The Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed that he started seeing himself as a politician in 2018 despite public offices he held over a decade.
This was disclosed by the Lagos State Governor on Thursday, December 12 while delivering a speech at the 3rd Alumni Lecture of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Faculty of Engineering Alumni Association which was held at the University campus.
“I saw myself purely as a professional – a technocrat- in politics and public service.
“The opportunity to run as governor was a bigger responsibility than anything I had ever done, and, and unlike everything before, not a role to which I could be simply appointed. I can say that it was at that point that I became a politician”.
