Our attention has been drawn to the now familiar lamentation and hallucination of the Lagos State Labour Party Governorship Candidate, Chinedu Rhodes-Vivour about winning the March 18 election.
While we empathize with the budding politician on the dazing and dizzying impact of the defeat, it is advisable for him to desist from acts that are capable of disrupting the peace of the state.
He threatened to make the state ungovernable if the election results did not favour his warped imagination. There is no doubt that his disposition to anarchy is not representative of the position of true and well meaning Lagosians. That is not who we are.
The results of the Governorship and House of Assembly elections are the realistic and true reflection of the preference of the electorate.
It was a referendum on the remarkable achievements of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his team who excelled in the face of daunting odds.
It was a vote for tested , trusted, compassionate and committed leadership rather than an infantile and needless experiment that was bound to set our state back.
Lagosians spoke eloquently and loudly for a candidate who understands their expectations with the institutional experience to move our state forward.
While we understand the shock that came with the disappointment of the crash of the crass opportunism as a result of falsehood and propaganda, the experience of Chinedu’s four earlier electoral losses should come handy.
We want to appreciate Lagosians who trooped out to vote for our party as an expression of confidence to continue on the path of progress that has given our state a pride of place in the federation.
We want to assure all and sundry that the trust and confidence will never be taken for granted. We will definitely fulfill our part of the social contract.
Our government will continue on the path of non-discrimination, inclusiveness, compassion and total dedication.
