Lagos State Governor , Babajide Sanwo has humbly asked residents of the state to stop addressing him as the ‘the excellency.’
Speaking via a statement he personally signed to the public, he explained that only God is worthy of being addressed as ‘the excellency.
However, he said he would prefer to be addressed as ‘Mr. Governor’ instead.
“In the last five months that I have been privileged to exercise the mandate freely given to me by the great and hardworking people of Lagos State, it has come to my consciousness to review certain features of citizen-government relations which impede the genuine expression of the democratic spirit of our society and the meaningful exercise of the sovereignty of our people.
