It is now incontrovertible to the public glare devoid of any form of pretences or political undertones, that Lagos state Governor, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-olu had maintained the legacies of our heroes past, through the sustenance of good and sane legacies.
It had also underscores cynicism of those playing politics with human lives with a view to attaining their selfish economic growth and political feat , without recourse to posterity.
It was not in the public domain, the case of the Lagos state Governor’s chef, Hilda Baci a non- Lagosian , but operated in the first citizen of Lagos state kitchen in the last four years as official cook engaged by the state government.
This development is far away from public beliefs and consternation that everything about Lagos state Governor, from the private to official aides are all from one extraction, or to nail the nail on the head from “Yoruba” extraction.
This is one out of Lagos state Governor’s many gestures towards ordinary and average Nigerians towards realizing their ambition and potentials no matter where they came from in this part of the country.
His strong believe in the Nigerianisation of all and sundry irrespective of creed, colour, religion, section and extraction had come to full glare without any iota of pretences.
For providing the enabling environment from the kitchen of not only the first citizen of Lagos state, but a sitting Governor of a state portrayed the high level of tolerance, mien and candor displayed by Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-olu of Lagos state.
This has revealed that the activities of naysayers is been countered by the continuous display of patriotic zeal and disposition in the administration of Lagos state over the years.
The Governor had also proven wrong those whose strong believe in Lagos is for one particular section wrong in his appointments, employments and engagements of Nigerians in the cosmopolitan Lagos state.
Posterity will continue to judge the Lagos state Governor, for not only providing the enabling environment and opportunity, but solidarity visit to his chef Hilda Baci including a call by the Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbanjo.
For chef Hilda Baci who is on her way to winning or eventually won the converted trophy, it will be a plus not only for the leadership of Lagos state, but Nigeria at large with rare display of leadership traits by Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-olu of Lagos state.
With this development towards the second lap of his administration, no doubt Lagos state will witness not only uneven developments, but leadership with both human and zeal to dispose raw qualities of leadership to the good people of Lagos state.
All hands must be on deck to support the second coming of Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-olu who had not only displayed transparency and accountability, but equity and equal opportunities among Lagosians and non Lagosians.
