BEING THE TEXT OF THE INAUGURATION SPEECH OF THE STATE   COORDINATOR OF SANWO-OLU AMBASSADORS, AMB. (OTUNBA) HAMMED GAFAR, AT THE INAUGURATION OF LGA/LCDA COORDINATORS AND THEIR CORE EXCO MEMBERS ON WEDNESDAY, 31ST AUGUST, 2022

 Protocols

I stand on all existing protocols, please. Yet, I must recognize my indefatigable Director GeneralAmb. (HajiaTai Elemesho- Okesanjo for her unqualified guidance.

 Why Are We Sanwo-Olu Ambassadors?

As technocrats cum politicians, we did not decide to follow our principal, His Excellency, Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu blindly. No!

We drew our inspiration from the remarkable political trajectory of the high level of competence, associated with the APC regimes in our State. A factor the Governor has been upholding with great zeal!

Therefore, the emergence of His Excellency, Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu for second term became a warm welcome development for us, more so when we reviewed his achievements in the State, and more especially in tandem with his THEMES Agenda. From transportation to health, education, infrastructural development, empowerment, and security, no doubt, our Mr. Sellable has been delivering democratic dividends to us in all LGA/LCDA in Lagos State, in these past three years of his dynamic leadership, as the helmsman of the Lagos State government.

We can confidently summarise our governor’s achievements partly by quoting Amb. Sijibomi Ogundele of Sujimoto Engineering as follows: “We may all be in denial, but Lagos state has sustained lots of entrepreneurs and businesses, giving us the opportunity to thrive irrespective of the common issues we face! According to the statement, “Lagos is a product of the extreme efforts and great visions of exceptional leaders and politicians, working tirelessly for the good of the state. Despite the global challenges, we have seen Governor Sanwo-Olu rehabilitate 632 inner roads, 361 sectional roads, 1.4km flyover and dual carriage road delivered, 34 roads delivered at Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Kosofe and Shomolu and many other infrastructural developments in the health and educational sectors”. What a tip of the iceberg!

 Our Beliefs

In view of our tremendous belief in the abilities of Mr. Governor, our Group, the Sanwo-Olu Ambassadors, cued effortlessly into his THEMES Agenda when we held a health outreach tagged Free Health Talk/Diagnosis for well over 100 Lagos residents from all the 20 primary LGAs of the State. The event was held at the Oduduwa Crescent, GRA, Ikeja BOSCO office on 27th July 2022. All the beneficiaries of the program went home with mouthwatering gift items from the Governor’s office.

Let’s I forget, that we are seizing this opportunity to sincerely appreciate the management and staff of The Good News Hospital Services as well as Miss Fatima Agboke, a Naturopathic practitioner for their immeasurable support leading to the successful delivery of the Free Health Talk/Diagnosis event.

We were encouraged to start in this manner when we recall the velocity with which our Mr. Sellable confronted the extermination of the global COVID-19 pandemic, which promised to wipe out humanity through its devastating effects in the years 2020 to 2021. Our principal did not only lead the fight against the pandemic from the Frontline, he deployed unprecedented financial and human resources at his disposal to frontally and decisively contain the dangerous pandemic, from attaining its determination to wipe out the human race.

Rather than crying over the paucity of funds as experienced by other governments, His Excellency, Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu demonstrated a high level of financial management by ensuring that the vehicle of governance was not grounded at any point in time during and after the global economic meltdown occasioned by the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Strategic Thinking

We firmly believe that no one does some things in the same way and expects different results. Thus, at Sanwo-Olu Ambassadors, we are always thinking outside the box, and as such are desirous of selling our principal and other candidates directly to the private sector operators, considering their none partisan nature, and the large public for their unrelenting support. The same strategic thinking defines our means of reaching out to the larger public.

We are determined to exhibit political sagacity by making an unequivocal statement with the fast-approaching general elections by keeping Lagos APC at pole length positions ahead of other parties in State politics in particular and Nigeria in general.

Therefore, any politician, amateur or professional, dreaming of unseating the APC government in the State can best be described as suffering from schizophrenia psychosis because such person or persons must have been losing touch with reality due to their confusing thoughts.

As such, this group can be likened to a moving train in the political space of Lagos State.

Hence, we’ve been engaging in sensitization of the electorate by first urging them to register for their PVC. We have equally been calling on them to arm themselves with the card in order to massively vote for our achieving governor come 2023.

Appreciations

We took these sensitization campaigns first to the State Headquarters of the APC where our team, ably led by the indefatigable Director General, Amb. Hajia Tai Elemesho , were warmly received by the leadership of the State Executive of our party, the APC, including the State Chairman, Hon. Cornelius Ojelabi, the State Woman Leader, Chief (Mrs.) Jumoke Okoya-Thomas as well as other Governor Advisory Council (GAC) members like Chief Mutiu Are, and the APC Zonal Organising Secretary (South West), Hon. Lateef Ibirogba.

