Satisfy Lagosians, Not Godfathers, SDP Candidate Tells Sanwo-Olu

Adetokunbo Pearse, Lagos Governorship Candidate of the Social Democratic Party in the 2019 General Elections, on Wednesday advised the state new Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to satisfy the people and not godfathers.


Pearse, a university lecturer, made the appeal in an interview with newsmen.

Pearse noted that Sanwo-Olu won the March 9 gubernatorial election through popular votes, and advised that Lagos residents should be at the centre of his administration’s policies and programmes.

“I will advise him (Sanwo-Olu) to realise that it was the people of Lagos who voted for him and not godfathers.

“He should realise that we are a deficit in education, infrastructure and deficit in housing. Road congestion is still perennial,” he said.

According to him, without a permanent solution to gridlock in the state, its economy cannot grow to fullness.

Pearse urged Sanwo-Olu to review sources of internally generated revenue of the state and block all wastages in order to expedite infrastructure development.
