THE Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, in an interview with Channels TV on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, praised Gov. Sanwo-Olu for the exemplary works he has been doing in Lagos State.
Rt. Hon. 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.”
He also mentioned that he has no plan to contest the Lagos State Governorship seat in the next election because he is content in his role as the number four citizen in the country.
He said: I don’t have any such plan and I don’t have an 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 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.”
The lawmaker representing Surulere 1 Federal Constituency reiterated that Gov. Sanwo-Olu is allowed to renew his mandate in the next general election, pointing that the Governor’s performance in the last two years has surpassed expectations.
