Ambode revealed he is now wiser in politics

Ambode revealed

The Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has revealed that he is now wiser after spending four years as governor of the state. He said this while speaking to journalists after his visit to President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, to thank him for inaugurating some projects in the state.

In a statement on what he learnt during the election period as a politician, he said that he is now wiser as a result of the exposure he had.

Ambode also 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 am now wiser. I am more of a politician that a technocrat”.

The governor lost his attempt for a second term after he was defeated by Babajide Sanwo-Olu in the All Progressives Congress governorship primary election last year. Sanwo-Olu proceeded to win the March 9 governorship poll, leaving Ambode to become the first Lagos State governor to serve one term since 1999.
