    Unlike Fashola’s administration that had at least 2 or 3 Igbo commissioners.

    Our dear Gov, a.k.a Mr Quilox, a.k.a picture-taking lover, our Lagos is in disarray and you are just appointing your commissioners!!!!! What manner of crap is this?? Please take a cue from EL-RUFAI to see what leadership really means.

    @KK, will you keep quiet?????

    What does ‘leadership’ means? Telling pple to climb mountains and die? Making one-sided appointments and using media to propagate ‘good leadership’ including telling lies???? You must be dodgy to think that way! Anyways, for your info, Ambode is cleaning the mess created by BRF and focusing on the rural areas neglected by BRF. I am a PDP man but I traveled to Ipaja last weekend and later Badagry, I was happy with what saw – just in 3 months. Meanwhile, all new Govnors are just appointing executives, with our kinda politics – you need to be careful who you bring on board.

    @me, are there Yoruba commissioners in Imo State? Alawada…

      With much respect to BRF, how much was he able to achieve in the rural parts of lagos? If you are a well traveled lagosian, you will understand what OLOYE is saying.
