A Closing Argument for Sanwo-Olu
Lagosians will be faced with a simple choice in the upcoming gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections, as they decide whether to re-elect the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, or vote for one of two other candidates who lack the experience and vision required to lead one of Africa’s largest economies.
The first of these is Olajide Adeniran, a fringe candidate whose concept of “Lagos for Lagos” is reductionist and demonstrates a limited worldview.
The other is Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, a candidate with little to recommend him apart from his education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
His support for proscribed terror group IPOB and his participation in last year’s EndSARS protests demonstrate a lack of maturity and emotional intelligence required for political leadership.
In contrast, Sanwo-Olu has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to maintaining Lagos’s development agenda, particularly in the areas of housing, education, and healthcare.
He has also overseen the construction of multiple major road projects and transportation infrastructure, including the Red Line Rail Project.
Given these credentials, the clear choice for Lagosians is to re-elect Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu and give him another term to continue leading the transformation of Lagos that began in 1999.
