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.
