Governor pledges more infrastructure for LASU

The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, yesterday said that no politician should contest for 2019 governorship election in Lagos because there is no vacancy for that office.

Speaking at the 21st convocation ceremony of Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, the monarch said that any politician who refused to obey his directive would waste his or her money.

Akiolu, who said that though it is God that crowns a leader, enjoined all politicians to align with Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and his deputy for 2019 governorship election.

Meanwhile, Ambode in his speech at the ceremony said that his administration was committed to making LASU one of the best in Nigeria. He said that by 2020, he expects the institution to be one of the best five in Nigeria and the preferred choice by 2023.

    This Oba is smoking some unrefined expired weed. We know come rain or sun, Ambode would win 2019 election (either legimate votes or through rigging)….

    • KolapoAhmed

      He will win through legimate vote because Lagosians are really appreciating how he is transforming Lagos

        So why is the Drunk Oba running scared? It’s politics and not dictatorship……. This Oba needs to know when to say things and what to say, or else keep mute. Let’s assume an Igbo candidate emerges? Would he personally shove him/her in the lagoon?

    This fool again?
    Is this not the same thug who says that Lagosians should drown all Ibos living in Lagos in the laggon should they vote against his choice during the last governorship election in the state?
