The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has paid a condolence visit to the family of Lateek Kayode Jakande, the first civilian Governor of the state, who died this month at the age of 91.
Governor Sanwo-Olu said that “Alhaji Jakande scored several firsts that even subsequent governors have not been able to match.
”I say here with all sense of humility that indeed, he had been a builder of our time, a man that laid the foundation of a Lagos that all of us are attempting and trying to develop and put layers on and his exist cannot be easily quantifiable.
“We can only take solace in the fact that he had lived a good life, he had been a very decent man, a very humble man and he had reflected what true humanity is all about.
”It is a source of inspiration to all of us, it is a clarion call for all of us that are in position of leadership now to think and reflect on how also would we be remembered after our time.
“So, we are here to commiserate again with the family, encourage them, to pray with them and to say to them that indeed at this trying time, we will be with them.”
