The governorship candidate of Action Democratic Party (ADP) in the 2019 election, Babatunde Gbadamosi, has rated below average,the performance of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu 200 days in office.
The ADP candidate said Sanwo-Olu performance is low across all sectors of governance, stating that “the governor could have done better.”
“Sanwo-Olu needs to find his spine, he needs to find his backbone, he needs to find his will and execute what he said he will execute if elected the governor of Lagos state when we had that famous pre-election debate.
“The governor needs to wake up and sort out the lowest of the low hanging fruit,” Gbadamosi said.
The ADP chieftain said that Sanwo-Olu could achieve a lot more and a lot faster and in the strategic area of road construction.
In the area of transport development, Gbadamosi noted that the governor was not doing what he should be doing as the average Lagosian spends seven to eight hours in traffic every day.
“The Lagos -Badagry Expressway is a shame to 20 years of civilian governance in Lagos State despite the support received from the Federal Government and partners to redevelop the road.
“It is a shame to all of us Lagosians that we allow that road to get to such a deplorable state,” he said.
He said that the Lagos State Government could afford and should actually be paying N100,000 as minimum wage, considering the high cost of living in the state.
His mission, he says, is to support the incumbent government in office by pointing out how things can be done in a realistic and workable manner.
“It is not just about criticising and pointing out the flaws, it is about pointing out how well to achieve what we all want, which is good governance.
“So, we have to do whatever we can do to help the incumbent government to achieve good governance,” Gbadamosi said.
According to him, very many green areas are still not being built up in Lagos State because there are no roads to open up these areas.
“And the reason they are not built up is because there is no road. For instance, the Lekki -Ajah axis is still largely undeveloped. There’s no road; no coastal road.
“Imagine if we put a 10-lane expressway along the coastline, the area will develop; and if you build a solid infrastructure in Lagos, you make money,” Gbadamosi said.
