The new Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu yesterday promised to work for a “greater Lagos” through the implementation of his “six pillars of development agenda”
The pillars, which he described as the framework that encapsulates his vision, include traffic management and transportation, health and environment, education and technology, making Lagos a 21st century economy, entertainment and tourism, as well as security and governance.
Sanwo-Olu said: “These six pillars of development represent our response to the yearnings of the people. They constitute the foundations that must be restored for future generations. Should we fulfil our promise and deliver on these pillars, we are most confident that we would have succeeded in setting Lagos on a new trajectory of economic growth and development that would be unprecedented in our entire history.”
The governor spoke at a colourful inauguration held at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Onikan, after taking the oath of office administered by Chief Judge Opeyemi Oke at 11.30 am, 15 minutes after the oath was administered on his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat.
It was a historic ceremony. Lagosians defied the morning downpour to witness the event, which kicked off around 11 am, following the opening prayers by the founder of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Dr. Abiodun Olukoya, and the Chief Imam of Lagos, Alhaji Suleiman Abou-Nolla.
