Sanwo-Olu Promises Inclusive Governance


The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that his administration will focus on an all-inclusive, “human-centric” governance in his second term in office.

The governor restated his commitment to ensuring that no one is left behind in the governance structure with the THEMES+ agenda, pledging that both soft and hard infrastructure would receive adequate attention.

Sanwo-Olu spoke on Sunday at the second term inauguration thanksgiving service held for him and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, at the Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina, Lagos.

He said, “It will certainly be a second term that Lagosians should expect a lot more from us. What we have promised is a THEMES+ agenda which is human-centric. It is an agenda that takes into account everything in THEMES agenda and adds a bigger flavour to it, a plus component, which itself will ensure that no one is left behind.

“We have learned from the last four years and we want to build a better inclusive governance in which not only will we be doing a lot of hard infrastructure but we also want to do a lot of soft infrastructure since that will touch the lives of our people directly; specifically palliatives that will bring succour and better relief for our citizens even in a difficult time with global economic issues.

“Our citizens need to understand that though the government cannot do everything, we need to be able to bring them out of poverty and speak to what their needs are. So, it is a purposeful human-centric agenda that will ensure that no one, no gender, no tribe, or religion will be left behind. And we are holding ourselves accountable to that.”
