LAGOS State Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, were yesterday presented with their certificates of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The presentation was done at the INEC Lagos office, Yaba, by the INEC National Commissioner in charge of Lagos, Ondo and Ogun States, Dr. Adekunle Ogunmola
Speaking after receiving his certificate, Sanwo-Olu, thanked the leadership and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and voters who supported his election.
He also promised to run an inclusive government. He called on his opponents that lost during the March 9 election to support him in making the state enviable.
“I want to extend congratulations to all the other candidates that were not so successful, but I dare say that victory to one is victory to all. It is victory to all of us, it is a victory for the entire Lagosians. It is a call to order, it is a call that there is no victor no vanquished. All of us are on the same pedestal, that is, to make life a lot better for our people. That is why on the campaign train, we said we are going to run an inclusive government, we will bring about strategies that will take Lagos to greater heights.
“We are using this unique opportunity to open our doors; we don’t even have a door again, the doors are open for all our other col- leagues in the other parties that we are one and the same. Let us build the schools, the hospitals, traffic management, the public transportation, the environment to make Lagos a cynosure of the entire African race.”
