By Maryam Harun
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has asked residents to jettison the claim that Lagos was in bondage and needs freedom, saying, what the state needs is to strengthen it’s economic development.
Sanwo-Olu’s appeal to Lagosians was an apparent reaction to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate, Jimi Agbaje’s claim that the state was enslaved and need to be freed.
The APC candidate reacted to the allegations by Agbaje during a courtesy visit to the Palace of Akran of Badagry, De-Ahollu Menu-Toyi on Sunday.
He noted that the state had gone beyond issues of slavery, rather, what should be the clamour by all was how can Lagos leverage on its potential to improve it’s economic development.
Sanwo-Olu, who also visited monarchs under Badagry division with his running mate, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, argued that Badagry, like other party’s of the state has several opportunities, which when elected, intends to explore.
He added that Badagry has centers that could help drive the tourism in the state.
According to him, the historic heritage would be preserved and the economic independence will be enhanced.
Sanwo-Olu further promised, when elected, his administration will push for construction of a seaport within Badagry and completion of the Lagos-Badagry 10-lane road.
He assured the monarchs that these projects will be part of his administration infrastructural focal point.
The gubernatorial candidate noted that the plan would make the generations yet to come appreciate efforts of those before them.

He asked for support to push Lagos to a greater height.

The gubernatorial aspirant who was in the company of his Obafemi Hamzat and his campaign team were given a massive welcome on their entry into badagry.
