 Lagosians Set Agenda for Governor-Elect Sanwo-olu

Victory of Mr Babajide Sanwoolu of the All Progressives Congress {“APC”) at the just concluded 2019 Gubernatorial elections in Lagos, has generated heated discussions in the state on policy direction and priority sectors that should be addressed.

Mr Kunbi Oguneye CEO, Alpha Fortress who voted at the Ipewu/Mekunwen Ireti Primary School Polling Unit, Ikoyi emphasised infrastructure which he saw as critical to a state with a population of over 20 million people.

He advised Sanwoolu to invest in human capital development, which would cover healthcare and education.

For him the healthcare service in Lagos, should be one that will provides opportunity for improved infant mortality.

“ People should have access to first and secondary healthcare services in times of emergency and first aid attention in the event of minor injuries” Oguneye said.

The Alpha Fortress CEO tasked the new Governor to focus on providing basic and functional education in Lagos, especially in the areas of technical and vocational development.

In sum, Oguneye emphasised infrastructure, health care and education as primary priorities the new administration should address.

On his part Mr Rotimi Oyekan , CEO of Phoenix Global Capital said, “I don’t think it is possible to solve all the problems in four years, but work should start in earnest on managing the chaotic urban slums that have spread in the state”

Oyekan called on the Sanwoolu administration to concentrate on providing infrastructure to inner city parts of the state, thereby encouraging sustainable economic activities outside central city locations within the state.

Mr Tayo Oviosu Founder, Paga said, the big issues that the Sanwoolu administration must address including providing jobs, expanding the economy, and creating an enabling environment for businesses, is the multiplicity of taxes in various parts of Lagos and harassment by local officials on dubious “small” taxes.
