A former Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) in Lagos State Council, Alhaji Rafiu Olohunwa, has expressed delight at the re-election of Governor. Babajide Sanwo-Olu for a second term.
In his congratulatory message made available to journalists Wednesday in Lagos , Olohunwa said that Sanwo-Olu’s resounding victory in the election last Saturday was a confirmation of the confidence the residents have in him.
The former NURTW Chairman said that the governor’s sterling stewardship in less than four years in office in spite of the negative impacts of COVID-19 and the EndSARS# crisis endeared him to many residents who voted for him.
Olohunwa however tasked Sanwo-Olu to fulfil his campaign promises on provision of public intermodal transportation system as well as the timely completion of the Lagos Red Line and Blue Line rail projects.
“Your infrastructural development projects like the construction of the Lekki seaport, modern railway lines, roads and bridges are testaments of a tested and proven leader like your good-self.
“As a unifier, we appeal to you to use your good office to heal the wounds deliberately created by certain elements within the state in the run up to the just concluded governorship and House of Assembly elections” he said.
Olohunwa said that Lagos NURTW members, as critical stakeholders, have made huge sacrifices and worked tirelessly towards APC’s electoral successes to ensure continuity of Sanwo-Olu’s THEMES agenda in the state.
“It is gratifying to note that the contribution of votes of NURTW members in Lagos helped greatly in securing the victory for Sanwo-Olu.
“It is even more gratifying that the Lagos NURTW helped to secure Sanwo-Olu’s victory voluntarily, without any condition,” the former NURTW chairman said.
Olohunwa then expressed optimism that with Sanwo-Olu’s re-election, a greater Lagos of the peoples’ dream would arise as the State remained in safe and capable hands.
