The Outgoing Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has said on Monday that he had grown wiser politically, having spent four years in office.
Ambode said this at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, when he went to pay what he called, ‘Thank you visit’ to President Muhammadu Buhari for commissioning some of the state’s projects during his last official visit to Lagos.
Asked to state what lesson he has learnt as a politician and in a very unpredictable terrain as Nigeria, the Lagos governor 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.”
President Buhari had visited Lagos last month to inaugurate some projects initiated by the Ambode administration.
