Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the All Progressives Congress (APC), governorship candidate in Lagos State has said that he will be in charge if elected as he is his own person despite endorsements.

Sonwo-Olu disclosed this on Sunday while speaking during the Platform’s governorship debate.
This was following a question by Jimi Agbaje, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, querying the ability of his APC rival to lead the state following his endorsement by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
He said, “I believe the question is to look at Lagosians and say I am going to be in charge, that the bulk is going to stop on his table.
“Mr. Sanwo-Olu had had a unique opportunity of running the state budget; I am my own person despite endorsements.”
Sanwo-Olu added, “I clearly know that what is on the ballot is a four-year tenure and I am not going to say that I am interested in an eight-year.
“If all of those promises that I have put here today I do not fulfill them for one reason or the other, I don’t think I will deserve to come back again.
“We are going to ensure that we create an environment where all innovative ideas will come into fruition very quickly.
“As we speak, I have deployed free Wi-Fi in 18 locations in Lagos, including all the higher institutions in Lagos and they are working. It proves to show that I’m not just saying it, I am doing it.”
He further listed his achievements as a commissioner in Lagos, including the introduction of the Lekki Free Trade Zone, adding that he was the right man to succeed Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as he has 13 and 17 years of experience in the public and private sectors respectively.
Sanwo-Olu, speaking on how honest his government would be, said, When I was in government, we do a quarterly budget review in which we become answerable, we become accountable and we see all of the numbers that come out from our budget estimate on a quarterly basis.
“Beyond that in my government is to set up a citizen engagement portal where all issues of concern will be popped out and we can escalate it to the governor’s office and (they) will get responses that will come directly to them.”
