Below are live pictures from the Tafawa Balewa Square, TBS, in Lagos where Babajide Sanwo-Olu will be sworn-in as governor of Lagos State.
Sanwo-Olu will be taking over from outgoing governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, who officially handed over yesterday.
In an appreciation message yesterday, Ambode said:
“To the Glory of God, I have just handed over the reins of government in Lagos State to His Excellency, Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu, after a rewarding 4-year experience. This would not have been possible without the support, cooperation and prayers of all Lagosians. I remain eternally grateful to you all. God bless you all. And to God be all the Glory.“
In response. Sanwo-Olu appreciated the governor for his stewardship in the last four years.
“Thank you H.E @AkinwunmiAmbode for your kind words today as you officially handed over your stewardship of our great state, Lagos.
Life is a succession of moments and today we are at the right place and moment to build.”
