What Ambode has done differently – Bode George

Chief Bode George
Ex-deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George has expressed satisfaction at the performance of the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode in the areas of infrastructural developments, urging the governor to do more in order to etch his name in gold upon the completion of his assignments in office.

George, who said though, he had never met Governor Ambode and that they belonged to different political parties, added that the governor deserved commendation for what he had done so far in the areas of infrastructural developments in Epe local government and other parts of the state and also in the area of traffic decongestion in the state.

While admitting that governing a cosmopolitan city like Lagos was a huge task, George, who hailed from Lagos Island Local government in the state also appealed to the governor to help in developing his local government and other areas of the state.

“I have never met this young man but I must say that I am impressed with his performance so far especially in the area of infrastructural developments. I don’t know everywhere in Lagos because I hardly go round but I must sincerely commend him on what he is doing in Epe Local Government. I am very proud of what he is doing there. I passed through Epe recently and I thought I was in a different state.

“I want to appeal to him that when he is done with Epe, he should head back to my local government, which is Lagos Island so that when he leaves office, not will Epe people remember him for his performance, but the entire Lagos will remember him and say ‘ yes, there was one Governor that passed through here and his name is Akinwunmi Ambode’.

“I also must commend him in the area of traffic management, especially in the area of traffic decongestion in the state”.

“He is a Yorubaman and he is doing his best but I know that we as opposition will do better when we get there. My advice to him is that he should ensure that the standards of living of Lagosians are improved especially in the areas of education and healthcare. I must commend him because it is not easy governing a state like Lagos. Lagos is like the New York of the United States” he said.

    Age is beginning to have a positive effect on Chief Bode George afterall, otherwise it is strange that this same man whose antecedents we know can see anything good in anybody other than those in his party

    This is civilized politics just played by Chief Bode George. I hope others will copy this statesman and tell the truth as seen. I have not met the young Lagos state governor before but the honest attestation to his performance by an individual from the opposing party speaks volume. Definitely Nigeria will surely get to that level and get it right this time around. Who knows maybe God is preparing Chief George for the leadership of Yoruba race we badly need. Please do not get me wrong, I have never met Chief Bode George before and am not soliciting for him. I only appreciate the fine and matured politics he just played as practised in Canada where I live.

      I agree with you to an extent, but to think of Chief Bode George as a possible Yoruba leader is a No No. That he said something good today does not change who he has ever been and will continue to be
