An Australian citizen resident in Nigeria who also doubles as the Chairman of the serge group, Greg Todd, has joined other prominent Nigerians to congratulate the former Executive Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Dr. Lateef Kayode Jakande who clocked 91 recently.
While speaking to journalists, he charged other Nigerians to emulate the great legacy of the Elder statesman.
In his words” I feel it is worthy to celebrate the birthday of one Nigeria’s fathers, I commend a man that had and still have the interest of Nigerian people in his veins and heart.
Nigeria is faced with many challenges and needs to honor those that have blazed paths for others to follow.
Let the birthday of a great man, a selfless leader, be a reminder of what Nigerians can achieve and serve as a template for those that follow”.
“Congratulations and happy 91st birthday, may you have many more, and be comfortable that your legacy will live on long beyond your years.
More importantly, we wish in your twilight years you get to see the country you have devoted your life selflessly to, take a major turn for the better.”
‘”The second republic became a milestone in Nigerian history courtesy of your various tremendous, remarkable, and immense contributions across facets of human living like free education, housing, the metro line”.
