foundation for infrastructural development of the State.
The group disclosed that the present administration in the State were
more of cosmetics than real governance, tagging the celebration as just a mere political jamboree which was unnecessary, laughable, unacceptable and tantamount to wasting of meager resources of the State.
This was contained in a signed statement by the SLG’s Convener, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman and copies were made available to newsmen on Thursday, insisted that Governor Sanwo-Olu has nothing to celebrate than political propaganda.

backwardness since assumption of office by Mr. Sanwo-Olu on May

people of the State and as well wallowing in abject poverty.

Governor of the State and a clear headed administrator per excellence, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode is far better than Mr. Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu in term of providing good governance to the people of the State. By 100 days of Ambode in office in 2015,he had made landmark
achievements in the nooks and crannies of the State. Since Sanwo-Olu
