The All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State Governorship Candidate, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has promised to carry everyone along by being a listening governor if elected.
Sanwo-Olu made the promise on Sunday, December 11, 2018, at a special prayer session organized by the Nasrul-Lahil-il-Fath Society (NASFAT) at its headquarters in Alausa, Ikeja. 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.”
“Is 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.”
Sanwo-Olu also urged Muslim Ummah to hold their leaders accountable by participating actively in politics. He said:
“Muslims should be active in politics by holding their leaders accountable by teaching politicians the truth and by offering themselves for political positions.’’
The Deputy Governorship Candidate, Mr. Obafemi Hamzat, urged religious leaders to prioritize on the well-being of every Nigerian citizen, saying that government alone could not do it. He said:
“We have more religious houses in Lagos State than schools. Why are the religious organizations not making an impact?
“Religious houses have a duty to make life more meaningful and abundant to the citizens.’’