From there on, we’ve not been looking back in our sensitization efforts which had taken us to the Iyaloja General, Chief (Mrs) Folashade Tinubu-Ojo, Chief (Mrs) Comfort Odumosu as well as the Iyalode of Lagos, Chief (Mrs) Fatima Binta Tinubu.

The trips had taken us to private sector operators from the leadership of the Special Committee on the Rehabilitation of Public Schools, as led by Mr. Hakeem Smith to Amb. Sijibomi Ogundele of the Sujimoto Engineering and Amb. (ChiefOdemayowa of Deluxe Residences Limited.

Mention must be made of the extremely warm receptions extended to us by all these aforementioned loving people. The Chairman of Onigbongbo LCDA, Amb. (Hon) Olakunle Olakanle for his unrelenting support for us and our principal, must equally not pass without mentioning.

We can’t conclude this appreciation note without recognising the tremendous support we’ve been receiving from our Patrons in persons of Chief (Mrs) Fatima Bintu Tinubu, the Iyalode of Lagos; Chief Mutiu Are, Hon. Wale Edun and Chief (Mrs) Jumoke Okoya-Thomas.

We are full of appreciation to you all.

 The Press Must Come With Clean Hands

While considering the importance of the press as the fourth realm of justice in a political space, we were at the head office of the City People Magazine where the Chairman/CEO, Amb. Seye Kehinde was inducted as a member of the group in the presence of his management team. At the City People office, we emphasized the need for the news media to remain above board in their coverage of events preceding, during and after the 2023 general elections.

Lastly, our call on the outgoing MHR representing Mushin Federal Constituency, Hon. Babatunde Yusuf Ayinla (BYA) could be described as a valedictory visit to the erudite legislator in our appreciation to him for his good representation of our people at the legislative arm at the federal level.

 Inauguration of LGA/LCDA Officers As A Watershed

Today’s event, therefore, marks a watershed in political support of our principal to clearly demonstrate to some politicians that true political supports transcend the social media realm into real life. As such, we are inaugurating the coordinators and other members of their core executive arms of almost 40 LGA/LCDAs in the State as part of our strategic plans to take the forthcoming campaigns to the doorsteps of the electorates, as we are aiming at landslide victory for our dear principal, His Excellency, Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu. As such, we are out to make an emphatic statement that the rewards of good governance should only be reciprocated with an overwhelming vote of confidence in our performing governor through the ballots in the forthcoming election.

 Conclusion

Conclusively, and as a reminder of the inclusiveness nature of our Mr. Sellable, again, that Amb. Sijibomi Ogundele’s remarks during a sensitization visit to him on Monday, 8th August, 2022, readily comes to heart.

“Leadership for me is not in titles and appendages, rather it is about being hands-on and taking responsibility, which is reflective of the government of Sanwo-Olu, irrespective of any shortcomings. My only concern is that his many achievements are not being applauded and amplified in the media as it should be, therefore the citizenry are not aware of these laudable accomplishments.“I saw Governor Sanwo-Olu speaking yesterday as a guest on Channels Television, and you can see a very active and hands-on leader, who not only understands the task but is also fully involved in the complex process of regulating Okadas on our highways, to creating a 10km bypass road from Chevron to Freedom Road; displaying an exceptional understanding of LAWMA’s inner-workings and the debt structure mechanism of Lagos state. Speaking on the government’s activities on the Apapa road, I was blown away by his ability to recall the number of trailers plying the Apapa axis and what the government is doing specifically to free up the commercial area. These and many more are a testament to the fact that Governor Sanwo-Olu is not just a man of words, he walks the talks with verifiable proof, and is the right CEO to continue the Lagos state project”.

Amb. Ogundele continued saying:

“For me, the type of CEO I will hire is a CEO that has a track record of “I have done it before” not the “I will do it” type.

“Security for Sanwo-Olu is the most important part of his government because he recognizes that without a secure state, there cannot be development. Lagos economy which is larger than Ghana cannot take security for granted and that is why he reiterated that his administration is not waiting on anybody before it secures its people. According to him, “In the last three and half years, we have been supporting all the security architecture in the state. He also reiterated that the Lagos state government has just received over 21 containers filled with security and IT infrastructure, to bring 21st-century security and camera monitoring system to every part of the state”.

The latest addition to the plethora of dividends of democracy to Lagosians is the Lagos rail project, which our amiable governor has promised us would be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year 2022.

According to His Excellency, “We started our journey from the National Arts Theatre. We are on tracks from Orile-Iganmu to Alaba Station and to Mile 2 station and we were all taken around the stations which we all call concourse. We are happy that the contractors are working seven days a week.”

The governor continued assuring us that “The Blue and Red Rail lines commence operation by the last quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023… I am also happy that additional that there are additional trains that we have purchased.”

What other proof do we need to consciously follow an Achiever in His Excellency, Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu to make Lagos greater!

On the note above, I wish this beautiful gathering a successful inauguration, while we urge the ‘tear-nylon’ coordinators and their core EXCO members to have successful tenure in office as we charge them to get set for the task ahead, which is a must-win for us!

Thank you.

Sanwo-Olu Ambassadors … Greater Lagos Assured!
