Lagosians Roast Sanwo-Olu For Asking Them To Call Him Mr. Governor
Yesterday, Wednesday, 6th of October 2019, Lagos State Governor , Babajide Sanwo-Olu, tweeted that henceforth he wish to be referred to as “Mr. Governor ” and not “His Excellency” and the door of hell opened! Lagosians poured out their anger oh him.
Sanwo-Olu wrote :
Fellow Lagosians, as I embrace the name Mr. Governor, I have come to the conclusion that for us to change the narrative of governance, we have to strip down this seeming symbol of executive arrogance that commands popular obeisance.
Executive arrogance that undermines the democratic role of citizens as the masters of those they have elected and appointed to serve. It is a conviction that I believe will send the right signals to all politicians and civil servants that service to the people has brought us here.
It is the duty we are obliged to do. It is the responsibility that we bear wherever we find ourselves; whenever we are called to serve.
Only God, the Almighty, the Creator, the Protector is the Most Excellent. No man can share His eternal qualities.
Thenceforth, I wish to be addressed simply as Mr. Governor, a title that will constantly remind me that I have been chosen out of so many fellow compatriots to lead a collective salvage of our political economy.
A salutation that sanitises the paraphernalia of office and reminds us all of our imperfections and mortality. To give official effect to this announcement, I shall issue tomorrow an executive order that will formally ensure full compliance with this new policy.
Lagosinas on Twitter tweeted back to him that even if he wants to be called ‘‘Bros Governor” or any other name, what matters to them is that he works, particularly on fixing the bad roads in the state. Read their tweets below:
