He's talking about Lagos State Governors but you jumped to bring in the Premier, Pa Awolowo. You're trying to cleverly derail the thread and not want to give credit to Alhaji Lateef Jagande as the best Governor of Lagos as noted by OP.

Why are you crying about Awolowo? I know you Ipob miscreants love to wail whenever Awolowo name is mentioned. Point is Ikeja is Awolowo's brainchild.

That doesn't negate what Jakande did in Lagos because he was a fantastic governor. Likewise Tinubu.

Anyway, Lagos isn't your business. Why don't you face what's happening in your region and the leaders in your region?

OK, he is the father of Lagos state and then what?

the Jakande is dead, progress needs to continue

if Jakande was the one that propose a metro, good for him

someone else is building it

development in Lagos state didn't stop at Jakande's doorsteps

Jakande has left his legacy, Tinubu continue the legacy

Jakande ruled Lagos for just 4 years, from 1979 to 1983 when Buhari struck. Today, his fingerprints are still there for the public to see.

He established:
Lagos State University
Nigerian Institute of Journalism
He completed General Hospital in Gbagada and Ikorodu.
He built 20 Health Centres within the state
He constructed over 30,000 housing units. Some of the housing units were in
Amuwo-Odofin, Ijaiye, Dolphin, Oke-Afa, Ije, Abesan, Iponri, Ipaja, Abule Nla, Epe, Anikantamo, Surulere, Iba, Ikorodu, Badagry.

In order to fund the constructions, he increased the tenement rates and prices of plots of land in Victoria Island and Lekki Peninsula. He didn't increase it in places where the poor were staying so it won't affect them. He cared for the poor. He also increased processing fees for lotteries, pools and gaming licences. This increased internally generated revenue of the state. He refused to collect loans so the state won't be in debt.

He also started a metro line project to facilitate mass transit. Buhari later cancelled it when he took over power. When the Military Administrator of Lagos under Buhari approached the Head of State to reconsider the cancellation of the project as Lagos State would still be made to pay for it as per the contractual agreement with China. Buhari said “I don’t bloody care”. This is the major reason why people suffer daily in traffic in Lagos today. Jakande's foresight would have put Lagos ahead of other cities in the world in metro lines.

Jakande was later charged, prosecuted and convicted of TREASON by Buhari regime. NOT CORRUPTION OR STEALING OR BULLION VAN, but TREASON! When he was arrested and tried by the kangaroo tribunal, they had nothing else to charge Jakande with but Treason! Not stealing or misappropriation of funds or corruption or borrowing, but Treason.

Jakande did all he did in just 4 years without borrowing a kobo! Can any of the Lagos State governors even be regarded as being worthy to be ranked close to Jakande? 30,000 housing units in 4 years! 20 health centres. Oh, I forgot Primary and secondary schools too! He established 23 local Governments council which were disbanded by the military when Buhari sacked democracy.

Jakande estates, infrastructure and great works are still visible in Lagos till today. A man who did all those without borrowing or plunging the state into debt should be seen as the Father of Lagos!

Tinubu has not build any hospital good enough for him to use in Lagos but always traveling abroad for treatment. That's how bad health sector is today but they tell you he built Lagos ignoring Jakande. How unfair and unjust can people be jettisoning the good works of Jakande, who was not corrupt and ascribing it to Tinubu?!

Copied!

Tinubu turn Lagos State into his personal ATM. Lagos State is owned by his families and cronies.

Lagos should be competing with Johannesburg, Casablanca,Cairo, Cape town etc. But it is opposite because One greedy kleptomaniac hold the state to hostage making Lagos the 2nd most livable city in the world due to Thugs, tout and hoodlums he recruited for Winning Lagos Election.

Lmao.

Go check on history. Majority of what became Lagos' today, including Ikeja were under the Western region which Awolowo was overseeing. Ikeja was Awolowo's brainchild.

Only thing that differentiate the likes of Jakande and Tinubu from Awolowo was the fact that they were governors of Lagos state while Awolowo was the governor of the Western region.

True but most of the mainland was then under the Western Region. Lagos territory consisted of the Islands and Yaba/Surulere. Western Region started from Fadeyi area, therefore, Ilupeju, Matori and Ikeja Industrial estates and GRAs were created by Pa Awolowo.

He constructed the Lekki - Epe Expressway. That led to the opening up of Lekki. The road terminated in VI years ago. We had to go through Ikorodu to get to Epe. I remember there were red and white buses like today's BRT that went as far as Epe.

Ipob miscreant keep wailing over what's not their business.

The father of Lagos is actually Awolowo. Ikeja is Awolowo's brainchild. Over 300 roads, several schools, housing estates, UNILAG etc, first TV in West Africa etc

Jakande also did a lot for Lagos with several housing estates, roads, schools and LASU etc

As for Tinubu, Lekki is his brainchild as well as BRT, schools, housing estates. Tinubu was also the one that built LASU teaching hospital and clinical schools. Also enormous increase in Lagos revenue.

“ As for Tinubu, Lekki is his brainchild as well as BRT, schools, housing estates”. Chai. What a very small child.

Tinubu?? Lekki?? How old were you when a man called Brigadier Raji Rasaki was the military governor of Lagos state. Have you ever heard of Maroko or Victoria Island extension? Please ask elders around you to tell you honestly the stories of Lagos Island up till 1989. That’s long before BAT became the governor.

Agbado urchins that were born yesterday should go and ask their parents about Jakande. This great man did wonders within 4 years without stealing money talk more of becoming landlord in every area of Lagos. Even today, we can see Jakande estate everywhere in Lagos with the houses now owned by Lagosians on merit.

However, one criminal seized all lands owned by the state. Instead of building hundreds of estates for Lagosians to live decently, he cornered everything for himself, family and cronies.

Only Tinubu owns Oriental hotel, bourdilion, Intercontinental hotel, TVC, The Nation and so many uncountable properties within and outside Lagos. He also collects 10% of all revenue generated in Lagos, a state that is reputed as the 5th largest economy in Africa.

If only Bat is as selfless as Jakande, Lagos would have been competing with Johannesburg and Cairo in terms of advancement but his greediness won't allow him.

May God continue to bless the soul of Jakande!

A late uncle of mine told me how he, a nobody, struggling in the 80s became a flat owner in one of the Jakande LSDPC Estates. Despite the cynicism shown by his peers towards this low-cost housing raffle thingy, man went on and bought the darn tickets regardless. But unlike what we have today in the public sector, this particular process, as it turned out, was as unbias as it was transparent.

My uncle couldn't believe his luck, when he was called to come get the keys to his new apartment. He birthed my cousins right inside that three bedroom flat; and today decades after, though he's passed on, his grandkids are still reaping the fruits sown by a certain Pa Jakande.

These are the real thoroughbred Omoluabi Yoruba greats that we know. The ones who don't care about money, but legacies and values that outlive them.

God bless you Pa Jakande.
