2019: This Is How Sanwo-Olu Plans To Run Lagos
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, says he would run a government based on the wishes of the people if elected.
He said his administration will be a listening one, while delivering the greatest good to the greatest number of people.
He made the pledge on Monday while speaking during an interactive session with selected social media influencers in Lagos.
The governorship hopeful declared that as a proper Lagosian, he believes in the total development of every part of Lagos State where no local council area will be left out.
"I know Lagos so well because I have spent more than 15 years serving Lagos in various capacities since Nigeria’s return to democracy.
"I know what the Lagos master plan entails because I made inputs into the document.
"We will make Lagos work again and for all. I promise you that we will always listen and take feedback on board when I become governor.
“I will run an inclusive government, we will ensure that we have a participatory government, we will always listen to our people.
"I will be a governor for all. Our government will be a government that listens more and talks less, our government will run an open-door policy,” he said.
Sanwoolu said road infrastructure, housing, health, information technology, education and economy would receive the urgent attention of his government if elected.
“There are many poor people at the grassroots and we must do everything to touch their lives.
"We will do something tangible to ensure that we touch the lives of the poor and those at the grassroots for them to feel the impact of government.
He also stated that waste management is something his government will take seriously.
"We will be looking at more efficient ways of handling waste and going big on recycling."
On the choice of Obafemi Hamzat as his deputy, Sanwo -Ooli said Lagos State is going to have the price of two for one with himself and his deputy because both of them are sound technocrats who know the problems of Lagos and how to proffer solutions.
Sanwo-Olu, who has the backing of Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of APC, emerged as the party’s candidate after party faithful voted en-mass for his candidacy.
