How father missed son's one-day Governor meeting with Ambode


Winner of the 2016 Spelling Bee Competition, Master Olaseinde Olufemi Joshua on Friday narrated how his father, Mr. Olaseinde missed the meeting with Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and members of the State Executive Council.

Joshua, a student of Shasha Community Senior High School in Alimosho area of Lagos, who spoke at the Lagos House in Ikeja while being hosted as the 16th One-day Governor of the State, said his father would have loved to be present at the event but was unable to attend due to some health challenges.


Besides, Joshua described Governor, Ambode as the most labour-friendly Governor in Nigeria. XHe said despite the dwindling allocation from the Federal Government, Governor Ambode has remained committed to the prompt payment of workers salary.
He said:

"While over 29 states of the federation cannot afford to pay their workers, I really commend the Governor's hard work and determination to take Lagos State to the highest level." Joshua added that so far, Governor Ambode had lived up to the true meaning of the acronym of his name which he described as "AMBODE - Ambassadors of Meritorious, Brilliant, Organised and Dedicated Entity."
Responding, Governor Ambode ordered that Joshua's father be treated at the medical facilities of the State Government.

A deeply touched Governor Ambode said:
"It is unfortunate that his father could not make it for this very special occasion in the life of his child but will be attended to in the health facilities of the State Government."
Besides, Joshua was given a laptop, printer and generating set courtesy of the Governor's Office while other winners of the competition were given tab each.
