Ambode on Lessons Learned in Office: “I am more of a politician than a technocrat”May 14, 2019
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos, on Monday visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
Punch reports that Ambode, the outgoing governor of the state, said it was a “Thank you visit” to the president.
Buhari had visited Lagos in April and commissioned some projects.
Responding to a question on the lessons he learned in office, Ambode said:
You see, every politician learns every day. The fact remains that I came in as a technocrat, so I used to call myself a techno-politician. But I think I am wiser now. I am more of a politician than a technocrat.
Sanwo-Olu had gotten the blessing of APC National Leader Bola Tinubu and former governor of Lagos prior to the primaries.
Sanwo-Olu went on to win the polls.
