The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday, applauded and celebrated Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu as he marks his second year in office.
The Lagos APC Spokesman, Seye Oladejo, gave the commendation to Sanwo-Olu in a statement in Lagos on Thursday, May 20.
He said that the governor had turned in an impressive mid-term report in spite of the challenges occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic recession, and the EndSARS protest.
Oladejo said that these unexpected setbacks and distractions had not derailed the Sanwo-Olu’s administration from the fulfillment of its electoral promises.
“The Lagos State government under Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has become the reference point; for good, focused, impactful, inclusive, responsible, responsive, innovative, and also humane governance.
“We are indeed convinced that Lagos State is in safe hands. He is indeed the man for the season.
“As a party, we are proud that you have kept the faith as our flag-bearer; and on course to fulfill our progressive manifestos to the delight of all Lagos residents.
“As the second half begins, we are convinced that all projects will be completed; and more impactful policies, programmmes, and also projects will be implemented as you finish strongly,” he said.
Oladejo said that, without an iota of doubt, Sanwo-Olu’s name would go down in history as the governor who took over at an unusual time in human history, rose, and excelled beyond the limitations of the enormous challenges.
He added that the early sign that Lagos residents were in for a blissful four-year term was the well-articulated THEMES agenda; by Sanwo-Olu which remained the main thrust of the social contract between the people and the government.
According to him, the acronym, THEMES, captures the whole essence of the expectations of the teeming populace; on the delivery of the proverbial dividend of democracy; by the government they wholeheartedly entrusted with their mandate, secured future, and general well-being.
Oladejo said that THEMES, which is the acronym for Traffic Management and Transportation, Health and Environment, Education and Technology, Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, Entertainment and Tourism and Governance and Security had become Sanwo-Olu’s marking scheme.
He applauded the governor’s efforts on traffic management and transportation which; had impacted residents’ economic activities, health, as well as security.
