Sanwo-Olu saved Lagos from going the wrong direction – Tinubu

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Lader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, revealed that Lagos State was heading in the wrong direction between 2017-2018 before the election of the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The ‘Jagaban’ of Lagos said Sanwo-Olu returned the ship to the right direction upon assuming office.

Tinubu said this during the opening ceremony of the 1.4km Agege Pen Cinema bridge which construction began in December 2017 during the former governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s tenure who was absent at the event.

He further revealed that Sanwo-Olu and his Deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, has displayed unparalleled leadership grace since their election into office.

Tinubu said, “Sometime in 2017-2018, the ship of this state seemed to have headed in a very wrong direction. History had it that we came together, an election came, and we chose a democratically-elected government of the people, our people, and for the people. They say, ‘who is Babajide Sanwo-Olu’? We said, ‘you will find out.

“Ever since Babajide became the captain of the ship of our state, he has turned it round to the right direction of progress, development, and good leadership quality. Both of you (Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat) and the entire cabinet have demonstrated unequal determination to redevelop and rebuild for the people of Lagos. You have made us see a fine and determined government for the progress and quality of life of our people.

“We have a team led by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, partnered with Hamzat, and it is a team of great performers and doers. Out of adversity, you make prosperity. Instead of showing demonstration and frustration, you put your hands on the plough. Since then, Lagos State has become one giant construction site throughout the nation. We thank you for not letting us down.”
