will see significant developments in waste management, education, transportation management, health. On my readiness for governance. He replied I have been preparing for this all my life and every opportunity to serve or learn has given me the required told to lead Lagos to greater heights,” he said.
The fate of Igbos in the State
He assured the Igbos of their safety in the state and promised to continue the cordial relationship maintained by previous administrations.
“The narrative that Lagos dislikes the Igbos is extremely false. Mr Joel igbokwe is the longest APC serving Exco (15 years) and Paseo Ben Akabueze is the longest serving commissioner in Lagos state ” he added that” Lagos is home to all”.
“I believe technology will play a big part in solving a lot of problems, from modelling plans to making informed predictions and then to actual solutions. We will be big on technology and ready to receive ideas that can help our great state”.
“We have deployed to some locations and will be rolling out to LASU and other tertiary institutions. We are going live this week in some of these locations. Internet for knowledge, research, empowerment and ultimately for solutions,” he said.
Opportunities in Lagos
He also pointed out that: “For anyone to imply that Lagosians are slaves is just plain mischief. Lagos is a land of opportunity. We will rank high in parts of the world where you can arrive without knowing anyone and succeed. We are not in the 16th century and we are not under any bondage.”
