Sanwo-Olu drops ‘His Excellency’ prefix for ‘Mr. Governor’

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu yesterday dropped the prefix ‘His Excellency.’ It came 11 days after he declared at an event that the title made him uncomfortable and promised to jettison it. The governor, in a statement, said that he should not be called His Excellency.

Sanwo-Olu at the King’s Court Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos, on Sunday, October 27, 2019, while addressing worshippers said: “I don’t want the 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 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 those people can say in truth that you are a good representation and you deserve to be called excellency,” Sanwo-Olu said.
