A greater Lagos shall be ours – Sanwo-Olu speaks after guber victory
Lagos State Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has revealed that a greater and working Lagos is all planned out in his tenure.
Sanwo-Olu polled a total of 739,445 votes to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party’s Jimi Abaje, who amassed 206, 141 votes.
Via his victory speech, Sanwo-Olu said: “Today, you did not just vote for Babajide Sanwo-Olu. You voted for that greater Lagos. I promise that together we shall achieve this. I do not make promises lightly. This is a promise that shall not be broken.
“A greater Lagos shall be ours. We shall construct it with the work of our minds, the grit of our hands and by the will and grace of Almighty God.”
Having swept the 20 Local Government Areas in the state, the Governor-elect reaffirmed his plans to the people of Lagos.
“First, my administration shall advance and build on the tradition of constructing the modern infrastructure needed to improve living conditions and encourage greater business and investment by lowering the costs and increasing productivity.
“Second, we will strive to enhance social services to make sure the basic needs of the modest and poor are met and that no Lagosian shall be deprived of humane care and human dignity.
“Three, we will develop specific and concrete plans to establish the types of businesses and investment in Lagos that will provide sustainable growth and job opportunities for the 21st century.
“We must provide jobs and economic opportunity for this vast and industrious population. By doing so, we shall function as a catalyst for growth in Nigeria, in West Africa and the entire continent. Lagos will stand as the economic capital of the black race,” Sanwo-Olu said.
