Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has felicitated with his predecessor, Akinwunmi Ambode on his 60th birthday.
Sanwo-Olu said Ambode dedicated his life to service of Lagos State as a civil servant and Governor.
Recall that Ambode did one term as a governor of Lagos State before falling out with his then political godfather, President Bola Tinubu.
Ambode’s fallout with Tinubu and some political stakeholders in Lagos led to the emergence of Sanwo-Olu in 2019.
However, Sanwo-Olu said Ambode made positive and significant impacts in some sectors during his tenure as Lagos State governor.
Tweeting, the governor said his predecessor worked for the continuous growth and development of Lagos State.
According to Sanwo-Olu: “On behalf of my dear wife, Ibijoke, the government and good people of Lagos State, I join family, friends and political associates of my predecessor, former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to congratulate him on his 60th birthday.
“Mr Akinwunmi Ambode dedicated his young and adult life to the service of Lagos State, first as a civil servant and later as the 14th Governor of our dear State.
“As Council Treasurer, Auditor General for Local Government, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance and Accountant-General of Lagos State, he displayed a high level of integrity, dedication and professionalism to service in the public sector.
“He recorded same achievements as Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance and as the State’s Accountant General.
“He also made positive and significant impacts in some sectors during his tenure as Lagos State Governor, working for the continuous growth and development of our State.
“I wish His Excellency, former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode a happy birthday and pray that he witnesses many more fruitful years in good health. Amen.”Follow us on social media
