Akinwunmi Ambode, the outgoing Lagos State Governor, on Tuesday, officially handed over to the incoming governor, Sanwo-Olu, ahead of tomorrow’s inauguration.

Ambode, after the handover at the Government House in Alausa, Lagos, disclosed to the newsmen that it was a private formal handover.

“We are happy with what we have seen and excited with the thoughts and conversations we had and we look forward to the official ceremony tomorrow.

“After the inauguration, governance will start in earnest,’’ Sanwo-olu said.

Earlier, the Head of Civil Service of the state, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, said the governor handed over the state documents to Sanwo-Olu.

According to him, it will enable the incoming governor to study the activities of the state in the last four years and know how to proceed in governing.

Sanwo-Olu will, on Wednesday, take the oath of office as the 15th governor of Lagos State.

The crisis before this paved way for the emergence of Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the new bride and he subsequently became the anointed son of the national leader of the ruling party.
