Pastor Peters Osawaru Omoragbon, former Governorship candidate in Edo State under the National Conscience Party (NCP) has appealed to Lagosians to come out en mass on Saturday, March 11, 2023, to vote for the performing Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Pastor Omoragbon who made his position known in a live broadcast on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, maintained that a vote for Governor Sanwo-Olu is a vote for continuity.
Omoragbon said “I am making this appeal tonight on behalf of Governor Sanwo-Olu, the current Governor of Lagos State, who is seeking his second and last tenure in office under the All Progressives Congress (APC) and why he should be allowed to have a second tenure.
“You will quite agree with me that within the last four years of Governor Sanwo-Olu’s governance, he has embarked on gigantic projects, projects that are so terrifying in terms of the massiveness and impact, not only on the economy for Lagos State, but by extension, the economy in Nigeria,” he said.
Omoragbon maintained that Governor Sanwo-Olu has implemented infrastructural projects and policies that are only comparable to what is obtainable in advanced countries. He pointed out that his imprimatur can be felt in transport infrastructure, railway, seaport, adding that he has also done well in healthcare system, among others.
He questioned rhetorically “Is it in transport sector? The Lagos railway system has been transformed to what is comparable to what is operational in Europe and America, or is it the seaport, the Lekki Seaport that has been created under this government, it is something that can only be possible in advanced countries, or are you talking about the healthcare delivery system?”
Omoragbon also reminded Lagosians of the commendable the role the governor played in containing the Covid-19 pandemic in Lagos State, adding that he worked day and night, giving updates, issuing guidelines and making sure lives were saved.
The Edo born politician who disclosed that he has lived in Lagos for more than 50 years said he was in the position to tell the world that Governor Sanwo-Olu has performed excellently well “I came to Lagos in 1970, had my education in Lagos and worked at the Federal Psychiatric Hospital Yaba where I retired in i985, I got married in Lagos and had all my children in Lagos; and I can tell what Lagos was before the advent of the current democracy and what Lagos is as at now.”
