Lagos Governor Sanwo-Olu seeks re-election to continue development projects

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, stated in an interview on Wednesday that he is seeking a second term in office to continue his development projects in the state. He urged voters to base their decisions on individual track records and experiences rather than party affiliations. Sanwo-Olu, who is running on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), emphasized his prior experience as a top-level manager in a bank and his understanding of what it takes to govern a megacity like Lagos. He faces opposition from the Labour Party's Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and the People’s Democratic Party's Olajide Adediran in his re-election bid. Despite APC's loss to the Labour Party in Lagos State at the presidential election, Sanwo-Olu and APC chieftains believe that the governor's first-term performance will be rewarded with votes in the upcoming election. Sanwo-Olu highlighted his administration's achievements in infrastructural development, including five concurrent overhead bridge projects in Ebute Metta, Yaba, Mushing to Onipanu, Ikeja, and Ayoola Coker at Iju. He also revealed the government's measures to prevent accidents, such as the physical barrier, gated barrier, and signalization to notify oncoming trains.
