The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has made it known that visionary and innovative leaders are what Nigeria needs to take it to the promised land.
Sanwo-Olu stated this while participating as a guest speaker at the Nehemiah Leadership Institute’s 60th Independence Day Symposium where he harped on the relevance of transformational leadership.
Sanwo-Olu was quoted as saying, “a transformational leader must be visionary and inspire innovative ideas to advance development.
“This is what we aspire to in Lagos State. The story of Nehemiah is instructive, and his leadership style captures our approach to governance in Lagos State. We have a burden to ease the sufferings of our people, and we are ready to do the work needed to accomplish this.
“Our motivation remains the people and their wellbeing. We recognize that when we take the lead, our people will toe the path of participatory governance, which will engender the collaborative transformation of Lagos State”.
