Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor-elect, on Friday, briefed the media on the kind of people that will form his cabinet.

The incoming governor, in his address, also reiterated his commitment to hit the ground running, promising to run an inclusive government.

“There are so many intelligent people in Lagos. It’s just for us to identify them.

“Some could work full time, some part time, others could be technocrats or politicians but the bottom line is for us to identify square pegs in square holes and round pegs into round holes. That’s number one.

“Number two, those who would work with Dr Hamzat and I must share our vision. They have to be on the same page with us from day one.

“The moment a politician or technocrat is appointed, he or she should see himself as a commissioner or staff adviser of Lagos, not for a sect or an area or jurisdiction.

“These are the basic things, we will not compromise.

“Femi and I have been on this journey for the past eight or nine months. So, immediately we come on board, we will organise a crash course for them (cabinet members) to see where we are going.

“The moment we all see a common vision, it will be easier for us to drive a common agenda.

“But I can say Lagosians will be happy with us when we finally bring out those names,” Sanwo-Olu stated.
