Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has declared 2022 a year of consolidation, to complete all ongoing projects and significantly advance the journey towards the Greater Lagos initiative.

Sanwo-Olu, in his New Year message at the 2022 Thanksgiving Service, said the vision of having the largest rice mill in Sub-Saharan Africa and one of the largest in the world would become a reality this year, by the special grace of God.

“Also, this 2022 will witness a milestone in the rail transportation system in our state, as we expect the 37km red and 27.5km blue rail projects to commence commercial operations between the last quarter of this year and first quarter of 2023.

“Equally, construction work on the 38km Fourth Mainland Bridge ­– which will be the longest in Africa – and the Opebi/Mende link bridge will commence this year,” he said.
 
The Commissioner for Home Affairs, Anofiu Elegushi, thanked God for making Lagosians witness another year, saying the Sanwo-Olu administration was living no stone unturned at ensuring the security of Lagosians.

He urged the residents to be law-abiding and adhere to COVID-19 protocols. He also listed projects and programmes by the Sanwo-Olu administration to make live better for the residents.
 
There were special prayers, led by pastors from various denominations, for the governor and his family, the legislative and judicial arms, the civil servants and residents.
