Tinubu reunites Ambode with Fashola, Sanwo-Olu

Published

President Bola Tinubu has reunited three of his successors as governor of Lagos State.

 

Lagos State has produced Babatunde Fashola, Akinwunmi Ambode, and Babajide Sanwo-Olu as governors after Tinubu.

 

Tinubu ruled Lagos State as governor from 1999 to 2007.

In 2007, he handed over to the immediate past Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who superintended over the state for another eight years.

At the expiration of his second tenure, Fashola handed over the baton of the state to Ambode.

A clash between Tinubu and Ambode saw him losing the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship primaries in the state in 2018.

During the primary election, Ambode lashed out at Tinubu and his successor, Sanwo-Olu.

The reconciliation process started when the incumbent governor visited the former during his 60th birthday recently.

Sanwo-Olu said Ambode dedicated his time to the service of Lagos State as a governor and civil servant.

In furtherance of the reconciliation process, Tinubu, Fashola, and Ambode were together yesterday at the welcome back party organized by the state governor in honour of the president.

Commenting on the meeting, Sanwo-Olu’s media aide, Gboyega Akosile tweeted: “Four Generations! Three former governors, the incumbent governor and a president- all from Lagos. God bless Lagos State. @officialABAT
@tundefashola @AkinwunmiAmbode
@jidesanwoolu.”

When asked if the government’s side was showing any sign of seriousness, the labour leader said, “No seriousness at all. Even state governors did not show up. Those who represented them, like Bauchi and Niger states, did not have the mandates to speak on their behalf.

Real Madrid’s goalkeeper shares recovery insights after two injuries

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has opened up about his recovery journey following two serious knee injuries.

 

Courtois said, “In August, I cried because the worst thing that can happen to you in football is a cruciate ligament injury. When I returned home, I said that I was going to work hard and come back stronger. That was my idea from the beginning: to stay positive, fight, never give up, and push my limits.

 

“Many thought my season was over, but I knew it wasn’t,” Courtois told Marca.

Recall that for most of the current season, Courtois missed out due to two injuries: a cruciate ligament tear and a meniscus injury. In his absence, first-choice goalkeeper was Chelsea’s loanee Kepa Arrizabalaga, and later, he faced competition from Andriy Lunin.

Upon his return, Courtois played in 3 La Liga matches, keeping clean sheets in all of them. In the last game against Alaves, the Belgian made 10 saves.

Earlier, it was reported that Courtois’ recovery from injury will be featured in a documentary series.
