Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has stated that only government officials who perform well deserve to be called “Your Excellency”.
Sanwo-Olu made this known on Sunday October 27 while addressing members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Kings Court parish in Lagos
“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.
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 s 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’ he said.
