The Governor-elect of Lagos State, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, is currently undergoing a leadership course at Harvard Kennedy School of Government, United States of America, ahead of his role as governor of Lagos State.
According to him, it is important to be at the top of new solutions to lead a great state like Lagos successfully, hence the move to take the leadership course at the prestigious college.
He shared photos of him in class and wrote;
“This week, I am at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government taking a course on Leading Economic Growth.
To lead a great state like lagos, it is important that I am on top of new solutions and concepts that will help accelerate economic growth and development.
Whether in business or governance, we need to combine knowledge with practical solutions.
As we build #ForAGreaterLagos, we must prioritize learning and knowledge transfer across all levels.”
The Lagos State governor-elect however assured residents of the state of continuity on the projects started by the incumbent governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Vanguard reports.
“Government is a continuum; it means that we are taking over both asset and liability. It will be unfair to residents for us to abandon projects all because we did not conceive them. The strategy would be to very quickly complete those projects and innovatively create our own,”He then stated further:
“I am looking forward to engagement that will ensure that all the things we have promised our people, all the deliverables, all of us working together to make them come to bear very quickly.“So, I am appealing and pleading ahead that I will need your support, I will need your cooperation. “I will give my total support to the assembly and anything that will be required to ensure that you discharge your responsibilities fully without any fear and doubt.“Our people have entrusted us with this mandate. If the teeming population in Lagos have given all our party, each and every one of us a resounding victory in the last elections, the least we can do for them is to ensure that from day one, we understand and appreciate what this call is all about.
