Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola: Is Lagos State Still Working?

 

You were a reference point, some even compare you with Cassius Longinus- philosopher and rhetorician, described as a "a living library and a walking museum".

 

You define style, you were a syllabus other states study, your simplicity, style of governance, traffic management, road management, environment, water transportation, housing, metro rail line project, education, health, public service were areas other states in Nigeria tried copying.

 

With your Better Re-assuring Future to Before Retiring Finally in 2015, is Lagos State still working? Your 1st term was an endless footprints on the sands of Lagos State history You break barriers, you were honored locally and internationally, as the world stand aside to let BRF passes , because you knows where you were going.

 

In your second term, it seems Lagos all these giant strides has virtually left to be wallowed. Through political bickering and manoeuvrings, your erstwhile deputy governor was replaced, and possibly you could not worked with the present one.

 

BRF, Lagosians are still dumfounded! Eko tin baje o! [Lagos is no longer working}. The Atlantic City, Lekki Free Trade Zone, are indeed an endless footprints of yours on the sand of Lagos State. The street sign posts in some areas has been abandoned. Most people were actually swayed to ACN because of your attributes and accomplishments.

 

Your second term is indeed not as vibrant as the first term, the political bickering and manoeuvrings that is already playing itself out in Lagos State to some, may be the reason why you have soft pedaled on consolidating on your unrivaled accomplishments. You are not serving any semi-god or godfather, but your service is to Lagosians by leaving an endurable, unrivaled, undeniable endless footprints of BRF on the sand of Lagos State now Before Retiring Finally!

 

You surrounded yourself with intellectuals, you established yourself in the minds of Lagosians as a master of initiatives, your voice is strong and harmonious, your manly understanding is strengthened and adorned with study.

 

And for those who have tied down your advancement, remind them; it was just as certain Indian wise man had observed: "O King Alexander, each man possess just so much of the earth as this one which we stand; and you being a man like other man, save that you are full of activity and relentless are roaming over, all the earth far from your home, troubling yourself, and troubling others. But not so long hence you will die, and will posses just so much of the earth as suffices for your burial."

 

BRF, Before Finally Retiring, Is Lagos State still working?  Eko tin baje o!

My hopes for 2015: BRF/Tambuwal Ticket!
