The Governor .-Elect of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has described as fake news, a long list of promises which has been circulating on the social media and attributed to him.
Mr Sanwo- Olu said he also saw the list on the social media just as every one else and wondered if everybody is now a Sanwo-Olu.
in his words; “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”.
He stressed that within the first quarter in office, people should start 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.
