Former Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Professor Adigun Agbaje, says political leaders in Lagos must ensure the democratic space in the state does not get clogged in order to avoid a regression into oligarchy.
The Former Deputy Vice Chancellor said this during a lecture as part of programmes lined up for the inauguration of the second term in office of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat.
Professor Agbaje notes that Governor Sanwo-Olu has carefully crafted a knowledge-based, inclusive pathway to renewal and consolidation in line with precedence.
He says Lagos has been blessed, by a happy coincidence with technocrats and astute politicians in governance over the decades.
The Professor notes that Lagos must be pointed more in the direction of greater and wider inclusion.
