Gov Sanwo-Olu doesn’t want to be addressed as ‘His Excellency’

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has expressed his reservation for being addressed as ‘His Excellency’.

The governor says the title ‘His Excellency’ gets on his nerves and he doesn’t want to be addressed as such going forward.

I don’t want title in front of my name. I am actually going to come up with an executive order…this excellency thing, I think it is when you have finished and if you earn it, then you should be called excellency,” Sanwo-Olu said on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at the King’s Court Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos.

Continuing, Sanwo-Olu said, “If you haven’t earned it; if you haven’t delivered, there is nothing excellent in the excellency.

“You are just Mr. Governor for crying out loud and it is only when you have finished the kingdom assignment, when you have finished God’s work in the chosen place that you have been called to do that people can say in truth that you are a good representation and you deserve to be called excellency,” Sanwo-Olu said.

This is coming after Sanwo-Olu had spent over 120 days in office as the executive Governor of Lagos State.

According to a report by Pulse, Sanwo-Olu says the title ‘His Excellency’ should be reserved for leaders who have excelled in their tasks and finished the job they were elected to do.
