I Won’t Retire From Politics Till I Die – Shekarau

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has asked the residents of the state and the general populace to start addressing him as Mr. Governor and not your excellency.

The Governor who made this statement after about 155 days at the helms of affairs in Lagos State, asked residents to stop addressing him as ‘Your Excellency’ because the Almighty, the Creator, the Protector” is the most excellent, and that no man can share his eternal qualities.

Speaking further, Mr. Sanwo-Olu said his performance as the governor in the past five months does not reflect the office he occupies which is celebrated as the paragon of excellence, a temple of perfection and a throne of purity.

He also said that his new title as ‘Mr. Governor’ will help to foster close ties with the people of Lagos.

Meanwhile, several Nigerians have reacted to the action of Mr. Babajide Sanwo Olu as he prefers to be called Mr. Governor. According to some Nigerians the nomenclature your excellency is not a requirement for governance.
