The Governor of the state of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has been attacked by the recent announcement to abandon the title of “His Excellency.”
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that Sanwo-Olu announced Wednesday that it should no longer be considered “Your Excellency.”
In a statement that the Governor personally signed and made available to the Latest Nigeria newspaper , he pointed out that only God should carry those titles.
Latest Nigeria newspaper report that He said that as Governor, he is only a servant appointed by the people and as such should be called “Mr. Governor.”
This did not work well with some lakes and Nigerians on social networks, as they urged the Governor to concentrate on fixing the roads in the state. Some Nigerians went to their Twitter pages lamenting the state of Lagos.
Here are some comments collected by Latest Nigeria newspaper from Twitter:
@Badmanisdimka “Babajide Sanwo-Olu dropping the title of” His Excellency “is nice. So, Mr. Governor, can we move on to the part where all the roads are rebuilt? Please, the Syrians of Lagos are really suffering from leaving It’s not easy at the end of the month. Thanks in advance, sir.
@Sheddi_young “Either the governor of na Bros
or uncle governor or lord governor. A job we want to see!
@Oluwabukunmi_ “While Seyi Makinde is repairing roads, printing free copies of past questions for schools and basically working, his Pontius Pilate in Lagos worries that he will be called His Excellency or Mr. Governor. Tragic.”
@drainzdrip “Lagosian has never complained about his stupid title Sanwo-Olu. Whether you call yourself “Excellence” or Mr. Governor or Mr. Go-slow, even Mr. Pot-hole … Mr. Man, we just want a good government. You are becoming the most useless Governor in the history of Lagos. ”
@ Nedusam01 “A good lord governor. But we need to feel the gradual impact. More hard work is needed, sir.
@B_Soye “Really? Babajide Titles should not be the main issue here, there is the governance of the states that has been neglected.
“Can anyone serve this type of a” neglect of obligations “concern to worry about insults.
@Waleonlinee “Deliver good governance first, then we’ll see this issue of your title. Your Excellency, Mr. Governor!
@Dominic_Ebi “Oga if you want to be called Queen Elizabeth don’t wahala while you start working. Lagos is in a mess and everything we’ve seen about you is absolutely nothing. The presidents of your local governments are sleeping and you do nothing about it. Get to work, man.
@Dedonnse “The change of titles alone will not do the job. Once we had” Head of Service “and” Ogbeni “as governors, they all failed spectacularly. That said, could I start working now?
@BuchyOgba “Good for you, sir. Performance is the main problem, not titles. “
