2023: Sanwo-Olu Speaks On Funke Akindele, Jandor Gubernatorial Aspirations

 

Sanwo-Olu Reveals When Lagos Rail Lines Will Be Ready

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has shared his thoughts on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  Governorship Candidate, Olajide Adediran and his running mate Funke Akindele at the 2023 polls.

The governor stated that he would be voted for a second term because he had made achievement that could be seen and felt.

Sanwo-Olu, said this during a chat on Channels Television, Sunday Politics programme.

He insisted that his good deeds while in power will lead to a re-election.

He said: “I managed the emergency of the city. Today alone, there are emergencies that have been reported today alone.”

“I’ve recruited over 650 fire service men. I’ve bought 64 brand new trucks that you will come, I will invite you for commissioning.

“I spent over a billion to take off the refuse in Lagos. We’re creating a sanitary landfill site. That’s what we’re doing. We’re building 1618 kilometres of rigid pavement road that runs to tens of billions.

“We’re building the biggest market in the country because that’s what we’re doing,” Sanwo-Olu”

When he was asked if he considers Olajide Adediran and his running mate, Funke Akindele, as a threat, he replied: “So you know, like I said if you have an emergency, who would you call? What are your chances? Do you call the man that has the experience that has gone through the trenches before that has lived with it that understands what the issues are.

“That appreciate what challenge you have even at 3 a.m. or will you leave your chance to someone that doesn’t know where the dial is or that doesn’t even know what the issues of governance are? This is Lagos.

“This is an informed audience. This is not a tea party. We’re talking about real governance. We’re talking about the lives of 20-plus million Nigerians.

He added that Lagos cannot be left in the hands of someone who “cannot run a business that has 100 people.”
