    This Gov is just hiding under buhari with his non performing self! What difference is this man making so far in lagos? Afterall he took over from an APC run state that was performing by the way? Lagos seems to be either stagnant or even retrogressive under his tenure so far…!

    Good to see that women are being given their well deserved positions in Lagos State. I believe many of the women appointed have the right pedigree. Let us give them the support they need to excel as we monitor their performance.
