The victory of Mr Babajide Sanwoolu of the All Progressives Congress {“APC”) at the just concluded 2019 Gubernatorial elections in Lagos, has generated heated discussions in the state on policy direction and priority sectors that should  be  addressed.

Proshare WebTV in its coverage of the 2019 Guber polls engaged business leaders in the state on their expectations from the Governor-elect.

Mr Kunbi Oguneye CEO, Alpha Fortress who voted at the Ipewu/Mekunwen Ireti Primary School Polling Unit, Ikoyi  emphasised infrastructure which he saw as critical to a state with a population of over 20 million people.

He advised Sanwoolu to invest in human capital development, which would cover healthcare and education.

For him the healthcare service in Lagos, should be one that will provides opportunity for improved infant mortality.

“People should have access to first and secondary healthcare services in times of emergency and first aid attention in the event of minor injuries” Oguneye said.

The Alpha Fortress CEO tasked the new Governor to focus on providing basic and functional education in Lagos, especially in the areas of technical and vocational  development.

In sum, Oguneye emphasised infrastructure, health care and education as primary priorities the new administration should address.

On his part Mr Rotimi Oyekan, CEO of Phoenix Global Capital said, “I don’t think it is possible to solve all the problems in four years, but work should start in earnest on managing the chaotic urban slums that have spread in the state”

Oyekan called on the  Sanwoolu administration to concentrate on providing infrastructure to inner city parts of the state, thereby encouraging sustainable economic activities outside central city locations within the state.

Mr Tayo Oviosu Founder, Paga said, the big issues that the Sanwoolu administration must address  including providing jobs, expanding the economy, and creating an enabling environment for businesses, is the multiplicity of taxes in various parts of Lagos and harassment by local officials on dubious “small” taxes.

Oviosu also made a case for improved healthcare service  for Lagosians and reduced traffic  congestion within the metropolis, which  has had a major impact on productivity and quality off life within the state.

The Paga Founder called for qualitative education, which he believed was critical to human capital development.

Mr Onome Ogagame CEO, OG Stream Limited , said the Sanwoolu administration must be  accountable to the citizens of the state.

He insisted that the Lagos economy needs to grow and the government needs to be transparent in administering the economy.

Ogagame called on the Governor-elect to lead an inclusive government that does not discriminate against ethnic group or religion.

Mr Dan Ngerem former President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria and CEO, Henstem Trust Group speaking on his expectation of the Governor-Elect, emphasized the need for strategic and connected infrastructure in the state.

"The government  should provide infrastructure first and then people can move in and build property. Lagos is like four African countries put together, and  is a powerful City that should take a cue from New York or London" Ngerem said.
