With the sorry state of roads in Lagos metropolis, one will have assumed the new governor who came in with several promises and high expectations from residents of the state, to have started with repair of major roads but unfortunately he’s said to be spending high on frivolities.
While Lagosians are languishing in pains caused by daily traffic jam, Gov Babajide Sanwo-olu is busy using the state funds to sing praises of Nigeria Super Eagles at the ongoing AFCON 2019.
After winning Cameroun 3-2 in the ongoing AFCON in Egypt, Sanwo-olu donated N41million to the Super Eagles. A course many said has no direct impart on average Lagosian.
Some aggrieved resident of Lagos said “The money could have been used to solve the challenges confronting the State, especially in fixing some roads, renovating of schools and equipping security officials.
Some even said he is giving money to players who are as rich as him or even richer.
Reacting to the situation, APC Publicity Secretary, Mr Joe Igbokwe in a statement released on Tuesday, said “No one single governor can solve all the problems of Lagos in one term or two terms, otherwise Sir Mobolaji Johnson or Lateef Jakande would have solved all the problems of Lagos more than 30years ago,” he said.
