He needs no introduction He is Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, a Politician from Lagos State and the 2019 Lagos State gubernatorial election candidate for All Progressives Congress who contested and won the gubernatorial primaries under the All Progressives Congress against incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State in October 2018.
He is a graduate of the University of Lagos, as well as the London Business School, Lagos Business School and the John F. Kennedy School of Government. Prior to his gubernatorial ambition, he was the Managing Director/CEO of Lagos State Property Development Commission (LSPDC).
On March 10, 2019, he was declared Governor-Elect of Lagos State by the Independent National Electoral Commission and ever since many reports have been spreading in town on how he plans to bring magic to LAGOS IN NO TIME
In the first of the series tagged “Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu File” the Governor elect kicked against all the fake news on social media, in his words “I saw the list, too. In Lagos, everybody is now a Sanwo-Olu. But the reality is that it’s just a wish list; it’s fake news. It’s not a bad thing in itself when people push you to achieve, but the truth is that you need to crawl before you walk. In our first quarter in office, we are hoping to have a working government running very quickly. We should be beginning to see huge solutions to traffic management, for instance.
“Also, in terms of areas where we need to improve on waste management solutions, we would be working on that. The Apapa traffic gridlock, I believe we have solved it but the sustainability is some of the things we need to do. We’ll also have to work around the civil service because all these things we are talking about, we need professionals who are in the civil service to work with. So in terms of capacity building and skills gap,we need to identify where the right professionals are in our civil service so we can utilise the right competences, the square pegs in square holes to work on all these solutions we are talking about. On power, within 90 days, I imagine we should have had a clear-cut policy working with the power distribution companies, the generating companies and all other key stakeholders on how we must ensure that Lagos is powered up very, very quickly” Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu posited
