The All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos Governorship candidate Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said he was aspiring to be a Chief of Staff in Lagos only 4 years ago.
The Cable reports that Sanwo-Olu said this at a special prayer session organised by the Nasrul-Lahil-il-Fath Society (NASFAT) at its headquarters in Alausa, Ikeja.
He will concentrate on the expansion of roads if elected governor, he said, and will look at how to empower the youth. He said:
I will carry everyone along as a governor. In the NASFAT’s prayer for me, they advised me to choose good adviser and be a listening governor.
Four years ago, my deputy wanted to be the governor and I was aspiring to be the chief of staff but now God has turned the table around.
I will concentrate more, if elected the governor, on expansion of roads, building bridges and traffic control.
We will also be looking at the area of empowering the youth. The private sector is the engine of growth and development; so opportunities will be given to private sector by ensuring easy way of doing businesses in Lagos.
We have more religious houses in Lagos State than schools. Why are the religious organisations not making an impact?
Religious houses have a duty to make life more meaningful and abundant to the citizens.
It’s a shame our youths are seeking greener pastures outside the country. In spite of our human and natural resources we are still poor due to bad leadership.
