The Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode seems to have learned a lot from his failed attempt to pick the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for a second tenure.
The governor, who spoke to State House correspondents yesterday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, said he used to see himself as a technocrat, but the time he spent in the office has changed his perception.
Ambode said: “You see, every politician learns every day. The fact remains that I came in as a technocrat. So, I use to call myself a techno-politician, but I think I am wiser now. I am more of a politician than a technocrat.”
Africa News24 (AN24) reports that Ambode will be handing over to Sanwo-Olu winner of the March 9 governorship poll, to become the first Lagos State governor to serve one term since 1999.
