Gov. Sanwo-Olu makes first appointment, as Ambode admits mistakes

The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has appointed his former campaign director, Tayo Ayinde, as chief of staff.

The appointment came a few hours after the former governor Akinwunmi Ambode officially handed over to him.

Meanwhile, in Ambode’s farewell speech, the former governor, who failed to win reelection despite his hopes, admitted that there were things his administration could have done differently.

  • “A few of our policies might have been unpopular but these were decisions taken with the best interest of our State in mind. With the benefit of hindsight, maybe we could have done some things differently but our intention was always clear, for the good of Lagos.”
  • He was however grateful for the opportunity to serve the state. “As a little boy growing up in Lagos, all I wanted was to be an accountant. This State gave me that and so much more,” he said. “Our State is a land of opportunities, a home for everyone and a place where dreams come true.”
  • “The same courtesy and cooperation that you gave to my predecessors from the first elected Governor of the State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande to our national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) to my humble self, I urge you to extend same to the next administration of Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and ensure that he succeeds. It is in our best interest to do so.”
