A pro-Sanwo-Olu Campaign organization, Sanwo-Olu for Governor Again (SAFOGA), has praised Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State for his commitment on the Fourth Mainland Bridge (4MB), describing the commitment as another way of walking his talk.
Renowned activist and Convener of the organization, Comrade Razaq Olokoba in a statement in Lagos Saturday said, the preparation to commence work on the long awaited project is heart-warming especially when it came from an administrator who is not given for vain talk.
According to the activist, any promise made by Sanwo-Olu is like a legal tender that could be taken to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), to cash, adding that, “we believe that the project is as good as completed since it came from the horse’s himself particularly when the proverbial horse in question is not a disappointing one.
Olokoba also commended all the governor’s aides who are rallying round him to ensure that the project sees the light of the day mentioning specifically, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Works, Mrs Aramide Adeoye among others for her solid support for Sanwo-Olu on the unique project.
The group, having taken critical look at the benefits that would accrue to the state, the country and the world at large said the importance of the project can never be over emphasised economically, socially, medically and security wise enthusing that, the stride towards attaining a full Mega City Status is getting toward final perfection.
While urging the governor not to look back on the project, the campaign organization assured him of the full support of all its members, saying grassroots campaign to mobilise support for his second term in office has reached almost the peak and assurance of 100 per cent success is double sure.
Against this background, the SAFOGA boss expressed the need for all hands to be on deck in supporting and assisting the governor to coast home victorious during the governorship election coming up March 2023.
Recall the Special Adviser to Governor Sanwo-Olu, Mrs Aramide Adeoye was she who announced the preparation for the bridge at a press briefing at Ikeja, Lagos where she announced the preferred contractor for the execution of the project.
The declared lucky one were Messrs CCECC-CRCCIG CONSORTIUM as the preferred bidder for the proposed Fourth Mainland Bridge project, which will run for about 37 kilometres and be completed within four years.
It would cost 2.5 billion American dollars, the officials disclosed.
