President Muhammadu Buhari is presently in Lagos to inaugurate some developmental projects executed by the Lagos State Government, led by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode‘s administration.
Naija News recalls that the President and members of his entourage departed the Presidential wing of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja at about 9.48am.
President Buhari, who is on a one-day official visit to Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria, is expected back to Abuja immediately after the inauguration of the projects.
People shouting Ambode is commissioning uncompleted projects. is this the first time you people are hearing uncompleted projects being commissioned? So you want Sanwoolu to take the glory? If he didn't commission it, how do you want people to know he started the project?

On Buhari’s visit, he is expected to inaugurate the Institute of Maternal and Child Health (Ayinke House), an ultra-modern 170-bed Obstetrics and Gynaecology specialist hospital located within LASUTH and Lagos Theatre.
It is "in addy" commissioning as Ambode will soon leave office and he doesn't want Sanwoolu to take the credit. . https://t.co/o6rcHNLv7H

Other developmental projects to be inaugurated by the President include the Oshodi Transport Interchange and International Airport Road as well as 820 Mass Transit buses.
Gov. Ambode is trying to avoid argument on who did this project or who did that!
He is commissioning 65% Completed project!

Here are some other reactions to developmental projects executed by the Lagos State Government, led by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode‘s administration.
Am a PDP man, I love Ambode's gut, I love his giant stride towards some infrastructural projects, though many integral parts of Lagos had nothing to say about d administration but all in all, he performed creditably well better than his predecessors. For all…….. https://t.co/SosSHOrM6u

PMB is everyone's favourite Grandpa. He is over compensating with Ambode since he could not persuade Lagosians to give Ambode a second term.
