The Governor-elect of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has vowed to end the gridlock within the first 60 days of his administration.
Sanwo-Olu disclosed his intention on Saturday at a congratulatory dinner reception organised in his honour by his classmates; the Executive Master of Business Administration class, University of Lagos, 1998/2000 set at the Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi.
During an interactive session with his class mates, when asked about the trailers causing gridlock in Apapa, he said, “The Apapa trailer issue; it’s a campaign issue; it’s very serious. I’m going to take it very seriously. I believe that it is something that we are going to solve in the first 60 days of our government. Whatever is going to be required of us, we will take them out.”
“There is a lot of politics being played around there. But no, it cannot be the way we’ll continue to live. We cannot continue to give excuses.”
At the dinner, they presented him a policy document designed by them, which contained their ideas and suggestions on some of the actions he could take in office to have a successful tenure. They also asked him specific questions and his plans concerning them.
The governor-elect, however, said as a long-term solution, his administration would develop a port in Badagry to ease the pressure on Apapa.
