Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has commended Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his quality of leadership since he became governor in 2019.
Tinubu, who spoke on Friday at the inauguration of the Agege Pen-Cinema Bridge, said the last administration was taking the state in the wrong direction before Sanwo-Olu’s emergence.
Akinwumi Ambode, who failed to secure a second term, was the governor of the state between 2015 and 2019.
He commended the governor and his cabinet members, saying they have demonstrated unequal determination to redevelop and rebuild for the people of Lagos.
“Sometimes in 2017-2018, the ship of this state seems to have headed in a very wrong direction. Ever since Babajide became the captain of the ship of our state, he has turned it round to the right direction of progress, development, and good leadership quality.
“Both of you (Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat) and the entire cabinet have demonstrated unequal determination to redevelop, rebuild for the people of Lagos. You have made us seen a fine and determined government for the progress and quality of life of our people,” Tinubu said.
The former governor of the state also advised youths to shun thuggery, stating that there is no development without peace.
