Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu

The governorship candidate of Labour Party (LP) in 2023, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, has said that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has questions to answer over his recent trip to Grenada.

Rhodes-Vivour said this while reacting to a Premium Times report on the matter.

The online newspaper had reported that Sanwo-Olu abandoned work for a fun trip to Grenada for days but has been making frantic efforts to misinform and mislead citizens and residents to believe he travelled to the Island for ‘state business’.

According to the newspaper, the Lagos governor was not in Grenada for official duties but travelled there specifically to attend a series of lavish parties organised by Abuja-based businesswoman and socialite, Aisha Achimugu, who was celebrating her 50th birthday.

Echoing the newspaper, Rhodes-Vivour asked, “If the travel was official, were there correspondences between the governments of Grenada and Lagos State with detailed plans and purposes of meetings to be held in the country, and which culminated in the governor’s visit to that country?

“Was the trip on Mr Sanwo-Olu’s official itinerary as governor? Why was the trip not announced beforehand or documented in Lagos State’s records?

“Since the governor claims his visit to the Island was official, who are the officials of the Lagos government who accompanied him on the trip? Which media organisations or journalists were on his delegation?

“Who paid for Mr Sanwo-Olu’s flights, lodging and other expenses in Grenada? The governor will do well to furnish Nigerians with documentary evidence(s).

“How come the Lagos State helmsman (who governs a state of more than 13.5 million people) needed a week in Grenada, a country of about 125,000 (one hundred and twenty-five thousand) people, to meet with the Island’s prime minister even when he travelled there by private jet?

“In what specific ways will the trip benefit Lagos State?”
