Lagos State governor, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, has charged Lagosians resident in Abuja to reflect the spirit of Lagos and be law-abiding as they live peacefully in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Sanwo-Olu gave this counsel on Tuesday while speaking to newsmen after a tour of the Lagos House which has the staff of the State liaison office in Abuja, urging the Lagos indigenes to be good ambassadors of the state, even as he wished them well in their endeavours.
“I can only wish our people that reside in Abuja well, Nigeria is big for all of us. My advice is just for them to be law abiding, to continue to reflect the spirit of Lagos, continue to be good ambassadors of the state.
“Our government is open to them if they have good suggestions or ideas, I am in the liaison office, they can drop whatever suggestions they have for us and certainly it will get to us and by the time they hear news about Lagos, it will be good news,” Sanwo-Olu promised.
Governor Sanwo-Olu said it was imperative that he came to the liaison office to see his staff and have a firsthand feel of their working environment, feel their pulse and make them understand what the new government stands for.
“As a governor, I have got to see my office in Abuja, and also to know the staff and see the environment they work because they are part of us and they will reflect who we are and what we stand for as a state and as a government.
“The least I can do is to come around and feel their pulse to see the people that have my ears and listen to them. That is the least I can do,” he added.
It would be recalled that Mr Sanwo-Olu is the first governor to visit the State Liaison Office and this created excitement amongst staff and occupants of the four-storey building in the Central Business District Area of Abuja.
