Veteran journalist and publisher Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu has commended Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode saying that he has succeeded in proving that governance in Nigeria is not rocket science.
Momodu, who led members of his Media Group on a courtesy visit to Governor Ambode at the Lagos House in Ikeja, said that the visible achievements in the State in the last two years was a testament to the fact that the Governor has kept his eyes on the job.
Momodu said, “I wrote an article not too long ago, you have made us proud, you have shown us that governance is not rocket science, you make it so simple and people wonder how you do it. But I think the secret is that you are hands on, you go out to see for yourself so nobody is going to come and embellish anything. Please continue doing what you are doing sir”.
The hallmark of greatness is not just about your achievement, it’s about how many people you are able to touch and your leadership is touching a lot of people and that is why ‘Ovation’ decided that we would do our little bit to enhance and amplify what you are doing and promote it to a global audience
“The world must see what is happening in Lagos. When we were coming, I was telling my colleagues that you can lay a good foundation, but a foundation cannot guarantee a good building. You (Governor) met a good foundation, but what you have done now is to produce a far better building, that is what we expected,” he said.
