Buhari praises Jakande @ 90, says ‘You Should Be Studied And Emulated By Upcoming Leaders’

President Buhari has joined family, friends, professional and political associates in celebrating the former governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Kayode Jakande, who turns 90 on July 23, 2019.

He congratulated him for his courage in pursuing a vibrant career in journalism and leaving a lasting legacy in politics and governance.

The president celebrated the milestone with the former governor and Minister of Works, whose sacrifice and large-heartedness saw the implementation of many developmental projects in Lagos like free education and low cost housing, with many beneficiaries with the establishment of Lagos State University and General Hospitals in Gbagada and Ikorodu, and health centres that catered for the poor and underprivileged.

As he turns a nonagenarian, President Buhari salutes the former governor’s patriotism, foresight, wisdom and counsels, believing that he etched his name in gold for posterity by making the most out of every opportunity, and should be studied and emulated by upcoming leaders.

The President prays that the almighty God will grant Alhaji Jakande good health and strength to keep inspiring young leaders and serving humanity.
