Despite the fact that Lagos State has been hit by unforeseen crises in the past year, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has received praise for his efforts to put the state on the path of progress. The validation came from the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, who praised the Governor’s competency and leadership style.

Gbajabiamila said Sanwo-Olu has been doing a “good job” running Lagos in an interview aired on Channels TV on Tuesday, stressing that the Governor must not be distracted from his duty.

Sanwo-performance Olu’s in the last two years has exceeded expectations, according to the member of the National Assembly representing Surulere 1 Federal Constituency in the green chamber.

Gbajabiamila said: “The present Governor of Lagos State (Sanwo-Olu) is doing a good job. The fact that we had a one-term Governor at one time doesn’t mean it is going to be the same forever. This Governor is doing a good job under the current circumstances. It’s been a difficult time in his last two years and he has come out well. So, why should anyone upset the apple cart? I think he (Sanwo-Olu) is doing a good job.”

The Speaker also clarified his rumored aspiration to run for governor of Lagos in 2023, stating that he had “no urgent plan” to run. He claimed that the task ahead of him as the country’s No. 4 citizen was vast and difficult enough for him to be distracted by the rumor.

When asked if he has any ambitions for governorship, Gbajabiamila said: “That (question) provokes a smile. No, I don’t have any such plan and I don’t have immediate plan. I have a job I am doing right now; it’s a very tough job. Sometimes, it’s the most difficult job and I say it to people in the world. People don’t understand that, but this is not a forum I’m going to break it down.

“I don’t want distractions. I am working as a Speaker of the House of Representatives with a lot of responsibilities on my shoulder right now. Any other thing would be a distraction. As for Lagos State Governorship? I have not even thought about it. Why? Because, the present Governor is doing a good job.”
