Democracy Day: Sanwo-Olu reveals his first 3 months plan

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Lagos State Governor–elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu who will be taking over administration from the outgoing Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, tomorrow, has unveiled his first three months plan among other issues.

We will be a listening government:  We will open the corridors, as it were, for all those who actually have ideas and contributions to make. It is not going to be about me alone but a load of young, intelligent, middle-aged and older Lagosians.

Practically, we will be a listening government. In the next 60 to 90 days, we are hoping to have a working government. That means, we will have all the cabinet and major appointments running quickly. We will engage real professionals to be working in the cabinet.

We will not be lacking in ideas and Lagosians will be happy with our cabinet and we are expecting a Lagosian to be our speaker at the House of Assembly who will reason with us. It is not political but a need and a point of requirement that we all require to take us to the desired destination which will help all of us as Nigerians in general and Lagosians in particular.

And in the next 60 days, we should begin to see huge solutions in our traffic management scheme that will include those we would have solved and others we will still be practically working on. And in terms of design, identifying those corridors that we need traffic improvement we would have done all of that.

Also, in terms of where we need to improve and increase waste management solutions, we would have done all that. In the first three months, we would have rolled out loads of waste management bags where people will see them; sorting will start from individual households’ kitchens.

It will be work in progress with Public Sector Participants, PSPs, and we would have made some capital expenses in terms of procurement of wheel compactor trucks among others. That will take awhile for it to come fully alive.
