Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said that he has no intention of unseating the incumbent Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in 2023.
The Speaker in an interview aired on Channels TV on Tuesday, also endorsed Sanwo-Olu for a second term, based on the way he has positioned Lagos State on the path of growth, despite the State being hit by inadvertent crises in the past year.
He said Sanwo-Olu has been doing a “good job” in governing Lagos, stressing that the Governor must not be distracted on the assignment.
The lawmaker representing Surulere 1 Federal Constituency in the green chamber of the National Assembly mulled the idea that Sanwo-Olu be allowed to renew his mandate in the next general election, pointing that the Governor’s performance in the last two years has surpassed expectations.
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.”
