                                                                     The Lagos State Government has said it would immortalise the first civilian Governor of Lagos, late Alhaji Lateef Jakande, by building a monument to keep his memory alive.

Jakande died on February 11, 2021,

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Adenike Adedoyin-Ajayi, said this in a statement on Wednesday.

Adedoyin-Ajayi was quoted to have said this during a visit to the Jakande family to seek their buy-in ahead of the commencement of the initiative.

She said, “We are here to formally inform the family that Governor  Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved the erection of a monument of Baba Jakande to immortalise him and to keep his memory alive for everyone, including those yet unborn, so that they recognise and appreciate Baba for his landmark achievements in Lagos State.

“Baba’s name is already immortalised, because the history of Lagos cannot be told without talking about Alhaji Jakande, but with this gesture, we want generations yet unborn to also know him and the life he lived while on earth such that the younger generation can draw inspiration from him as they aspire to be leaders in their respective fields as well.”

Dr Lanre Adeboye thanked Governor Sanwo-Olu for recognising the contributions of her late father and for considering it necessary to keep his legacies and memories alive by approving the erection of the iconic monument.
