Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday, rescued a man who was on the verge of committing suicide on Third Mainland Bridge owing to the fact that he is indebted to the tune of N500, 000.
The governor made this known to journalists after he visited the Lagos Island maternity Hospital, Broad Street and some other hospitals in various parts of the state, to celebrate the Eid-el Kabir with in-patients and health practitioners.
Sanwo-Olu said “just this morning (Friday), we rescued somebody who was planning to jump at the Third Mainland bridge all because he said he has a debt of N500, 000. We had to rescue him and we paid the debt. Those little details are what make the difference.”
Speaking further he said “You look at big things but you need certainly create time for little things as well. That is the difference. You know you are going to build bridge and its nice, but you have somebody who is just somewhere who needs a help.”
