The prayer of every father is to see his son bask in the euphoria of his legacy while making efforts to keep the records straight and adding new records to the ones already made in the days of yore.
Bola Tinubu will obviously be a proud father to see how history has unfolded since 1999 when he took over the administration of Lagos as the Governor up till 2019 when Babajide Sanwo-Olu took over the administration of Lagos State Government till date.
Since he mounted the saddle, Sanwo-Olu has fired from all cylinder and breaking new grounds with the actualization of his T.H.E.M.E.S. agenda which has served as the bedrock of his development agenda. During the 2019 electioneering campaign, Sanwo-Olu campaigned on what will be his priorities. He had during his campaign revealed that Project T.H.E.M.E.S. is an acronym for six strategic developmental agenda which are as follows – Traffic Management and Transportation, Health and Environment, Education and Technology, Making Lagos a 21st Century Economy, Entertainment and Tourism as well as Security and Governance. No one thought that these could be achievable.
So many thought that they were only agenda on the front pages of newpapers to excite the people to his favour, but Sanwo-Olu reinstated, by actions, that in the progressive political dynasty where he comes from, leaders walk their talks. This is very similar to when Tinubu took over Lagos in 1999. Tinubu defied the gloom predictions of all and sundry who witnessed the realities of Lagos at that time. Lagos was described as a huge urban jungle that was fast disappearing under a mountain of refuse. Tinubu working with his smart team of competent people turned the ugly situation around.
To the obvious amazement of everyone, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has again defied the predictions of people with his laudable projects in the different sectors and fields of human endeavour, in just three years in office!
