“I Am More Of A Politician Than A Technocrat Now”- Ambode



The Federal High Court through Justice Chuka Obiozor on Tuesday ordered the freezing of three bank accounts allegedly linked to the Lagos State government and former governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

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.”
