A frontline human right and pro-democracy fighter, Comrade Omobanke Razaq has remarked that Lagos State Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, has confirmed that he is really a God sent Messiah to the people of the state.
Omobanke made this remark at a press conference he addressed in Lagos over the weekend on behalf of his group, Labour & Workers’ Welfare Advocacy Centre, where he said the governor’s performance just in 12 months has convinced the people that he was the right candidate for 2019 governorship election.
The youth leader declared that when critically appraising this administration’s achievement in the last one year, one would entertain no doubt that, Sanwo-Olu along with his team of superb professionals has proven to be a round peg in the round hole.
More interestingly, Omobanke observed that even reasonable members of the opposition, as well as political doubting Thomases, have admitted that this All Progressives Congress (APC) material is an invaluable asset to the state.
While stating that even the blind can testify that Sanwo-Olu’s achievement in the state just in one year is visible and concrete, the youthful group leader said a few examples would suffice the claims.
Having realised the importance of the workforce in any administration across the world, handing over 35 new buses for Civil Servants immediately he assumed office on Monday, June 3, 2019, is a testimony that he has experience as an insider.
In addition to that, his commitment to pay more than N35, 000 minimum wages has also endeared him to the workers who see him as their friends, Omobanke observed, asserting that, that alone is enough to see Sanwo-Olu as an administrator that is hell-bent in boosting the morale of the workforce.
And it is natural for the workforce with boosted morale and soaring purchasing power to be committed to the state and thereby assist the economy to have a forward leap to buoyancy; Omobanke told his spelt bound audience.
Sanwo-Olu has left no one in doubt that he was around to serve when at arrival; he signed, without delay, N873b 2019 Budget; Neighbourhood Safety Corp Agency; Domestic Service Provider Registration and Lagos State House of Assembly Service Commission (Amendment) bills into Law on Monday, June 3, 2019.
And all the above-mentioned sectors of the economy have hit the ground running since then and, one year after, the state is savouring the gains said Omobanke, adding that, the governor’s visit to the LASTMA Office and the announcement of an increase in the officers’ allowance informed the reformed, humane, responsible and responsive personnel on our roads.
Still, itemising Sanwo-Olu’s achievements that made his first anniversary in office eventful, the right crusader mentioned the Flag-Off of the construction of Lagos-Badagry Expressway last July, a step that sent the resident into wild jubilation because of the relief the project would bring to them after several years of traffic headache along the route.
Omobanke did not forget to include declaration last July also of toll-free passage at the toll plaza on Lekki-Epe Expressway to allow traffic consultants to the government carry out a comprehensive study of traffic flow around Lekki-Ikoyi-Victoria Island axes.
Exhibiting he true nature as a humble and compassionate human being, Sanwo-Olu also warmed his way into the hearts of the citizenry when he visited the hospital in Ijegun to assess the situation of the pipeline fire survivor, the activist pointed out, saying such an executive humanness would remain evergreen the mind of the victims and members of their families.
Concluding, Omobanke said how Sanwo-Olu’s administration handled the advent of COVID-19 in the state is heart-warming saying kudos were given to him and his team by two international outfits, the United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization (WHO), not misplaced.
The impressed activist, therefore, urged the people to double their cooperation and supports for him with a view to making the first year’s performance a child’s play when juxtaposed against his second year’s achievements.
