This is meant to be good news but the absence of the man who started the project, Akinwumi Ambode , turned the good news to a bad one.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu made his first appearance since EFCC reactivated interest in probing him. The Jagaban arrived the venue with people cheering him.

The absence and non recognition of Akinwumi Ambode made angry Nigerians on Twitter to express their annoyance . Some praised the former Lagos Governor saying 80% of the projects Sanwo-Olu is commissioning were Ambode’s projects. Read their words below:
“Na Ambode work this one dey use claim champion. If CNN interview am again he go dey shake like man way get stroke”
“I don’t get this Ambode praise to “spite” Sanwo Olu. Haven’t we all be saying government should be a continuum?
He should goan call Ambode to commission a project he completed or what?”

“Thank you Ambode
, the navigator & initiator
You did only start this project but several others across the State,in 3 yrs you constructed & rehabilitated 450 major roads & 50 other impactful projects.Notably is the Agric-Ishawo dual carriageway.”
Official Oluwakorede, MPA (PHD soon)
“All I can is God bless Ambode, the navigator.
I’m sad that Gov Sanwoolu invited everybody, but not Ambode who initiated and mobilised the project and several others across the State.
Agege motorists, congrats

“Any one who lived in Lagos for the period of Ambode’s 4 years regime would know that he was a true governor with good intentions. He wanted to liberate Lagos and redefine the face of Lagos. His project during the 4 years can never be forgotten even till beautifying under bridges”
“Ambode’s projects are everywhere even two years after he left office. The Agege flyover that Sanwoolu is commissioning today with funfair is part of Ambode’s projects. Tinubu that went against Ambo is also there dancing while commissioning the supposed ‘failure’ project.
It is not bad to complete a project. It is even good for the progress of the State. However, it is important not to rewrite history by trying to undermine Ambode efforts during his tenure. 99% of projects being commissioned by Sanwoolu these days were from the previous admin.
And most of these projects are even 80% completion before the emergence of Sanwoolu.”
