Africa-Press – Nigeria. President Bola Tinubu has reunited three of his successors as governor of Lagos State.
Lagos State has produced Babatunde Fashola, Akinwunmi Ambode, and Babajide Sanwo-Olu as governors after Tinubu.
Tinubu ruled Lagos State as governor from 1999 to 2007.
In 2007, he handed over to the immediate past Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who superintended over the state for another eight years.
At the expiration of his second tenure, Fashola handed over the baton of the state to Ambode.
A clash between Tinubu and Ambode saw him losing the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship primaries in the state in 2018.
During the primary election, Ambode lashed out at Tinubu and his successor, Sanwo-Olu.
The reconciliation process started when the incumbent governor visited the former during his 60th birthday recently.
Sanwo-Olu said Ambode dedicated his time to the service of Lagos State as a governor and civil servant.
In furtherance of the reconciliation process, Tinubu, Fashola, and Ambode were together yesterday at the welcome back party organized by the state governor in honour of the president.
Commenting on the meeting, Sanwo-Olu’s media aide, Gboyega Akosile tweeted: “Four Generations! Three former governors, the incumbent governor and a president- all from Lagos. God bless Lagos State. @officialABAT
