Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu (SAN), has felicitated with the former Governor of the State and current Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), on the occasion of his 58th birthday.

Governor Sanwo-Olu in a statement issued on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, described Fashola as a seasoned administrator, legal icon and technocrat who has used his skills and positions in different capacities for the growth of Lagos State and Nigeria.

He said Fashola raised the bar in corporate governance and administration while serving as Governor of Lagos State, with great records of laudable achievements during his eight years tenure of office.

Sanwo-Olu wished the former Lagos State helmsman more years of joy and good health for a continued service to the State, Nigeria and humanity as a whole.

“On behalf of my adorable wife Ibijoke, the good people of Lagos State as well as the All Progressives Congress (APC), I heartily congratulate my brother and predecessor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) on the occasion of his 58th birthday.

“As a true ambassador of our dear State, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) set a high standard in the administration of Lagos State with great achievements and laudable projects, which are visible in different parts of the State.

“Mr. Fashola has sacrificed the greater part of his life in service of Lagos State and Nigeria. He served passionately as Chief of Staff to former Governor Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his track records earned him the governorship seat in 2007 to continue on the progressive path set by his predecessor for eight years before moving to the federal level in 2015 to serve as Minister of Power, Works and Housing.

“His contributions to the success of the All Progressives Congress-led government at state and federal levels are commendable. He is Lagos State pride in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari,” the governor stated.

The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. (Dr) Mudashiru Obasa, on Sunday, commiserated with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state over the loss of its officials in different circumstances.

Recall that the party recently lost Dr. Michael Adegbola Dominic, its chairman.

PDP also lost its secretary in Lagos, Prince Muiz Shodipe Dosunmu. Other members and officials who also died include Alhaji Monsuru Ajagbe, its Lagos West vice chairman, Yeye Shola Oladehinbo, its women leader in the state.

The party also lost its LGA Chairmen for Badagry, Ajeromi/Ifelodun, Lagos Mainland and Apapa.

Speaker Obasa urged the party to remain strong even though it must have been a painful and solemn period for its members.

While praying for a repose of the souls of the departed, Obasa urged the party at the various levels to take solace in the fact that the departed officials had played their roles for the growth and progress of democracy in the state and the nation.

“As religious people, we understand the place of the Divine God in everything that we do. We believe that God gives and takes. We only pray for His mercies at all times.

“As politicians, we also understand the roles we all play for the progress of our state or the nation. Irrespective of our political differences, we are, first, human beings with blood and water inside us.

“As human beings, the least expected of us is to constantly show compassion, have human feelings and show love to one another.

“It is on these notes that I commiserate with the PDP and its officials both at the national and Lagos State levels over the demise of their colleagues in the state,” Obasa said in a statement from his media office.

The Speaker further urged the party not to abandon all those left behind by the departed as this is the time to show them love.
