The governor gave the commendation while swearing in two new members of the LASIEC board – Prof. Gabriel Babawale and Dr Noah Jinadu – and some other appointees in Ikeja.

Ambode said the appointees were chosen based on their track record, integrity and credibility, urging them to also add value to corporate governance in the state.

“Your appointment is a call to public service and I am very confident that you will justify the trust the government has reposed in your ability and capacity to add value to the corporate governance, growth and development of the state.

“Let me also add that your appointment is an invitation and a privilege to be part of history as we lay a solid foundation for the future of Lagos; a Lagos that our children and their children will enjoy for many years to come,” he said.
