AMBODE ABSENT AT SANWO-OLU'S INAUGURATION CEREMONY


The immediate past governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has been noticeably absent at the ongoing inauguration ceremony of the new governor of Lagos, Mr. Babatunde Sanwo-Olu, which is taking place at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos.

The erstwhile Lagos governor we later found out, had early morning, rolled out a statement through Habib Aruna, his Chief Press Secretary, that he would not be at the formal ceremony today.

Ambode gave the reason for his intended absence as a desire not to struggle the shine of the day with the new governor. He said, "the new governor deserves to enjoy his historic day without having him share in the glory with him."

Ambode, went on to congratulate Sanwo-Olu, saying his successor should be allowed to be the star of his inauguration.

“I have already formally handed over reigns of power in the state to the new governor in a most cordial and convivial ceremony at the State House yesterday,” he added.
