Present Lagos state Governor Elect Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Thursday, urged workers in the State to brace up and contribute their quota to the development of the State, saying  they cannot afford to fail Lagosians at this critical point

Addressing the civil servants during his meeting with them at the Secretariat, Alausa Ikeja on Thursday, May 30, 2019 Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, acknowledged that there were challenges, but urged the workers not to be discouraged, but rather put on the right attitude to work. “I just want to say to Lagosians that new things will begin to happen.”

The governor said, “there are issues and that is why there is a word ‘issue’, there will be issues, there will be challenges,  but out of it, looking at all your faces, we cannot afford to fail the citizens at this period.  So, my charge is this; whatever  we know that we are not doing so well even in the period of Ramadan, let’s ask God for forgiveness.”

Earlier,  The Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola (HOS) introduced the Governor to the workers after which they accompanied him on a walk to the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, where they sang different songs to his delight.

The Governor further advised the workers to be change agents, promising that their concerns would be addressed, but that the workforce must reciprocate his good intention through hard work, and innovations to bring about the desired changes and development. “I know that when we take care of you, you will take care of Lagosians and so those are the promises I want to draw from all of you.”

He urged them  to think out of the box. He gave assurance that issues surrounding the minimum wage would be addressed, promising to ensure that the take-home pay of workers will be good enough.

“On the issue around the minimum wage, we are going to sort that out very soon and I will make sure that whilst we do the work that we are meant to do, your take home will begin to take you home, but Lagosians have to feel it from day one from the way we speak to them and from the way we take their records.”
