Daily Trust - - EKO TRUST - From Mo­hammed Shosanya,La­gos

The leader of Ebute Iga and Ma­jidun com­mu­nity of La­gos, Chief Ahmed Oje­biyi, has fe­lic­i­tated with the Oba of La­gos,Aki­olu Ril­wanu, on the oc­ca­sion of the cel­e­bra­tion of cre­ation of La­gos.

Speak­ing at a spe­cial prayer and thanks­giv­ing event or­ga­nized by the peo­ple of Ebute Iga and Ma­jidun, Oje­biyi, who is also the As­apon of La­gos, thanked God for the life of the monarch.

“It is not an ac­ci­dent that Oba Aki­olu is the reign­ing Oba of La­gos at the same time that La­gos State has clocked 50 years since cre­ation in 1976. This is why we must thank God for giv­ing us vi­sion­ary and pur­pose­ful lead­ers like Oba Aki­olu,” he said.

Chief Oje­biyi stated that since the in­stal­la­tion and corona­tion of Oba Aki­olu, La­gos has wit­nessed tremen­dous de­vel­op­ment and ad­vance­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the state has been blessed with vi­sion­ary and pro­gres­sive lead­ers like Asi­waju Bola Ahmed Tin­ubu, Mr.Ba­batunde Raji Fashola and the in­cum­bent gov­er­nor, Ak­in­wunmi Am­bode.

‘’The com­bi­na­tion of three self­less vi­sion­ary lead­ers has taken La­gos to where we are to­day. At 50, La­gos State is unar­guably the best state in Nige­ria. This is no boast. Imag­ine that more than 70 per­cent of the states we have in Nige­ria can­not even pay their work­ers’ salaries. Many of them have vir­tu­ally be­come failed states. But this is not the case with La­gos,’’ he said.
