Lagos seeks special status to honour Mobolaji Johnson

Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has told the Senate that granting Lagos a special status would honor the first military Governor of the state, the late Brigadier Mobolaji Johnson.

Sanwolu who said this at the State House, Marina, while receiving a delegation sent by the Senate to formally offer condolences to the state government and the late Johnson’s family on his death, described the late Johnson as a thinker who initiated ideas that set Lagos on the path of development, after the state was created in 1967.

The Governor stressed that the late Johnson had a great vision for Lagos, as the first Nigerian to govern the state, emphasizing that his dreams would be fully realized if the Federal Government created a special status for the state.

The eight-member delegation, led by the Deputy Chief Whip, Senator Aliyu Abdullahi, was constituted by the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan, following a motion moved by Senator Oluremi Tinubu, representing Lagos Central, informing the upper legislative chamber of Johnson’s death.
