Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode believes one day the State will produce their first female Governor.
The former accountant general of Lagos State made this remark on Wednesday when he received the winner of the 2017 Spelling Bee Competition & One-Day Governor, Miss Zuffon Bukola from Awodi Ora Senior Secondary School in Lagos House in Ikeja.
He said: “This is a significant day for Lagos State and it also signals what the future actually holds for Lagos State in which we.have seated here, two female strong members of the new State Executive Council and we have a female Governor and a female Deputy Governor.
It is also telling us a story about what the future of Lagos is all about that one day we would find seated here, not just a day governor, but for a period or tenure of four years, there would be a female Governor in this State.
We’ve had female Deputy Governors in this State; it also says something that these younger ones are telling our women in Lagos to.rise up and actually take their position.”
