Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been sworn-in as the next governor of Lagos State. He took the oath of office moments ago as conducted by the Chief Judge of the State with his family members standing by his side. Obafemi Hamzat was also sworn in as the deputy governor of Lagos State. The colourful swearing-in ceremony took place today, Wednesday, May 29, 2019. Sanwo-Olu’s deputy Obafemi Hamzat also took his oath of office. After the swearing in, Sanwo-Olu, Lagos state’s new Chief Executive Officer, acknowledged the crowd in a parade on a motorcade.
His predecessor, former governor Akinwunmi Ambode was however curiously absently at the colourful event.
But Ambode explained the reason for his absence in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna, on Wednesday. He said his successor should be allowed to be the star of his inauguration. Here were his reasons below.
“I have already formally handed over reins of power in the state to the new governor in a most cordial and convivial ceremony at the State House yesterday. “The formal inauguration should have Mr Sanwo-Olu as the star of the day. I don’t think that glory should be shared with him by my presence.”
