Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, has congratulated his predecessor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.

Ambode was governor of Lagos from 2015 to 2019.

In a statement on Wednesday, Sanwo-Olu commended Ambode for his professionalism and dedication to service in the public sector.

The Lagos governor said Ambode made positive impacts in some sectors during his administration.


“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,” Sanwo-Olu said.

“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 the 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.”

Since the return of democracy in 1999, Ambode is the first governor of Lagos to serve just one term.

In 2018, Ambode spoke against the governorship ambition of Sanwo-Olu ahead of the primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos.

Ambode lost the primary election after reportedly falling out with godfather of Lagos politics and current Nigeria President Bola Tinubu.
