Lagos, today, it begins.

In a powerful show of support, our party leaders and members came out to join me in kicking off the journey to our second term which I have called a #GreaterLagosRising .

I am humbled but energized for the vision that was written and is now in motion.

Dr. Obafemi Hamzat and I hold forth a report card of service to the people with proof that is beyond mere words, cutting across every sector in our #THEMES agenda as we promised to build #ForAGreaterLagos in our first term.

Now we say a Greater Lagos is Rising.

In our first term, we have shown commitment to rapid infrastructural development, the key to the next level of Lagos with completed strategic projects; bridges, roads, ports and many more, rebuilding Lagos and renewing the hope of our residents.

We upgraded 2 tertiary institutions to degree-awarding schools, rewarded and encouraged excellence thereby improving human capital.

We have trained 18,000 teachers under the Eko Excel Initiative.

#GreaterLagosRising means more.

We have taken Lagos to the threshold of history as the first sub-national to deliver on a mass rail system.

The Blue Line is being test run ahead of commissioning and operations in the coming weeks with The Red Line scheduled for Q1 of 2023.

#GreaterLagosRising means more.

We have completed and inaugurated 16 housing schemes within this first term.

We have commissioned over 62 fire-fighting vehicles understanding our environment and equipped our firefighters with education and world class gear.

#GreaterLagosRising means more.

With Imota Rice Mill and the record completion of the Lekki Deep Sea Port, we have provided incontrovertible proof that a greater Lagos is indeed rising.

With exemplary handling of #COVID19 and the many other health emergencies of our current world and the launch of a health insurance scheme that is non-discriminatory and truly citizen focused, we are positioned to deliver the next best steps.

#GreaterLagosRising means more.

Our campaign will be reinforcing the energy, remarkable audacity & unbroken resilience of our people.

Rising is a proof of growth.

In our first term under our #ForAGreaterLagos mantra, we have transformed the state, now it is time for a #GreaterLagosRising

Rise with us.
