Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State has won governor of the year at the 3rd City People Political Awards. The publisher, Seye Kehinde, spoke highly of the governor especially his leadership style in Lagos state and his many achievements within two years of his administration in Lagos state.
With a governance template that stands out as a model among Nigeria’s 36 states, governing Lagos State requires more than just being a political heavyweight as obtains in Nigeria’s political landscape. It is a task that comes with a proportionate mixture of intelligence, character and audacity to achieve super results that befit Lagos. Making the job exceptional, especially at this time, is the fact that the immediate past governor of the state, Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, achieved results that raised the bar of leadership for his successor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode. All these combined to make Ambode’s leadership of Africa’s most populous city of about 20 million people, one of the toughest jobs in Nigeria. With his boyish charm and ebullient agility, Ambode assumed office heralding a blend of conjecture and suspense across many quarters. From the onset, Ambode, who was born in 1963, was confident that his administration projected optimism and hope, but observers in so many bursts of impatience thought otherwise.
