The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday renamed the popular Onikan Stadium after Brigadier Mobolaji Johnson, the first military administrator of Lagos.
The governor, who made the declaration while paying tribute to the late Johnson at the newly reconstructed Onikan Stadium, noted that the stadium would now be known as Mobolaji Olufunso Johnson Stadium in honour of the late military brass.
Sanwo-Olu, while describing the governor, said his accomplishment as the former governor was a great one, adding that he ruled the state with a compassionate mind.
“He was always willing to offer the right counsel. He was a regular feature of most of the ground-breaking events in Lagos State. His indelible reward for service remained intact and without blame. The projects he executed are still visible today,” he said.
Before now, the former Governor of Lagos State and National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, had extolled the virtues of Johnson, describing him as a man of integrity.
