The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed how All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu revived the economy of Lagos State from bankruptcy in 1999.
Sanwo-Olu disclosed this at the closing of a three-day 22nd National Women’s Conference (NWC), organised by the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO).
The governor who was represented by the Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat urged women to use their strength to canvass votes for Tinubu in the 2023 general election.
He said: “The way to build the nation of our collective dreams is for women to mobilise their husbands, cousins and children to vote for Tinubu, who has a track excellent performance.
“We are a nation of history, but part of our problem is that we have forgotten our history; we have westernised ourselves and this has broken our developmental trend. How do we bring it back? We must bring it back by allowing people who have precedents to do the work. It is as simple as that.
“People forget that in 1999, Lagos State was bankrupt; this state did not have an ambulance in 1999. Only seven per cent of the roads were tarred in 1999. So, a lot has happened and the foundation was laid by Asiwaju Tinubu. If we want a nation our children and grandchildren will be happy with, even happier than us, it is time to vote for a man who has done it before. We must look at what people have done and how they did it.
“We are not being sentimental; we are just saying let us move our country forward. We belong to the nation of the disciplined and respected. We are a very important people, and the future of the black man in the world rests on Nigeria, and we should not miss this opportunity.”
