Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, has said that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will focus on more projects.

The commissioner, who spoke on “Lagos State In Focus” during the MITV programme, averred that the endorsement of the governor for re-election by the Governance Advisory Council (GAC) in Lagos State, was based on Sanwo-Olu’s remarkable achievements in projects execution.

Omotoso, who also described Sanwo-Olu as a man of integrity, said that the governor’s response during the COVID-19 pandemic, his infrastructural strides in road construction and transportation management, improvement in schools infrastructure and others, were some of the projects and programmes responsible for the GAC’s decision.

When asked if the push for another term would not cause a shift in focus, Omotoso said no such thing would happen.

He said the Blue Line and Red Line rail projects, Lekki-Epe Expressway, General Hospital, Ojo and many roads in Ikorodu were among the projects to be completed.

The commissioner said consultations with stakeholders on the planned resumption of tolling at the Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll-gate were still ongoing.

He said the Chrisland School incident, which he described as “a monumental family and societal tragedy,” was emotionally disturbing for parents, the school and the government.
