Governor of Lagos State

Akinwunmi Ambode (born June 14, 1963) is an accountant, an administrator and a public finance management expert. He is the Chief Executive Officer of Brandsmiths Consulting Limited – a firm that specializes in public sector finance management. Ambode was formerly the Accountant-General of Lagos State, Nigeria, and held many sensitive financial positions in the Lagos State government in a 27-year career in the Lagos State Civil Service. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) and a Member of the Nigerian Institute of Management. He is the founder of La Roche Leadership Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on developing the next generation of leaders.

  • As the commercial center of Nigeria, Lagos state always has problems, when it comes to security. A few months after he resumed office, the governor equipped the law enforcement agencies by acquiring 10 armoured tanks, three helicopters for aerial surveillance and policing, two gun boats, 15 armoured personnel carriers, and dozens of Isuzu trucks.
  • One of the things that brought joy to the faces of Lagos residents, especially towards the year was the LAKE rice initiative. As the year drew to an end foodstuff, especially rice experienced a price hike. However, earlier in the year, Lagos had partnered with Kebbi state to produce LAKE rice, which was sold for N12,000 (50kg bag); N6,000 (25kg); and N2,500 (10kg). This made many people quite happy.
  • In the aspect of roads, one of Governor Ambode’s 2016 achievements was the massive road construction and reconstruction which was kicked off by his government this year. The ‘114 Roads’ project where each of the 57 local councils in the state got two good roads was completed by May this year.
