Lagos Gov. Sanwo-Olu Receives Vanguard Award Says It Means A lot To Him
The Vanguard Personality of the Year Award meant a lot to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, who said it will serve as a continual reminder for him and his staff to work harder for Lagosians.
Sanwo-Olu was presented with the award among other category winners at the Eko Hotels and Suites on Victoria Island, amid pomp and circumstance.
The highlight of the ceremony, which was arranged by Vanguard Media Limited, was when Sanwo-Olu was presented with his award certificate in person.
“I feel immensely delighted to receive the Vanguard Personality Accolade from the Vanguard Newspapers Group,” the governor remarked in response to the award.
“The award means a lot to me. This prestigious award will be a constant reminder to me and my team to perform better to outdo ourselves in the current year for efficient service delivery to the good people of Lagos State.”
Dedicating the award to residents, Sanwo-Olu reiterated his administration’s commitment to achieving the Greater Lagos Vision in line with the THEMES agenda.
He also commended Vanguard Media Limited, the organisers of the award, and Lagos residents for believing in the current administration, while also pledging that the government would not let them down.
The governor said: “I want to dedicate the award to every Lagosian out there for believing in our administration’s vision of a Greater Lagos. We will not relent in our efforts to achieve this and other set goals along with our THEMES agenda.
“My special thanks go to the Vanguard Newspapers Group for the honour. Again, I thank Lagosians for standing by our government through the many phases since the beginning of the administration. Be assured that our best is yet to come.”
Meanwhile, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, yesterday, congratulated Governor Sanwo-Olu for emerging as the Vanguard Newspaper’s Personality of the Year 2019/2020.
Gbajabiamila said he was not surprised at Sanwo-Olu’s choice by the Vanguard Newspaper as the governor’s superlative performance in office speaks for itself.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker said Sanwo-Olu would go down as one of the most dedicated and committed leaders Lagos State has ever produced.
The Speaker said he believed the award of Personality of the Year would spur the Lagos State governor to do more for Lagosians.
