All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant for Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has promised to build his vision of taking the state to greater heights on the foundation laid by former governors, Bola Tinubu and Babatunde Fashola, if he wins the party’s ticket and eventually elected in 2019.

Speaking during his official declaration to contest the APC ticket with Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, at the City Hall yesterday, the former Commissioner for Commerce and Industry said he would restore the environment that has become the source of worry to Lagosians.

The aspirant, who is believed to be enjoying the backing of APC national leader, Tinubu, said he would work according to the party manifesto, which promised welfare package to the people.His words: “These values are the things that I believe and ready to defend. I will ensure their propagation. And they drive my present desire.

“If elected governor of Lagos next year, I will immediately embark on full restoration of the glory of the state by making the people the cornerstone of government.”
He said his administration would address the persistent gridlocks that make life nasty on the roads.

“My focal point shall be to provide the greatest good for the greatest number of the people of Lagos. I have invited you all here to join me in this journey, to take Lagos to new dimension by transforming the manifesto of our party to the programme of action.“I am making a clarion call to all our members that there is a lot to be done to achieve a Lagos of our dream. I present myself as a capable, competent and tested hand to make Lagos greater.”

“I promise to be a true party man in the real definition of the words and in running an inclusive government according to the ideology of APC and long term benefit of citizens.“Loyalty, in my view, is the currency of politics. I shall be loyal to the people of the state and leadership of the party,” he promised.
