The governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, asserts that his administration has attracted billions of dollars into significant infrastructural and manufacturing projects in the state.
On March 11, Sanwo-Olu will compete for the governorship against Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP) and Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Monday, in a letter to the residents of Eti-Osa, a prestigious district of the state, the governor asked them to vote for him to “continue this extraordinary path of realizing our united vision of a stronger Lagos.”
Sanwo-Olu stated that if re-elected, his administration would continue to make the state more prosperous with “diligence and sincerity.”
“As your governor for the past four years, I humbly request that you join hands with me to continue this particular journey toward attaining our shared vision of a greater Lagos. “During the past four years, we have left no one in question about our commitment to positively transforming the fortunes of Lagos State on behalf of all its citizens,” he stated.
“Let me also say that, regardless of how we would have liked the presidential elections to go, as Lagosians, we are all united by the desire for a bigger Lagos.
“Because of this, I am extending to you an invitation to vote for me, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, on March 11 in order to help this vital mission of bettering our state. I pledge to continue serving you with sincerity and determination and to continue the road to Lagos, the most active and successful state in the nation.
“We have accomplished a great deal over the past four years, and we can accomplish even more over the next four with your assistance.
“The initial phase of the Blue Line Rail has been completed, and the Red Line will shortly follow suit. The Lekki-Epe Expressway is being rebuilt from Ajah to Epe T-Junction; the portion between Eleko Junction and Epe was recently completed.
“The new Lekki regional route, which will serve as an alternative to the Lekki-Epe Expressway and connect Freedom way to VGC, is nearing completion. We are investing in a number of new hospitals, modernizing our public schools, and equipping students and instructors with digital tools to enhance teaching and learning outcomes.
“We have lured billions of dollars into key infrastructure and manufacturing projects in our state, including the recently inaugurated Lekki Deep Sea Port, which will create tens of thousands of jobs and boost Lekki’s economy. The fourth Mainland Bridge, which will connect Lekki to the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, is currently under development.
