Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed that electorates in the state will re-elect him into office in 2023 because his administration brought in development that can be seen and felt by the residents.
He made the revelation during a chat on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics programme.
He said, “I managed the emergency of the city. Today alone, there are emergencies that have been reported today alone.
“I’ve recruited over 650 fire service men. I’ve bought 64 brand new trucks that you will come; I will invite you for commissioning.
“I spent over a billion to take off the refuse in Lagos. We’re creating a sanitary landfill site. That’s what we’re doing. We’re building 1618 kilometres of rigid pavement road that runs to tens of billions.
“We’re building the biggest market in the country because that’s what we’re doing.”
When asked if he saw Olajide Adediran of the PDP and his deputy, Funke Akindele as a threat, he said he is the most preferred candidate because he is more experienced.
“So you know, like I said if you have an emergency, who would you call? What are your chances? Do you call the man that has the experience that has gone through the trenches before that has lived with it that understands what the issues are.
“That appreciate what challenge you have even at 3 a.m. or will you leave your chance to someone that doesn’t know where the dial is or that doesn’t even know what the issues of governance are? This is Lagos.
“This is an informed audience. This is not a tea party. We’re talking about real governance. We’re talking about the lives of 20-plus million Nigerians.”
He added that “Lagos cannot be left in the hands of someone who cannot run a business that has 100 people.”
