Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu yesterday received the royal endorsement of the Oniru of Iruland, Oba Gbolahan Lawal, who urged Lagosians to re-elect him for continued development of the state.

Oba Lawal spoke at the opening of Chanel Point Apartments on Victoria Island.

He said the state needed a governor who could think outside the box and come up with policies that would fast track development despite the challenges of a sprawling smart city like Lagos.

The monarch said he was happy that the governor’s vision for housing was in tandem with his vision to make Lagos compact and smart for residents.

The Chanel Point Apartment is a joint venture between the Lagos State Development and Property Corporation (LSDPC) and Brook Assets and Resources Limited. It is a twin block comprising 38 apartments. The project was conceived when Governor Sanwo-Olu was the managing director of the LSDPC.
