Governor-Elect of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that in the first 90 days or so, they are hoping they will have a working government in all the cabinets
He spoke about his plans to address traffic which is a major issue in Lagos state.
Sanwo-Olu said that those who will work with him and his deputy Dr Obafemi Hamzat must share in their vision.
Sanwo-Olu said; “There are so many intelligent people in Lagos. It’s just for us to identify them. Some could work full time, some part time, others could be technocrats or politicians but the bottom line is for us to identify square pegs into square holes and round pegs into round holes. That’s number one.”
“Number two, those who would work with Dr Hamzat and I must share our vision. They have to be on the same page with us from day one. The moment a politician or technocrat is appointed, he or she should see himself as a commissioner or staff adviser of Lagos, not for a sect or an area or jurisdiction.”
“We are out to empower the people of Lagos state… These are the basic things, we will not compromise. Femi and I have been on this journey for the past eight or nine months. So, immediately we come on board, we will organise a crash course for them (cabinet members) to see where we are going. The moment we all see a common vision, it will be easier for us to drive a common agenda. But I can say Lagosians will be happy with us when we finally bring out those names.”
He also said he would make all the major appointments of his government officials in the first 90 days.
