Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, says the economy of the state cannot be managed by someone who lacks the requisite experience in governance and leadership.
On March 18, Sanwo-Olu will contest with Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party (LP), and Abdul-Azeez Adediran of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the governorship position.
Speaking in an interview with Nigeria Info FM on Wednesday, Sanwo-Olu said the economy of the state is crucial to the nation.
The governor said he is the most qualified of all the candidates, adding that he has both private and public experience to move the state forward.
