UNILAG alumni laud Ambode's achievements

UNILAG alumni laud Ambode's achievements

The Lagos State chapter of the University of La­gos (UNILAG) alum­ni association has lauded the numerous achievements of the state government under the leadership of Governor Akinwumi Ambode.
In a statement made avail­able to newsmen, the Chair­man, Dr Lukumon Adeoti, an academic staff of the uni­versity and an associate pro­fessor in the Department of Geosciences, pointed out how the various develop­mental projects of the gov­ernor have benefitted resi­dents of the state.
Adeoti said the associa­tion and UNILAG are proud to have produced the num­ber one citizen of the state, adding that the visionary leadership the governor has demonstrated in the areas of education, agriculture, wealth and job creation, among others, has once again proved that the university is a first choice and the nation’s pride.
Parts of the statement read: “The governor is a true ‘Akokite’ and has demon­strated that the knowledge he gained from his alma ma­ter benefits and guides him as he is taking Lagos State to the promised land of develop­ment. It is instructive to note that the massive infrastruc­tural development of Am­bode, particularly his Light up Lagos project, reconstruc­tion of new and dilapidated roads has eased traffic and movement of people.”
He however appealed to the governor to participate in the chapter’s programme stating that “charity begins at home”, and adding that the state chapter of UNILAG alumni shares the governor’s vision in the areas of educa­tion and youth development which has prompted the as­sociation to establish a schol­arship trust fund for indigent students.
