An activist and President, Campaign for Dignity in Governance (CDG), Comrade Razaq Olokoba has taken a critical look at the performance of the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu in his first 100 days in office and admitted that, “he is on course.”
Olokoba, who described Sanwo-Olu’s administration as government of redemption expressed delight that, all areas that have been lacking attention for the past four years are being addressed with Midas touches.

According to him, the crucial aspect of the society which is Road Network is being handled with dispatch, reminding that, “road network is so significant that, there is virtually nothing you want to do that you would not need road directly or indirectly, so, if the road is in shamble, a lot of things would be in shamble.”
The youth leader, who said the economy of every country is tied to good road network also explained that, besides the economy that would be boosted, free and uninterrupted traffic flow would contribute substantially in curbing crime and banditry.
“Thankfully enough, all the vital roads in Lagos have been given face lift while repairs on others are undergoing face lift. The continental road we have which is Lagos-Badagry road, the contractors are back on site. Then the neighbouring roads that link major streets and major cities are also being given attention,” Olokoba stated.
The right activist said the governor deserves commendation over the effects of his economic policies in Lagos State that have started germinating, pointing out that, “people on the street who do daily transactions on the road like selling recharge cards, roasted plantain, okada riders, Danfo drivers, tri cyclists and other small scale businesses, are beginning to feel the impact of the new economic policies of the government.”

On Sanwo-Olu’s cabinet, the CDG boss described it as an added advantage to his government, asserting that, they are array of tested, trusted hands and new breeds with superb pedigrees which makes them a combination of elders with wisdom and youth with strength.
“In fact, we have seen that Sanwo-Olu has done so much in a very little time. And I can imagine what Lagos would look like in the next four years! And what Lagos would be is what Sanwo-Olu has promised to make it look like. That is, taking the state to the next level, the level of prosperity. So, Sanwo-Olu in office is a road to proper Eldorado,” Olokoba stressed.
In conclusion, the youthful human rights crusader who urged the people to remain committed to what the government is doing added that, by and large, people’s goodwill is very important to the government, advising that, “criticism should be constructive, corrective and in good faith to make the society better for all and sundry.
