The governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is of the opinion that only government officials who have excelled in their service to people should be addressed as ”Your Excellency”
The governor said this while addressing members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Kings Court parish in Lagos, on Sunday, October 27th.
Speaking at the church, the governor who came into office five months ago, said
“I don’t want a 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 its 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’ he said
