Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has disclosed that he never saw himself as a politician until 2018 even though he held public offices for over a decade.
The Lagos State Governor made the disclosure on Thursday December 12, at a lecture he delivered at the 3rd Alumni Lecture of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Faculty of Engineering Alumni Association which was held at the University campus.
He said; “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”.
