Temidayo Akinsuyi -Lagos — More commendations keep coming the way of Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode as the Presidency on Thursday described his performance since assuming office as fantastic.
Speaking in a chat with newsmen, Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babefemi Ojudu said Lagos State will always get better under Ambode’s visionary leadership.
Ojudu, who said he personally praised Governor Ambode when they met at the last National Economic Council meeting in Abuja said the progress being witnessed in Lagos is as a result of a solid foundation laid by Governor’s Ambode’s predecessors.
“ On Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s performance in Lagos I have just a word for it : Fantastic. I told him so when I met him at the last National Economic Council meeting in Abuja. He is doing a great job. Lagos will always get better . That’s the benefit of a solid foundation”.
It will be recalled that a former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George also hailed Ambode on his efforts in the areas of infrastructural developments urging the governor to do more in order to etch his name in gold upon the completion of his assignments in office.
George, who is the Atona Oodua of Yorubaland, said though he has never met Governor Ambode and they belong to different political parties, the governor deserves commendation for what he has done so far in the areas of infrastructural developments in Epe local government and other parts of the state and also in the area of traffic decongestion in the state.
While admitting that governing a cosmopolitan city like Lagos is a huge task, George, who hails from Lagos Island Local government in the state also appealed to the governor to help in developing his local government and other areas of the state.
According to him “I have never met this young man but I must say that I am impressed with his performance so far especially in the area of infrastructural developments. I don’t know everywhere in Lagos because I hardly go round but I must sincerely commend him on what he is doing in Epe Local Government. I am very proud of what he is doing there. I passed through Epe recently and I thought I was in a different state”.
