The erstwhile classmates held a Congratulatory Dinner Reception , in Sanwo – Olu ’ s honour at Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi.
At the dinner , they presented to him a policy document designed by them , which contained their ideas and suggestions on some of what Sanwo – Olu could do in office to have a successful tenure .

One of the questions was what he would do about the trailers causing the gridlock in Apapa .

Taking on the issue , Sanwo – Olu promised that within the first 60 days in office , he would rid Apapa of the trailers .
He said , “ The Apapa trailer issue ; it ’ s a campaign issue ; it ’ s very serious ; I’ m going to take it very seriously .
“ I believe that it is something that we are going to solve in the first 60 days of our government . Whatever is going to be required of us , we will take them out .
“ There is a lot of politics being played around there . But no , it cannot be the way we ’ ll continue to live . We cannot continue to give excuses . ”

The governor – elect , however , said as a long – term solution , his administration would develop the Badagry Port , to diffuse the pressure on the Apapa Port .
