Breaking: Ex-Gov Ambode Avoids Sanwo-Olu’s Inauguration
The outgoing Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has congratulated his successor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, saying the new governor deserves to enjoy his historic day without him sharing the glory with him.
In a veiled reference to why he will not be attending the formal inauguration of Sanwo-Olu and his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, today, Ambode said Sanwo-Olu should be allowed to be the star of his inauguration.
This was part of a press release by Ambode’s Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Mr. Habib Aruba this morning.
The out-going governor in the release said:
“I have already formally handed over reins of power in the State to the new Governor in a most cordial and convivial ceremony at the State House yesterday.
“The formal inauguration should have Mr. Sanwo-Olu as the star of the day. I don’t think that glory should be shared with him by my presence,” Ambode said.
Ambode said he has had a quality private moment with his successor.
He said he is confident that with the prayers, cooperation and collective support of all Lagosians, the new government will succeed in the excellent tradition of progressive governance which Lagos State is known for.
