The Lagos State All Progressives Congress mourns the passage of the elder statesman, an administrator per excellence and the first civilian governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande.
In a press release by Seye Oladejo, Lagos APC Spokesman, he said “the passage at this time is a colossal loss not only to the progressive family but also the entire state and our nation in general”.
Oladejo noted that “his landmark achievements as an astute administrator in the governance of Lagos State in the areas of education, housing, health-care and social infrastructure remain enduring legacies in his memory”.
“His demise at this trying time in the history of our nation when his rich experience would’ve been handy to resolve our national challenges is regrettable”.
“We pray that Almighty Allah will forgive his short-comings, grant him eternal rest and the entire family, immediate and political, the fortitude to bear the great loss”.
