The National Association of Online Security News Publishers (NAOSNP) has congratulated the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on winning the prestigious Vanguard Personality of the Year Award.
In a statement signed by the Association’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Eric Elezuo, NAOSNP described Sanwo-Olu as the best man for the award, citing his developmental efforts in Lagos, and more importantly his efforts at making Lagos a crime-free State.
The statement also revealed that the Association’s president, Mr Samson Oki, who was present at the event, is elated at Sanwo-Olu’s award, and highlighted the governor’s achievements, with special mention to the many assistance rendered to all security agents and law enforcement agents in the state. These include providing highly rated security equipment and also training for personnel.
“Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s trajectory in governance is beyond the ordinary, and it is no surprise that many organisations, including colleagues in governance, have found in him a worthy companion in administrative convenience and in the provision of requisite dividends of democracy,” the statement said.
Recall that the Governor, who has spent only two years in the seat of power, was announced the personality of the year at the well attended Vanguard event held at the Eko Hotel and Suites weekend.
Responding, Sanwo-Olu, who dedicated the award to the people of Lagos State, disclosed that the award meant a lot to him as it would constantly remind him and his team to work harder for Lagosians.
“I feel highly honoured to receive the Vanguard Personality 2019/2020 by the Vanguard Newspapers Group. The awards means a lot to me. This prestigious award will be a constant reminder to me and my team to perform better to out do ourselves in the current year for efficient service delivery to the good people of Lagos State.”
He further reiterated his administration’s commitment to achieve the Greater Lagos vision in line with the THEMES agenda. He also thanked organisers of the award as well as the citizens for believing in the current administration, pledging that the government would not let them down.
“I wish to dedicate the awards 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 goes 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 happen,” the governor said.
