Ahead of his handover later this month, Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has proclaimed that he is now more of a politician than a technocrat which he was, when he took over leadership in 2015.
While reponding to questions by journalists during his “Thank you visit’ to President Muhammadu Buhari at the state house on Monday, Ambode said, “You see, every politician learns every day.”
“The fact remains that I came in as a technocrat, so I used to call myself a techno-politician. But I think I am wiser now.
“I am more of a politician than a technocrat.”
The visit follows Mr. President’s visit to Lagos state to inaugurate some projects executed by the Ambode administration.
Ambode lost his re-election bid when he was trounced by Babajide Sanwoolu, the APC leadership’s favourite during the party’s primaries.
Sanwoolu eventually emerged winner of the Lagos state governorship election after he defeated opposition PDP’s Jimi Agbaje, 739,445 to 206,141 votes.
