The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has assured workers in the private and public sectors that his administration would not disappoint them.
The governor made the pledge on Thursday during a rally held at the Police College in Ikeja, where his re-election bid was endorsed by the leaderships of the Nigerian Labour Congress, and Trade Union Congress, in Lagos State.
In his address, Sanwo-Olu urged the workers to take the campaign for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and his second term bid to their respective neighbours.
He said, “You have come out in large numbers and I want to assure you that we are coming back bigger, stronger, and better for the general people of Lagos State. We will ensure the value of your lives is not compromised.
“I want to thank all of you for this great endorsement. We will not take it for granted. What this tells us is that we must do a lot more. That’s when your lives and that of your children will be better. We will not disappoint you.
“Going by this organised labour endorsement, I have no doubt we are coming back better and stronger. We will embark on governance much more than we have done and provide the best workplace for you to flourish and this endorsement is a confirmation that workers believe in our leadership and we will not take you for granted.”
On her part, the Chairman of the NLC in Lagos State, Funmilayo Sessi, said, “Before we embarked on this rally, we all agreed at our respective congresses to support Sanwo-Olu to continue as our Governor.
“We decided before today but we only came out to display our solidarity with him publicly. What we have done right in our house, we are showing to the world. This is the first time the organised labour in Lagos is taking an open position to endorse a candidate of a political party.”
In his address, the TUC chairman, Gbenga Ekundayo, lauded the Sanwo-Olu’s inclusive policies among citizens of the state.
