Lagos Governor Begins Electioneering Campaign, Launches Development Plan 2052
The Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has kicked off the electioneering campaigns with the launch of Lagos State Development Plan 2052.
A 30-year plan from 2022 to 2052, according to the Governor is to chart a growth path for the State.

The Governor also witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Lagos State Government and Del York Group for Lagos Film City as well as the MoU between the State Government and Siemens Energy for Electronics Technician training with Siemens Energy.
Governor Sanwo-Olu speaking on the 2023 governorship elections in Lagos State, said he believed the people of Lagos State will do the right thing in next year’s election by re-electing him.
He was bold to pronounce that he remains the best among the governorship candidates in the State based on his administration’s track records in the last three and half years in line with the THEMES developmental agenda for Greater Lagos.
“Today is the day that INEC officially flagged off campaigns for governorship and House of Assembly elections. And there is no better time for me to do my official flag-off than at an economic summit like this where we are talking about our city, our people and Greater Lagos. What we are talking about is real. People can feel and they can see it.
“Some people can come here to claim anything. Some candidates would go about and make a lot of noise. They don’t even know what governance is all about. We have done a lot and people can feel it. People know this is a government that works for them.
“It is not about us; it is really to create that enabling environment for them (the citizens) to do well. Lagos State has witnessed prosperity in the last three and half years even in the COVID environment and that is the trajectory in which we want to continue. So, tell the noisemakers that after the noise, there would be calm and Lagosians will truly understand what we are talking about.” The governor said.
Mr. Sanwo-Olu during the opening session of the Ehingbeti Economic Summit had received the letter of approval on the proposed Lekki International Airport from the Federal Government and this among others, according to him is a pointer to many good things to come to Lagos in the years ahead.
The Lekki International Airport is a proposed airport designed for a capacity of five million passengers and Cargoes.
