    LKJ was the last of the MOHINKAS,
    One of the best five(5) Governors Nigeria ever had.
    His legacy as Governor of Lagos state remains unparalleled. He established the NEW LAGOS that we all know and which endures till today.
    He was a success because he was a trained journalist..
    May Almighty Allah grant him peace perpetual and forgive his shortcomings.

    Far from him been a trained journalist. He is God fearing, imbibed godly moral – care for others, selflessness, integrity, honour, empathy, love, stewardship. He works for where he heads to-HEAVEN- and not HELL FIRE.
