Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor-elect of Lagos state, says hard work would be the driving force of his administration.
”By the grace of God, our administration will be driven by hardwork; there is no place for laziness,” Sanwo-Olu said.
He was speaking on Saturday in Ikeja at the “Sanwo-Olu/Hamzat victory party” organised by the independent campaign group (ICG), his campaign organisation.
The governor-elect said he would hit the ground running as soon as he is sworn-in on May 29, and promised to fulfill all his electoral promises.
Sanwo-Olu said he was fully prepared for the challenges of governance and that he would give his best to take the state to the next level.
The governor-elect also said he would proffer solutions to the nagging problem of traffic gridlock and deal with the issue of waste decisively.
He said his administration would give the education and health sectors as well as the other critical sectors the attention they deserve.
Sanwo-Olu said his government would prioritise the welfare of workers and other residents of the state.
The governor-elect added that his administration would invest massively in infrastructure to make life better for all residents.
“We will work and work to meet the aspirations of our people and make the state better for everyone,” he said.
“As we start a new journey on May 29, I appeal to residents to roll up their sleeves and support us to realise the the state of our dream.
“If you are sweeper, it is time to sweep better, if you are sprinter, it is time to run faster, if you are a farmer, it is time to farm better.
“It is time for everybody to work harder and up their game so that together, we can build a better state.”
Sanwo-Olu thanked residents for voting him and Obafemi Hamzat, his deputy, in the last election, promising not to disappoint them.
On Thursday, the governor-elect had said only those who have shared vision with him and Hamzat will make it into his government. (The Cable)
