A good name or silver and gold

I was in a bus some minutes ago and as the bus approached the mazamaza brigde, a discussion started between two women.
The first woman insisted that the road expansion going on is just a flash in the pan and that it will soon be abandoned. The second woman disagreed saying that will happen only if Gov. Fashola refuses to go for a second term term as he had earlier said.
The other woman agreed and added that if he eventually refuses to run, then his successor must have to be someone who will be ready to serve the people sincerely rather than his pocket saying that Gov. Fashola has won peoples' heart with his performance so far. She was however quick to add that she does not beleive that a credible election will ever take place that it is whoever those who are in power want that'll be. The other woman agreed and the conversation ended.
In other words, both women beleived in the ability of the state government to perform but had no belief in the electoral system of the country.
Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) has made a name for himself in a short while, what have you done to leave a long lasting possible impression?
