The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said his aspiration was to be appointed chief of staff until “God turned the table around.”
Sanwo-Olu made the pledge at a special prayer session organised by the Nasrul-Lahil-il-Fath Society (NASFAT)at its headquarters in Alausa, Ikeja, where promised to “carry everyone along”if elected.
“I will carry everyone along as a governor. In the NASFAT’s prayer for me, they advised me to choose good adviser and be a listening governor,” he said.
“Four years ago, my deputy wanted to be the governor and I was aspiring to be the chief of staff but now God has turned the table around.
“I will concentrate more, if elected the governor, on expansion of roads, building bridges and traffic control.”
Sanwo-Olu said he would give education the desired attention if elected, maintaining that bad leadership was the cause of the ongoing brain drain in the country.
“It’s a shame our youths are seeking greener pastures outside the country. In spite of our human and natural resources we are still poor due to bad leadership,” he said.
