working visit and is a testimony to the landmark achievements in the
last one year of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as well as the good working
relationship between Lagos State and the Federal Government.

commission the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) Rescue
Unit in Cappa Oshodi built by the State Government to ensure prompt
and swift response to emergency situations in the State.

constructed Ago Palace Way in Okota, Isolo after which he will pay
homage to the Oba of Lagos, His Royal Majesty, Oba Babatunde Rilwanu
Aremu Akiolu at the Iga Iduganran, Lagos Island.
The Commissioner disclosed further that the President would later in
the day be hosted to a reception rally by the State Government at the
Tafawa Balewa Square, (TBS) Lagos where he will also commission and
hand over security equipment and vehicles contributed by the Governor
Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration to securities agencies to beef up
security in the state.
The release added that activities for the first day of the President's
visit would be rounded up with a State Banquet in his honour at the
Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island.
The President will on Tuesday participate as the Special Guest of
Honour at a breakfast session with Corporate Lagos to be hosted by
Governor Ambode at the Lagos State House, Marina, after which he will
have a short session with the public service at the State House,
The Commissioner quoted Governor Akinwunmi Ambode as being joyous over
this landmark presidential visit to the State that contributed so much
to his emergence as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He added that Lagosians are looking forward with excitement to receive
the President in the State, just as he urged residents to bear with
law enforcement agents and traffic control authorities who will effect
road diversions in some of the routes that the President motorcade
will pass through during the visit.
