Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had renamed the popular Onikan Stadium after the first Military Administrator of Lagos, Brigadier Mobolaji Olufunso Johnson.
Sanwo-Olu, who spoke at the Day of Tribute for the late Johnson at the newly reconstructed Onikan Stadium today, said the stadium would now be known as ‘Mobolaji Olufunso Johnson Stadium’ in honour of the deceased.
Sanwo-Olu listed the virtues of Johnson, describing him as a distinguished man and a great patriot and an accomplished administrator who re-engineered the modern Lagos.
The policy thrust of his administration was shaped by his faith in the creative capabilities and boundless energies of the people, especially the masses. Even in death, the story of the development of Lagos to a model megacity cannot be told without a mention of this unassuming and worthy leader.
