‘The Last Of The Titans’: Buhari, Tinubu Pay Tribute To Jakande

The late Lateef Jakande became governor under the platform of Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) founded by a former Premier of the Western Region, Obafemi Awolowo.


President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday paid tribute to the late Lagos State Governor, Lateef Jakande, and described him as one whose legacy would be remembered for long.

The Nigerian leader believes the former Governor of Lagos State sacrificed his life for others, restating that his imprint in the commercial centre will continue to be a source of inspiration.

While condoling with family, friends and associates of the elder statesman, Buhari in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, hailed the contributions of the first civilian Governor of Lagos State and former Minister of Works to the growth of democracy and good governance in the country.

He described Jakande as a patriot, whose wisdom will run through generations, especially in putting people first in development plans.
