“We considered the good work Tunde Fashola did in the 8 years he led our dear state and we believe he would be a worthy ambassador of Lagos state in the Federal Executive Council,We trust his judgement and his intelligence.
He put Lagos on the world map and we are proud to call him our own. We believe he will do very well in whatever role he is assigned by our fearless and visionary leader, President Muhammadu Buhari.”
With this endorsement by the trio of senators from Lagos state, Mr. Fashola is now expected to enjoy safe passage through the screening process.
